Dunlop Graspic DS-3
The Graspic DS-3 represents the third
generation of Dunlop Digi-tire Studless Ice and Snow winter tires
developed for the drivers of coupes and sedans, as well as family
minivans and crossover utility vehicles. Graspic DS-3 tires use
Dunlop's Digital Rolling Simulation II technology (computer enhanced
design) and premium tread compounding to deliver wintertime traction
in snow and on ice.
Graspic DS-3 studless winter / snow tires feature a silica-based,
glass fiber-reinforced tread compound molded into a symmetric
independent block tread design to provide grip in snow and on ice
without resorting to traditional metal studs. High-density
Miura-shaped sipes (featuring a three-dimensional interlocking zigzag
design) help stiffen the tread blocks to promote steering feel and
even tread wear. The Graspic DS-3's Digital Rolling Simulation II
technology helps optimize tread pattern stiffness to enhance footprint
pressure distribution for improved grip and treadlife.
Graspic DS-3 winter tires meet the industry's severe snow service
requirements and are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol.
NOTE: The first 55% of the Graspic DS-3's tread depth features
Dunlop's 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-3's tread
grooves to inform the driver when ice and snow traction will be
reduced as the tire's tread wear reaches the point where the premium
high-grip silica tread compound is about to wear away.
Install Graspic DS-3 tires in sets of four only.
Due to the traction capabilities of the Graspic DS-3, Dunlop
recommends using Graspic DS-3 tires only in sets of four to provide
the best handling characteristics and tire performance.
