Dunlop’s standard highway all season tire for light trucks and sport utility vehicles is the Grandtrek. The Grandtrek has been designed to deliver a comfortable ride, increased noise reduction, and year round traction, even in light snow. Dunlop Grandtrek tires are designed to provide a balance of traits that are appropriate for today’s luxury sport utility vehicles and lavish pickup trucks. The original equipment Grandtrek tires were developed to emphasize the low rolling resistance characteristics that were molded into the tread. This helped to increase vehicle fuel economy above the average fuel efficient tire, and increase the tread wear, and bad weather traction. On the outside the Dunlop Grandtrek tires feature crosscut sipes, wide circumferential grooves, and deep lateral grooves to provide the biting edges that are needed to enhance traction in poor weather conditions. The Dunlop’s all season compound molded into its asymmetric tread design combines independent intermediate middle tread blocks, outside shoulder blocks, and a continuous center rib which work together to help enhance dry traction and tread wear. On the inside a Dimensionally Stable Polyester cord body and bead design promote a comfortable ride, tread wear, and excellent handling with the use of stabilization using twin steel belts.
