Aggressive Bridgestone M775 Drive Now Available
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 5, 2008) Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire, LLC (BFNT) is now offering fleets in the U.S. the new Bridgestone M775 on/off-highway drive radial, a tire very popular with logging and oil field service fleets in Canada. Ideal in severe-service applications, this aggressive drive delivers superior traction and exceptional 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.
With a tread over one full inch deep, the M775 offers more than exceptional tire life. Tough tread compounds combat lug base cracking, a common problem with other ultra-deep drive radials.
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, which can damage belts and expose them to rust.
The ultra-durable 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, which reduces belt damage for longer tire life and enhanced retreadability.
The new M775 is available in three sizes: 11R22.5, 12R22.5 and 11R24.5 in Hâ€ load ranges for a total load capacity of over 24,000 lb per axle in dual fitments.
