The Grandtrek Touring A/S is Dunlop’s Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tire developed to help crossover, sport utility vehicles and light duty pickup trucks meet the on-road challenges of everyday driving. The Grandtrek Touring A/S features Dunlop’s Touch Technology to enhance road feedback and handling in dry and wet conditions, as well as was designed to combine ride and noise comfort with year-round traction, even in light snow.
The Grandtrek Touring A/S molds a tread compound that remains pliable across a wide range of temperatures into an asymmetric tread design to provide all-season traction and handling. Its stiffer outboard tread pattern features a notched outboard shoulder supported by a circumferential rib to enhance ride comfort, steering response and stability on the road. Siped central tread blocks along with independent inboard shoulder blocks enhance all-season traction and braking in light snow and stormy weather.
The tire’s internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by Dunlop’s JointLess Band (JLB) of spirally wrapped nylon under the tread to provide strength on top of a polyester cord body that helps cushion the ride. All sizes of the Grandtrek Touring A/S come with a flanged lower sidewall to help reduce the possibility of curb damage to expensive wheels.
