Designed to suit SUVs, the 215/60R16 95H D683 provides a quiet and comfortable ride. "We noticed a clear gap in the marketplace with Subaru Forester and Outback drivers in particular struggling to find a suitable Highway Luxury tyre," said Burkhard Kabelitz, Bridge-stone's National Technical Field Service & Product Planning Manager. "The 215/60R16 95H D683 offers class-leading technology and benefits and we are now importing one size only of this Japanese product."The D683 provides passenger car like comfort, excellent handling on wet and dry roads, long wear life and has excellent high speed stability and manoeuvrability." Soon to be introduced into the Australian market in a large range of Australian and Japanese made sizes, the D683 is solely supplied to the replacement market and incorporates Bridge-stone's innovative Donuts technology.
This technology means the Dueler D683 delivers a high level of ride comfort, low noise and excellent manoeuvrability. The advanced tread block design - developed to provide uniform contact pressure between the tread and the road surface - increases tyre life by minimising irregular wear and gives greater road-holding and stability. "The provision of the 215/60R16 95H D683 for SUVs such as the Subaru Forester and Outback means the benefits of Bridgestone Australia's breakthrough tyre technology are becoming more accessible," Burkhard said. "We also introduced the 235/60R17 D683 for Ford Territory in January this year. "Reliability, safety and performance make the D683 the tyre of choice for SUV vehicles in the urban market."
