Homologated tyres are those that have been approved directly via a manufacturer. These tyres are ones that have met the standards and regulatory requirements of the manufacturer.
The energy lost when a tyre is in motion is known as 'rolling resistance'. This has a direct impact on fuel consumption.
A tyre's rolling resistance score ranges from A to G. Over the life of the tyre, fitting an A rated tyre could save you up to 6 litres of fuel when compared to a G rated tyre.
A tyre's wet grip capacity is expressed in Grades from A to G.
The difference in braking distances between each grade is roughly 3m - an average car length. This makes average stopping distance between an A and G rated tyre 18m. That's 4 car lengths.
The exterior noise grade of a tyre is expressed in decibels - accompanied by one, two or three sound waves, with one wave being the best noise level performance.
To achieve the best grade, a tyre’s noise level must be at least 3dB under the legal limit set by the EU.
The Bridgestone Dueler range has now been expanded to include the Dueler HP Sport tyre.
The Dueler HP Sport is primarily designed to deliver outstanding handling and grip for high performance 4WD Vehicles.
Designed with a high silica tread compound, the Dueler HP Sport also offers class leading wet performance and steering response as well as a head-turning sidewall design.
- Asymmetric Tread: Asymmetrical tyres have a tread pattern that is different from one side to another offering a balance for dry and wet grip.
- Low Noise: Tyre designed to reduce noise.
- Performance: Superior performance characteristics combining handling, cornering and braking.
- Steering Response: High level of steering response.
- Wet Performance: Exceptional handling in hazardous, wet conditions.
