Firestone drive tire built for severe service
Mar 1, 2009 12:00 PM
The new Firestone FD835 On/Off-Highway drive tire is designed to deliver superior traction and exceptional removal mileage in severe-service applications. The aggressive drive tire is ideal for rugged applications in logging, construction, mining, refuse, or oilfield service.
First of a new generation of Firestone on/off-highway tires, the FD835 has an aggressive block tread pattern for superior traction both on and off the highway. Thirsty angled sipes positioned in each block cut through rain for solid wet-surface handling. An extra-deep open shoulder design provides outstanding traction on soft surfaces, including mud and snow.
With a tread more than one inch deep, the FD835 offers exceptional removal mileage. This block radial 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.
To enhance casing life, FD835 uses computer-designed groove shapes to help prevent trapped stones from pushing into the tread grooves and piercing the belt layer.
The FD835 is available in the 11R24.5 size with an “H” load rating, and is usable to 65 mph. For more information, visit www.Firestonetrucktires.com.
