Bridgestone Americas is now offering a new wide base radial truck tire for on-and-off-highway applications—the Firestone FS818.
The tire has been designed for use in all positions and features a wide base design for higher payloads, the tiremaker said. The FS818 utilizes special tread compounds to help resist cuts, chips, tearing, and irregular wear. The tire is also designed with a deep, self-cleaning tread pattern.
“We recognized a need for a durable, hardworking tire that is versatile enough to perform in on-and-off-highway environments,” said Sanjay Nayakwadi, director of product strategy at Bridgestone Americas. “The Firestone FS818 tire does just that, enabling fleets to haul higher payloads and tackle challenging service environments.”
Other features of the tire include block sipes for better grip on wet roads, four steel belts to extend casing life and sidewall protector ribs to fight against wear and damage, Bridgestone said.
The tire is available in sizes 385/65R22.5, 425/65R22.5 and 445/65R22.5.
