- Vibration free drive
The Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport AS RFT (AR) is a performance and high performance, depending on the speed rating of the specific size, all season tire built for passenger vehicles and SUVs. This tire is the original equipment tire for select Alfa Romeo vehicles.
The tire is a run flat model. It means that its reinforced internal structure is able to withstand the weight of the vehicle and its passengers for 50 miles up to the speed of 50 mph after air pressure loss. When air pressure leaves the tire due to a puncture or other damage, the tire can still be driven on. This allows the driver to safely arrive at a location where they can change or fix the damaged tire. These tires are made for vehicles without space for a spare tire. They cannot be mixed with regular non-run flat tires on the same vehicle.
The tire has superb all weather traction and road grip, even in winter conditions, due to the high silica-enhanced compound. This innovative tread compound improves wet and winter weather traction. The circumferential and lateral grooves help eliminate water from under the tires footprint, resisting hydroplaning and offering a safer drive. The special tread and siping design provide additional biting edges in winter weather and help increase the road grip while maneuvering.
These extra biting edges, along with the computer-optimized symmetric tread pattern, also help improve and maintain the tires exceptional performance. The tire grips the road well in all weather conditions and at all speeds. The silica-infused tread is modelled into a symmetrical design to help boost the tires cornering, maneuvering and braking abilities in dry and wet weather conditions. The silica compound offers high speed stability as well, further improving the tires capabilities.
The tires L.L. Carbon construct enhances the tires tread wear. This carbon construct and the equally distributed driving force prevent irregular wear and lengthen the tires life. Furthermore, the tire is sturdier and is resistant to accidental damages, such as chipping, cracking and tearing through the special long carbon structure.
The Dueler H/P Sport AS RFT (AR)s uniformity is boosted by the continuous cable strand in the bead construction, or O-Bead structure. This offers a vibration free driving experience.
