The tire’s wide-base design is designed for higher payloads and improved flotation. It features special tread compounds to help resist cuts, chips, tearing and irregular wear.
The Firestone FS818 is designed with a deep, self-cleaning tread pattern for aggressive traction and long original mileage. Stone rejector platforms in every groove offer durability.

“We recognized a need for a durable, hardworking tire that is versatile enough to perform in on-and-off-highway environments,” says Sanjay Nayakwadi, director of product strategy for Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC. “The Firestone FS818 tire does just that, enabling fleets to haul higher payloads and tackle challenging service environments.”

Key features of the Firestone FS818 tire include:

block sipes to slice through water and provide solid grip on wet roads;
four steel belts to extend casing life while providing protection from cuts and punctures;
sidewall protector ribs to fight against cuts, snags and abrasions; and
block design and edges to perform in on/off highway environments.
The Firestone FS818 tire is available in these sizes:

Kenda Adds New LT Tire to Klever Line

M-KendaKleverHTImage-LR-1.jpg

Kenda USA has added a value-priced light truck tire for highway driving to its Klever line. The new Kenda Klever H/T2 KR600 is available to order in 14 sizes with anticipated delivery in the third quarter.

The Klever H/T2 has a 50,000 mileage warranty for LTR sizes and a 60,000 mileage warranty for P-metric.

The KR600 features a computer optimized footprint for excellent wear and handling under multiple load conditions as well as strong shoulder blocks that enhance handling and cornering stability, according to Kenda. Snow sipes and increased lateral groove densities improve traction performance, and driving stability in wet and snow conditions and wide circumferential groove widths improves hydroplaning and wet traction.

The Klever H/T2 was developed at the new Kenda American Technical Center in Green, Ohio.

The highway tire is designed for light truck vehicle platforms and SUVs, complementing the recently introduced Klever S/T KR52 which is designed for higher speed-rated CUV and SUV vehicles.

“Kenda successfully benchmarked the Klever H/T2 against the top Tier 1 and Tier 2 tires to show our customers that value is truly providing a great tire for a good price,” says Brandon Stotsenburg, director of business development. “Dealers can confidently replace OE tires with the Klever H/T2.”

He says Kenda expects to expand the line over the next 18 months with additional LT and P-metric sizes to match 16- to 20-inch sizes in the segment.

The sizes available to order are:

* LT215/85R16;
* LT225/75R16;
* LT235/80R17;
* LT235/85R16;
* LT245/70R17;
* LT245/75R16;
* LT245/75R17;
* LT265/70R17;
* LT265/75R16;
* LT275/65R18;
* LT275/65R20;
* LT275/70R18;
* P265/70R16; and
* P265/70R17.

Continental Introduces New Fuel Efficient Trailer Tire

Continental Tire the Americas LLC announced the launch of the Conti EcoPlus HT3, the first trailer tire in a new truck tire generation for the long haul goods sector.

The premium tire for the trailing axle has been developed for maximum cost effectiveness, incorporating greater fuel efficiency, long service life and retread ability.
conti trailer
The pyramid-shaped triangular bars in the base of these tread grooves stabilize the new Conti EcoPlus HT3 against flexing in the tread, while its closed ribs and continuous shoulder provide optimal straight line tracking. These design features add stability and prevent distortion, which is especially demanding for maneuvering tasks typical for trailers, while giving a wider contact surface area for better rolling resistance.

The Conti EcoPlus HT3’s tread compound is also optimized for rolling resistance in a two-layer construction. The cap compound of the tread ensures optimal contact with the road surface for long service life, while the special compound of the tread base on the four-layer triangular belt casing reduces the heat generation in the crown for maximum reduction in rolling resistance.

Finally, Continental engineers added the new Fuel Saving Edge that relocates the rubber away from belt edges, where it’s most susceptible to hysteresis and heat buildup, and moves it to the center ribs where it’s needed for longer mileage.

Conti EcoPlus HT3 is now available in the North American markets in sizes 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 285/75R24.5 and 295/75R22.5, load range G and in 255/75R22.5 load range H.

Your Next Tire has all your trailer tire needs, weather your trailer has 13 inch tires all the way up to semis hauling goods across America. Give us a call at 1-888-513-8473 or check out our website http://www.yournexttire.com
