What is a Directional tyre? Directional tyres are identified due to their distinct, one-way tread patterns, with a tread “flow” that suggests a rolling direction. The tyre tread pattern is designed in the shape of the letter “V” or “U”.

One advantage of this tyre design is increased resistance to aquaplaning in wet conditions. A handy feature recently in Eastern Australia. The Dunlop Direzza DZ102 is one such Directional tyre, so we are proud to announce that the upgraded Dunlop Direzza DZ102+ has just been released in Australia and New Zealand, offering both improved wet weather braking and wet weather handling over the DZ102 predecessor.

The Direzza DZ102+ performance improvements are a result of clever changes to the rubber compound without needing to change the tread pattern from the Direzza DZ102. The sidewall is changed to show the new name accordingly.
