Graspic DS-2 tires represent the 2nd generation of Dunlop Digi-tire
Studless Ice & Snow winter tires designed to deliver traction for
drivers who want enhanced control in snow & on ice. Graspic DS-2
tires are available to fit many vehicles including coupes, sedans
& family vans.
Graspic DS-2 tires use Dunlopís Digital Rolling Simulation II
technology (computer enhanced design) to develop tires with enhanced
durability & traction.
Graspic DS-2 studless winter tires feature a glass fiber-reinforced,
high silica tread compound molded into a heavily zigzag siped, low
void, symmetric tread design with a wide, central snow pillar groove
to provide traction on ice & in snow without resorting to
traditional metal studs. The Graspic DS-2 studless winter tire's
tread groove optimization, high contact area & twin center ribs
reduce tread noise while enhancing tread life & maintaining
continuous rubber-to-road contact.
Graspic DS-2 winter tires meet the industryís severe snow service
requirements & most sizes are branded with the
snowflake-on-the-mountain symbol. They feature blackwall styling &
are available in Q-speed rated, 80-, 70-, 65-, 60-, 55-, 50- &
45-series sizes for 13" through 17" wheel diameters.
NOTE: The first 55% of the Graspic DS-2ís tread depth features
Dunlopís high-grip silica-enhanced compound while the remaining 45%
features an all-season tread compound. Snow platform indicators
(basically, snow wear bars) are molded into the Graspic DS-2ís tread
grooves to inform the driver when ice & snow traction will be
reduced as the tireís tread wear reaches the point where the premium
high grip silica tread compound is about to wear away.
Install Graspic DS-2 tires in sets of four only.
Due to the traction capabilities of the Graspic DS-2, Dunlop
recommends using Graspic DS-2 tires only in sets of four to provide
the best handling characteristics & tire performance.
