Firestone’s New On/Off-Highway Drive is ‘Aggressive’

The new Firestone FD835 On/Off-Highway drive is designed to deliver superior traction and exceptional removal mileage in severe-service applications.

The tiremaker says its aggressive drive is ideal for rugged applications in logging, construction, mining, refuse or oil field service.

The FD835, the first of a new generation of Firestone on/off-highway tires, has an aggressive block tread pattern for superior traction both on and off the highway. Angled sipes positioned in each block cut through rain for solid wet-surface handling. An extra-deep open shoulder design provides outstanding traction on soft surfaces, including mud and snow, according to Firestone.

With a tread over one full inch deep, the FD835 offers exceptional removal mileage. Ultra-tough tread compounds combat cuts, chips, chunks and tears for long tread life – even in severe service, the company said.

The new FD835 is available in the 11R24.5 size with an H load rating, and is usable to 65 mph.  For more information, visit www.Firestonetrucktires.com. (Tire Review/Akron)
