Bridgestone Expands Product Line for Underground Mining

Bridgestone has announced the VSMS2 tire for underground mining, landfill and salvage environments.

Bridgestone Americas, Inc. has expanded its off-the-road (OTR) product portfolio to include a new size of the Bridgestone VSMS2 tire. The tire is now available in size 29.5R25 in the U.S. and Canada. Designed for underground mining, landfill and salvage environments, the Bridgestone VSMS2 tire delivers a 30% decrease in the frequency of sidewall cuts, improving the tire’s overall lifecycle performance by five percent.

“The Bridgestone VSMS2 is the ideal tire for underground mining operations, and the new 29.5R25 size completes our offering to give more customers access to trusted, heavy-duty, off-the-road performance,” said Rob Seibert, director of marketing of off-the-road tires for Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations’ commercial group. “This is the latest initiative in our longstanding commitment and efforts to provide off-the-road customers with innovative products, technologies and services that improve overall productivity and lower the total cost of tire ownership.”

Key features of the Bridgestone VSMS2 tire include:

  • Deeper tread pattern to provide longer wear and protection in severe operating environments
  • Heavy duty radial casing design for extended tire life
  • A tread wear indicator allowing for easy visual recognition of the depth of wear

The Bridgestone VSMS2 tire is available in 17.5R25, 26.5R25, 29.5R25 and 29.5R29 sizes in the U.S. and Canada. The Bridgestone VSMS2 tire complements the company’s existing underground hard rock offering of products and solutions. To learn more about the Bridgestone VSMS2 tire, click here.
