Dunlop Veuro VE302 – Damn Quiet Tyres!

45 comments

Hi Guys,

I’m sure you guys are thinking that AutoKinetics we only do performance tyres right?

In fact, we have many requests on quiet tyres, especially tyres like ContiPremiumContact, Yokohama ES501 etc. Today I want to show you guys what actually make a good quiet tyre, and how they should not compromise on dry and wet grip despite their quietness. With that, lets look at the new Dunlop Veuro VE302 tyre, a new addition to Dunlop’s comprehensive tyre range.

This tyre is developed by Dunlop to be the most comfortable and silent tyres in their arsenal. Let us find out what are the technologies implemented in to make this such a quiet tyre.

In designing the VE302, Dunlop developed an acoustic measuring device, “Acoustic Holography” to find a connection between visual control as a function of road noise level. As a result of the test, using simulated pattern shifting, Dunlop gave the VE302 a 5-staged mixed-shaped arrangement of angles and segments to achieve the optimal tyre groove arrangement.

In normal cruising over undulating terrain, Dunlop deduced that tyre noise is generated by the inner strip of the edge of the tyre. As such, a high rigidity material is used on the edges of the strip to reduce such noises. As the pressure of the edge of the strip compresses the mid-section of normal tyres, acoustic resonance will occur in the cavity area. As a result, Dunlop has added a special sound-absorbing sponge to spread the tyre impact and reduce tyre internal resonance. In internal tests, Dunlop has verified a reduction of ~1.5dB(A) while travelling at 40 km/h.

In the development of the VE302, Dunlop has implemented an asymmetric 45% inner – 55% outer tread in order to achieve good all round handling technique and characteristic of the pattern. A 10% increase in rigidity of the longitudinal lateral tread pattern of the exterior block improves cornering, when the blocks are subjected to a larger ground contact area. Also, good water drainage is complemented by the medial and central part of the groove design, with channels designed to eject the water at along the orientation of the tread. With computer simulation, Dunlop has achieved an optimal compromise between grip and stability in the wet.

As you can see from the short technical explanation, the Dunlop Veuro VE302 has an innovative design to achieve good dry and wet traction, comfort and most importantly, silence. Lets face it, I am definitely not recommending this tyre for people who “zhua” (drive aggressively). There are better tyres by Dunlop for the job, such as the Sport Maxx TT and DZ101. This is for the driver who enjoys a comfortable ride to and from work amidst the hustle and bustle of Singapore driving, and for the occasional jaunts up north, or, in other words, a magic carpet ride. Yes, drivers of Nissan Teana, Toyota Camry and Honda Accords, if you want to transform your ride into the realms of Lexus-quietness, I am looking at you πŸ˜‰

In fact, a recent customer who fitted these tyres on a Honda Accord commented that they are “damn quiet tyres!

      Hi Mich, somehow your email keeps rejecting my mail. The Dunlop VE302 does not come in this size. For this size, our current offers are:

      Pirelli P Zero Rosso Asimmetrico (made in Europe)
      – $360 per tyre nett

      Continental CSC3 (made in Europe)
      – $370 per tyre nett

      Continental CSC5 (made in Europe)
      – $395 per tyre nett

      If you are looking for a touring tyre which caters to quietness and comfort (similar to the VE302), we would recommend the Pirelli PZero Rosso Asimmetrico as it is designed for that purpose and also has good grip. The CSC tyres are catered more towards high performance as they are Continental’s premium performance tyres.

      All prices quoted are on the condition for the purchase of 4 tyres, and inclusive of all relevant taxes, installation, and balancing. We also provide free tyre repair, nitrogen refill and rotation every 10000km for the lifetime of the tyres purchased.

      Please let us know if you are interested beforehand so that we can ensure that we have sufficient stock on hand. Thank you.

        I apologise, my mailbox was full. The size I’m looking for is actually 240/40 R18. Does 245 and 240 differ much? Sorry for the trouble.

    Is VE302 a touring or performance tyre? My current tyre size is 225/60/16, many commented a “weird” size. (The original was 215/65/16.) Can’t remember why I ended with this “weird” size. Wanted to get the size right again. Will it make a lot of diff between 225/60/16 vs 215/65/16? Will it be better to use 225/65/16? Please send me a for both 215/65/16 and 225/65/16. Thanks.
