Steering responsiveness: Steering responsiveness refers to the ability of the tyres to transmit steering commands quickly to the road. Greater steering responsiveness means that you have greater control over the car while cornering at high speeds or during sudden manoeuvres undertaken to counter unexpected obstacles on the road. The Bridgestone D33 tyres tread pattern incorporates large tread blocks on the shoulder that contribute to increased steering responsiveness and improve the handling characteristics significantly.

This indicates shorter braking distances on wet asphalt (to complete standstill from a speed of 80km/hr) and is associated with increased safety. The wet grip classifications range from A to F, with ‘A’ standing for the shortest braking distance. The difference A class and F class can be over 18 metres.
Tyre noise levels: The tread profile is optimised to reduce noise levels significantly. In fact, the Bridgestone D33 tyres are labelled as emitting 69dB noise, placing the tyre is category ‘A’, which corresponds to the quietest tyres. So you are assured of a quiet and peaceful drive at all times.
Fuel efficiency: The Bridgestone D33 tyres greatly reduce rolling resistance to enhance the fuel economy and offer large cost savings on fuel in the long run. The tyres are labelled category ‘B’ for fuel efficiency, which uses 0.1litre per kilometre less fuel than tyres that are labelled C for this parameter.
