Bridgestone Americas, Inc. has expanded its Firestone commercial truck tire portfolio with the launch of the Firestone FD711 drive tire.
Engineered for durable, long-lasting performance in high-scrub and high-traction applications, the Firestone FD711 tire offers grip, long wear and enhanced retread capability, Firestone said in a press release. The tire is recommended for a wide range of applications including long and regional haul service, pickup-and-delivery service and light-to-moderate on/off-highway environments.
“At Bridgestone, we strive to offer a diverse range of products to meet the unique and evolving needs of our customers,” said Ed Emch, brand manager for Firestone and Dayton, commercial group for the U.S. and Canada Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. “We recognized long and regional haul fleets need an aggressive, durable tire that provides solid grip in rain, mud and snow. The Firestone FD711 tire provides customers with a reliable tire solution backed by a trusted brand.”
Key features of the Firestone FD711 tire include:
- Open shoulder design and aggressive tread blocks to provide exceptional traction and grip.
- Staggered tread block design and tough tread compound to provide wear and abrasion resistance.
- Slow wearing cap compound with a cool-running base to protect the tire’s casing from damaging heat.
- Four-belt construction to combat casing penetration for improved durability and retreading.
