The Dunlop GrandTrek Touring AS tire is a Crossover and Sport Utility all season tire. It was created specifically for use on Crossover Utility Vehicles, Sport utility Vehicles and light duty pickup trucks. They help these vehicles to meet the challenges of the road for everyday driving. Made with Dunlop’s Touch Technology these tires enhance road feedback as well as handling in wet and dry conditions. They are also designed to provide a low noise, comfortable ride with all year traction including in light snow. The tread compound allows the tire to remain pliable in different temperatures. Its asymmetric design allows it to be good for sue in all seasons providing good traction and handling. The outboard tread pattern is stiffer with a notched shoulder which is supported by a circumferential rib. This provides enhanced comfort with stability on the road and good steering response. With independent inbound shoulder blocks and siped central tread blocks the tire provides all season traction as well as braking including in stormy and snowy weather. Internally the tire features twin steel belts that have been reinforced with Joint Less Band or JLB which is a propriety material from Dunlop. This spirally wrapped nylon is found under the tread and it helps to provide strength above the polyester cord body, helping to cushion the ride. These tires come with a flanged lower sidewall to help with the reduction of curb damage on wheels that are more expensive.
