Bridgestone has new radial tire for mining

Posted on October 24, 2013

Bridgestone Commercial Solutions, a business of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC, has introduced the V-Steel Super Deep Rock (VSDR) premium radial tire in two sizes for mining and waste operations.

Bridgestone says the new tire has an improved tread design and more tread volume for long life. It comes in a 20.5R25 1* rating and in a 2* rating for loaders and dozers.

“We took the popular V-Steel D-Lug (VSDL) off-the-road radial tire and improved tread wear capability,"  says Bert Jones, manager, product marketing, TBR, retread and OTR.

"When compared to the VSDL, the tread wear of the new VSDR improves up to six percent, depending upon application.”

The 1* rating is designed for use on rock surfaces found in open pits and quarries, as well as paved surfaces for the demands of waste applications. The 2* rating is ideal for use in underground operations.

The company says multi-ply steel belts and a unique shape help protect tread and sidewall from cuts. Extra-deep tread helps resist cuts and impacts for long life.
