Bridgestone SA Introduces ‘Super’ Range of Truck Tyres

(Douglasdale, South Africa/S.A. Treads) Bridgestone South Africa has introduced a new ‘Super’ range of the company’s well known Firestone HP3000, PSD3000 and UT3000 steel cord radial truck tyres.

According to Bridgestone SA vice president of sales and marketing, Johnny Kuroki, the new range is much improved, despite the fact that there is no change in external appearance. Allegedly, the changes are the result of ongoing research and development and the range incorporates Bridgestone’s latest design and manufacturing technology.

Features include: a new tread compound designed to give higher mileage, while the new cap/bead construction is said to add resistance to cuts and chipping; the bead features high turn-up chafer for improved bead durability. The new HP3000, PSD3000 and UT3000 ‘Super’ tyres are all available in 315/80R22.5 and 12R22.5 sizes.
