The Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport AS is a all season touring tire that lives up to the high performance standards of luxury and performance Crossovers, Sport Utility Vehicles, and Premium Sport Trucks. They are made to handle any weather condition, even light snow. Designed to provide performance that is in tune with today’s popular light-duty light trucks, the Dueler H/P Sport AS blends traction, handling, and braking, with ride comfort and wear. The Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport AS has a high silica tread compound that helps to improve control in wet weather conditions, and also improves traction in snowy conditions by preventing the rubber from cooling down in the snow. The compound is then molded into a symmetric tread design, with reinforced, closed shoulder blocks, that improve the handling and cornering abilities of the tire. It also has wide criss cross tread grooves that help to evacuate water away from the contact patch of the tread, which enhances traction, and prevents hydroplaning. These tires were made to handle all terrains while providing a smooth ride with outstanding traction even in wet conditions. The tire promotes quick steering response and increases grip for cornering while preserving the sidewall appearance over time.
