Dayton D320 sport-touring tyre. A great all-round performer.
Bridgestone has launched the Dayton D320 sport-touring tyre, competing in the economy segment. The stylish new tyre is designed to provide drivers of family saloons and estates with high level all-round performance and good value for money.
The performance target of the new Dayton D320 was to deliver excellent dry handling without sacrificing comfort, while providing the safest possible wet braking and hydroplaning performance.
Advanced tread pattern technology was applied to the D320 in order to achieve this all-round performance. The continuous centre rib provides linear stability and a strong centre feel to road handling, while its tapered design with lens-shaped blocks helps reduce water turbulence on the block edges, for faster drainage away from the contact patch.
Wet performance is enhanced by the dynamic curved shape of the block edges which minimizes water resistance at the front of the block. The water is then rapidly cleared away from the tread centre to the shoulder by the Super Slant Groove design, which also provides even contact pressure distribution for balanced wet and dry performance.
The sporty character and look of the new Dayton D320 will appeal to a wide range of drivers who want confident handling and safe braking – but still demand a good level of comfort.. It is available from January 2009 in 41 sizes from 40 to 60 series, for rim sizes of 15” to 18”.
