Bridgestone’s new M863 brings performance to all positions
Bridgestone has introduced the M863 all-position radial tire for on- and off-highway fleets. The company says the new tire is well suited for concrete mixer, dump, construction, logging and other applications and will deliver excellent performance and durability.
“When designing the Bridgestone M863, our goal was to produce an all-position tire without trading off its durability, retreadability, or performance on- and off-highway,” said Steve Hoeft, president, Commercial Truck Group, Bridgestone Americas. “We believe the versatility of the M863 will maximum performance and efficiency for fleets.”
The new all-position tire allows fleets to use it in different positions when a more aggressive tread isn’t required. It features: a premium casing for retreadability; stone rejector platforms; block sipes for better traction; stabilizing tie bars to fight irregular wear; and wide flow-through grooves to evacuate water.
The M863 is available in sizes: 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 315/80R22.5, and 12R22.5, with more sizes expected to become available in 2023.
