Bridgestone Commercial Solutions says the new Bridgestone R244 All-Position Steer Radial Tire meets the demands of dump trucks and concrete mixer truck fleets which spend a higher percentage of their miles in on-highway use.
“Most dump and concrete trucks spend more time on interstate highways where irregular wear and ride are more important, than off-highway construction sites,” says Bert Jones, manager, Product Marketing, TBR, Retread and OTR, Bridgestone Commercial Solutions.
Additional features of the Bridgestone R244 include a rib-type pattern to help deliver a smoother ride. The wide-base design allows vehicles to haul more, and special tread compounds provide resistance to irregular wear, extending life and reducing cost per mile
Sidewall protector ribs protect the casing from curbing damage, plus cuts and abrasions. If one side wears away, simply flip the tire over for continued protection.
The Bridgestone R244 comes in three sizes in the U.S. and Canada. The 425/65R22.5 is available now. The 385/65R22.5 and 445/65R22.5 will be available later this year.
