Bridgestone comes out with severe-duty wide-base tire

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Bridgestone has introduced a new rib-type all-position tire aimed at severe-service and on/off-highway applications.



NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Bridgestone has introduced a new rib-type all-position tire aimed at severe-service and on/off-highway applications.

The M854 wide-base radial tire is ideal for construction, refuse, dump, mixer, bulk and logging applications, the company says.

“Construction, logging and refuse fleets travel on loose terrain and uneven surfaces, which requires a specially designed tire to withstand these demands,” said Matt Loos, director of truck and bus marketing, Bridgestone Commercial Solutions. “The M854 features advanced construction providing long mileage, aggressive traction and strong casing durability. A wide footprint maximizes tire grip, while cap/base compounding and optimized casing construction improve overall occurrence of irregular wear, extending original tread life.”

The Bridgestone M854 comes in three sizes in the US and Canada. The 425/65R22.5 is available now. The 385/65R22.5 and 445/65R22.5 will be available later this year. More info is available at www.bridgestonetrucktires.com.
