Firestone FD694 drive tire for longhaul and regional applications

by Today's Trucking

Bridgestone Americas has introduced the Firestone FD694 drive tire, which it says is designed for exceptional mileage in both longhaul and regional applications.

“Longhaul and regional trucking fleets face a unique set of challenges: varied weather patterns, unpredictable roadways and pressure to efficiently deliver goods on time,” said Chris Tavares, executive director, commercial marketing, Bridgestone Americas. “With the FD694, we set out to build a tire that offers more of everything for fleets of any size. The FD694 is designed to work harder to deliver more wear resistance, more durability, and more traction in all conditions, all with the trusted Firestone brand.”

Features include: a deep and high rigidity treat pattern with solid shoulder design for long, even wear; a wear-resistant tread compound; a cap/base compound for improved retreadability; a wide shoulder and center grooves for better grip; and a dependable casing that fights irregular wear and rejects stones.

The Firestone FD694 is currently available in a 295/75R22.5 size and will soon be available in three additional sizes: 11R22.5, 11R24.5, and 285/75R24.5.
