Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions (BBTS) is adding two sizes to its lineup of Bridgestone R250 ED all-position radial tires. Aimed at regional and pickup-and-delivery fleets, the tires are said to offer better protection from the stresses of curbing, tread cuts and impacts. The new sizes are 255/70R22.5 and 275/70R22.5.
Vehicles in these applications – such as moving vans, auto haulers, and others — often see the need for tight cornering, so this tire is designed to provide sidewall protection from twisting, scraping and scrubbing, as well as tread protection from cutting and chipping.
The R250 ED all-position tire is made from an extra-heavy-duty cut- and chip-resistant compound and features sidewall protector ribs for enhanced performance in severe on-highway, moderate on/off-highway and mixed service, says BBTS. Five ribs with four wide, straight grooves are designed to produce precise handling and excellent traction, the company adds.
