The Dunlop GranTrek AT2 all-season passenger tire is an almost ideal universal model for off-road passenger cars - crossovers and SUVs. The abbreviation AT stands for all-terrain, i.e. this tire is capable of providing confident movement, both on asphalt and over rough terrain. At the same time, one cannot fail to note the wide range of standard sizes of this model, since it is perfectly suited for installation on most modern crossovers and SUVs.
This tire is available in "Q", "S", and "H" speed ratings.
This is a truly versatile tire. The drawing of this model was created using the most modern digital technologies. The deep multi-modulus tread, elastic rubber compound, and the presence of sipes make this model truly all-season.
The tire provides good cross-country ability and comfort when driving on various road surfaces.
The tire engineers of the company preferred to equip this model with a tread pattern with a classic five-rib design. Those. the tread pattern consists of five longitudinal ribs, which contributes to a more even distribution of external pressure over the contact patch, reducing noise levels and reducing the likelihood of uneven wear. However, there are essentially seven longitudinal ribs of the tread, since in the central part of the tread there are two rows of combined separate blocks, each of which consists of two parts that form additional ribs.
Another distinctive feature of the Dunlop GrandTrek AT2 tread is the design of its central rib, which is divided by diagonal drainage grooves into very long blocks. The large length of the blocks made it possible to ensure their high structural rigidity, and the grooves provided additional sharp edges. As a result, it was possible to achieve excellent directional stability and high acceleration efficiency.
The optimal balance of on-road and off-road performance is achieved through a special tread pattern. When manufacturing the tread, advanced technologies were tried on. Thanks to this, the DUNLOP GRANDTREK AT2 tire has a long service life and high grip on wet roads. The “P” mark in the size stands for “Passenger Car Tire”.
The next innovation can be safely considered the tread pattern itself, with its structure reminiscent of the letter "S". Such a non-directional pattern, saturated to the limit with many free-standing blocks with sharp edges, allows you to overcome fairly difficult off-road sections with confidence. At the same time, cross-country performance is equally high, both when moving forward and backward. Those. the tire allows, if necessary, to get out of a difficult situation in reverse.
Main features of the Dunlop GrandTrek AT2 tire
- The original S-shaped symmetrical tread pattern provides excellent grip on surfaces with different characteristics in all road conditions;
- Rigid central rib, divided into blocks, due to which the tire demonstrates excellent directional stability and high traction;
- Multiple blocks in the center of the tread form a large number of sharp edges, which improves traction on slippery surfaces, and also allows you to more confidently overcome off-road conditions.
Highlights Dunlop Grandtrek AT2
- low sound volume;
- comfortable control;
- perfect appearance.
The optimal tread pattern contributes to confident off-road driving. Dunlop Grandtrek AT2 is equipped with large tread blocks, thanks to which this tire deforms less at high speed. As a result, it has a rather beneficial effect on the controllability of the vehicle while driving.
When developing this model of tires, the latest research was applied. Only thanks to these studies, volumetric tread blocks have been created. Tires contain sipes that increase in length, the length of which increases with wear. In this regard, the bonding properties are maintained at the same level as that of unused SUV tires.
The tread pattern is maximally optimal, in this regard, Dunlop Grandtrek AT2 has the ultimate off-road capability. The connection of the tire to the road is analyzed by its print. The more distinct the imprint on the surface, the better the connection. The tread block pressure in these car tires is similar throughout the contact patch. The tread blocks move away from the slush, putting pressure on it.
