The new Bridgestone R250 ED all-position radial tire is designed for regional and pickup-and-delivery fleets.
MUSCATINE, Iowa — Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions (BBTS) is adding two sizes to its line-up of Bridgestone R250 ED all-position radial tires. The new 255/70R22.5 and 275/70R22.5 tire sizes are designed for regional and pickup-and-delivery fleets seeking better protection from the stresses of curbing, tread cuts and impacts. These, and other sizes, are available from a Bridgestone commercial tire dealer or truck stop.
“The R250 ED is suitable for use by pickup-and-delivery fleets, moving vans, auto haulers and rural school bus fleets. As these vehicles often experience tight cornering, this tire is designed to provide sidewall protection from twisting, scraping and scrubbing, and tread protection from cutting and chipping,” says Guy Walenga, director of engineering, commercial products and technologies for Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire, LLC. “The addition of these new sizes allows us to better serve regional and pickup-and-delivery fleets in high-scrub urban or mild on/off highway environments, particularly for those using trailers.”
The R250 ED all-position tire is made from an extra-duty cut- and chip-resistant compound and features sidewall protector ribs designed for enhanced performance in severe on-highway, moderate on/off-highway and mixed service. Five ribs with four wide, straight grooves are designed to produce precise handling and excellent traction.
