Tyre: Bridgestone D840


Driving a fairly heavy vehicle like your SUV or CUV or light truck on highways can be quite an intimidating experience. As you cruise along at the high speeds capable of being achieved by the vehicle, your confidence level depends considerably on your ability to control the car. Additionally, how quickly your vehicle responds to braking and how efficiently it deals with surface water are other important parameters that can contribute further to your highway driving experience. The Bridgestone D840 tyres have been developed by Bridgestone Tyres precisely to address these issues and deliver a comfortable and confident drive on highways. 

Large shoulder blocks: The Bridgestone D840 tread design comprises large rectangular tread blocks on the tyre shoulder that enhance grip on dry surface and contribute to superior handling. As a result, you experience predictable handling and precise control over the vehicle at all speeds, increasing your confidence tremendously.
Central circumferential grooves: Coming to the central tread profile, in this area, the Bridgestone D840 tyres are equipped with circumferential and lateral grooves. The grooves siphon off the water from the surface, preventing it from coming between the tyre and the road. Water in the contact patch increases the risk of aquaplaning and can cause the vehicle to skid while unexpectedly coming across puddles at high speeds. Thus the Bridgestone D840 tyres enhance safety on wet roads.
Optimised pattern: The arrangement of the tread blocks is optimised through high end computer software to minimise tyre noise levels and deliver a quiet and comfortable drive. Additionally, the Bridgestone D840 tyres also score well on parameters of braking responsiveness and tyre longevity.

The Bridgestone D840 tyres are the original equipment for sturdy 4x4 pick up trucks like the Nissan Navara. The other popular tyre from this range the Bridgestone D687 tyre is original equipment for 4x4 SUVs like the Mazda Tribute and Subaru Forester. The Bridgestone D840 tyres have no doubt leveraged on the company’s technological expertise to achieve the desired results. This technology comes in the form of an innovative tread design that makes this possible.
