Bridgestone Adds New Steer Axle Radial

Bridgestone Americas has launched the Bridgestone R287A, a steer axle radial that has already been approved for use on EPA SmartWay-certified equipment, and is California Air Resources Board compliant.

The tire made its debut at this week’s Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky.
The  features a refined Side Groove structure that helps prevent shoulder edge wear from spreading to the ribs, the tiremaker said. The inside of the groove is engineered to prevent stress cracking, while the Equalizer Rib feature promotes uniform rib wear and higher removal mileage by reducing rib edge wear.
In addition, the 16/32nd-inch tread depth tire uses an enhanced cap/base compound and design for improved mileage. The cap compound is formulated to wear slowly, fight irregular wear and run cooler, while the base compound helps control tread heat for enhanced retreadability.
The casing incorporates four full steel belts and an all-steel casing ply, and is designed to minimize heat buildup for long life and retreadability, the company claimed.
