Bridgestone Americas Off Road Tire Sales Division says its new V-Steel J-Traction (VJT) radial off-road tire for loaders features a computer-optimized center block that minimizes vibration levels to create improved operator comfort and stability. Other features include extended tire life through improved wear resistance, enhanced sidewall design for improved cut resistance, and a specialized self-cleaning tread design and non-directional tread pattern. The tire is available in three sizes — 20.5R25, 23.5R25, and 26.5R25 — with 17.5R25 and 29.5R25 coming soon.
