The manufacturer’s latest all-terrain tyre has been designed to offer the assurance to push the 4×4 to its limits on and off the road
The Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain A/T002 premium all-terrain tyre is available now. Designed to handle off-road challenges while offering good on-road performance, the Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain A/T002 offers improved adaptation and reaction over different types of terrain; excellent wet and dry grip; and improved mileage over the Bridgestone Dueler A/T001. The manufacturer said the tyre meets drivers’ needs for safety and all-terrain performance, while offering the feeling of freedom and adventure.
Bridgestone says the A/T002 has an aggressive design for better adaptation and reaction over different types of terrains. Its innovative hexagonal block shape and pattern architecture promote more traction and braking balance on different surfaces. They also give the tyre the capacity to grasp mud and snow while keeping the tread clean when back on asphalt.
The tyre was engineered for improved wet and dry grip, giving drivers more control in both straight and cornering manoeuvres. Thanks to the high silica compound, the Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain A/T002 delivers superior adhesion on wet surfaces. The tyre is also certified with 3PMSF and M+S markings, making it fully winter-ready and compliant with winter tyre legislation.
Bridgestone says the tyre has improved mileage by a massive margin: 40 per cent compared to its predecessor. This has been made possible by its maximised footprint width, optimised contact patch and increased skid depth.
Developed and manufactured in Europe, the new Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain A/T002 is available in 43 sizes ranging from 15 to 19 inches.
The all-terrain tyre was designed and tested at Bridgestone’s European R&D Centre using Virtual Tyre Development technology. This sustainable approach enables a digital version of an in-development tyre to be created and tested virtually before building prototypes, leading to savings in raw materials and CO2 emissions during development.
The Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain A/T002 is also the result of the experience and expertise that Bridgestone gained while developing its original fitment tyre designed specifically for the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato. As the supercar’s exclusive tyre partner, Bridgestone custom-developed the world-first supercar run-flat all-terrain tyre to enhance the all-terrain capabilities of the Huracán Sterrato, while maximising the thrill and fun of driving on asphalt.
