Firestone Duraforce DT 305/70D16.5 (12-16.5) 129A8 12 Ply AS A/S All Season Tire
Firestone Duraforce DT
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- All weather traction
- Improved load durability
- Longer lasting tread life
The Firestone Duraforce DT is an all season tire manufactured for industrial vehicles.
The tire promotes a secure performance. It manages to prevent damage to the tread area and sidewalls and ensure a safer drive. The tread’s high void ratio and directional lug placement upgrade the self-cleaning nature of the tread. This ejects rocks stuck between the tread elements and actively resists stone retention from damaging the casing. The stronger sidewall construction, on the other hand, prevents punctures, cuts and other damage from harming the sidewalls and shortening the tire’s usability. This combination guarantees high driving safety levels on the industrial site.
The special durable tire compound and the deep tread depth work together to extend the tire’s usability. The large lug pattern and the stronger compound significantly slows the tread wear rate down. They ensure even pressure distribution along the tire’s footprint which prevents irregular wear formations across the tread area. The durable compound greatly decreases the tread wear rate, lengthening the usability and the service life.
The Duraforce DT features a reinforced internal structure. The model’s full steel belt construction increases the load and driving durability as it maintains the ideal tire shape under the load and driving pressure affecting the model. The stronger structure does not allow the tire to deform under the pressure, which improves its load carrying and withstanding ability. As a result, the tire’s load capacity is significantly improved, ensuring a secure driving experience.
This is a bias ply or diagonal tire. Due to the tire's internal construction and size, it is possible that the tire will look deformed. Smaller diagonal tires do not have reinforced constructions that can keep the tire from deforming. The bias construction and the small tire's non-reinforced internal structure allow the tire to fold in when it is deflated or not properly inflated. This is not constructional damage or an issue; it is a normal occurrence with such tires. In such cases, the tire needs to be mounted and inflated to the proper PSI or, in some instances, an inner tube needs to be added. The proper PSI and the inner tube are able to maintain the tire's ideal shape, preventing the bias plies from looking deformed. This ensures their performing safety and durability.
