BUFFALO, N.Y.—Dunlop Tire Corp. has certified that 10 of its winter tire lines—six for the Dunlop brand and two each for its Remington and Centennial associate brands—meet the new Rubber Manufacturers Association standard that designates tires designed for use in severe snow conditions. Tires in the 10 passenger and light truck lines will carry the new mountain-and-snowflake symbol in addition to the M&S symbol on their sidewalls to distinguish them as true snow tires and differentiate them from all-season tires that also carry the M&S designation.
The Dunlop-brand passenger lines that meet the new RMA standard are the: Graspic HS1, Graspic HS2, SP Winter Studdable and SP Winter Sport M2. Two Dunlop light truck lines also meet the standard: the Grantrek SJ4 and Radial Rover R/T (P-metric sizes only).
The Centennial Radial Traction and Remington S.T. Radial also meet the new standard, as do P-metric sizes of the Centennial Campaigner C/T and Remington Wide Brute X/T light truck lines.
The severe snow conditions standard was developed jointly by the RMA and the Rubber Association of Canada
