Bridgestone M775 can handle aggression
Aug 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire LLC (BFNT) is offering fleets in the United States the new Bridgestone M775 on/off-highway drive radial. Ideal in severe-service applications, this drive delivers superior traction and removal mileage while being usable at highway speeds to 65 mph.
The specially designed aggressive block tread and open shoulder design digs into soft surfaces, such as mud and snow, for superior traction. Thirsty angled block sipes enhance wet traction by breaking up pocketed water for a solid grip on wet surfaces. The tread is more than one full inch deep, and tough tread compounds combat lug base cracking.
To enhance casing life, M775 uses stone rejector platforms and computer-designed groove shapes to help prevent trapped stones from pushing into the tread grooves and piercing the belt layer.
The on/off-highway M775 incorporates four steel belts and an all-steel casing so it can be retreaded for any axle position. Split belt construction helps the casing resist cuts and punctures by enveloping debris.
The new M775 is offered in three sizes: 11R22.5, 12R22.5, and 11R24.5 in “H” load ranges for a total load capacity of more than 24,000 lb per axle in dual fitments.
