With its ultra-wear-resistant tread compound, large pattern interior tread blocks, and heat-releasing shoulder design, the DH2 is engineered to go the distance — quietly, stylishly and with a great wet-road grip that keeps you stable in the rain.
The DH2 is a quality all-season performance touring tire that is manufactured with a special tread compound that decreases rolling resistance. It is manufactured in over 60 sizes, so it can serve a full-range of passenger, SUV and crossover vehicles. The DH2 comes complete with a long-life, 40,000 mile limited tire warranty.
Features & Benefits
Asymmetric Pattern Design. Our asymmetric 5-pitch tread pattern is designed to blend the requirements of dry grip and water dispersal, giving the driver a larger contact area and consistent wear for longer tire life. Larger tread ribs/blocks on the outside increase cornering stability while smaller inner blocks aid in dissipating water.
Four-wide longitudinal grooves. The grooves evacuate water and enhance longitudinal traction to prevent lateral slide improving wet driving performance.
Wear-resistant shoulder design. Integrated heat-resisting bars in the shoulder reduce irregular tread wear and dampen wind noise. This highly stable shoulder profile also pays off in great high-speed cornering.
3D Shoulder Grooves. Reduce road noise for a quiet and comfortable ride.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

04.08.2019fromJohn I have had these tires for 10 000 km now. Only 3 days after I got them I had to drive in torrential rain on the highway in cold conditions. The tire was amazing. Sure footed, linear and progressive and it gave me a great feeling of safety even when driving through deeper puddles. In dry conditions, the tire is fine, it can tram line a bit on California's horrible concrete roads in and around LA. But when on a tar highway, they become really quiet and comfortable. I usually have an economy minded driving style so I lift and coast alot. This tire is pretty fuel efficient if inflated to the right pressures. Go slightly above what the car manufacturer suggests. When I'm driving enthusiastically, the tire does become noisy and protests quite a bit when pushed to corner hard. In the dry, high acceleration and corner speed is decent. In the wet, hard acceleration is acceptable however the tire lets go at lower wet speeds than others when cornering.
Would I buy it again? For the price? Yes.
