Dunlop's Touch Technology helps drivers get in touch with their inner tire

Dunlop Tires announced at the Geneva Motor Show that it is now using what it calls ‘Touch Technology’ in all of its product development.

"It's a sensitivity. . .to feel how the tire reacts to changes in the roadway," said Andy Traicoff, director of Dunlop in the North American region. More tangibly, the technology initiative includes:
  • Multi-Radius Tread technology, which ensures even pressure distribution in the contact patch and a larger tire footprint.
  • JointLess Band technology
  • A stability rib in the tread design helps maintain constant road contact
  • Solid shoulder construction
