NEW ORLEANS—Bridgestone/Firestone Inc. is incorporating UNI-T technology into the associate brand lines of its Dayton Tire Co. unit for the first time in 1999. Five performance passenger tire lines with speed ratings of H or above will receive the technology this year, the company announced at Dayton Tire's annual sales meeting in January.
The lines, all of which come with a 30-day ``test drive'' period and a 100-percent free replacement limited warranty, are the:

Dayton Daytona HR—available in 16 sizes with a 400 AA UTQG rating.

Peerless Sprint G/T HR.
The last three lines will be available in June, the company said. All have a UTQG rating of 400 AA and carry a 40,000-mile limited treadwear warranty.
