Bridgestone has its first tire for auto haulers

Posted on December 2, 2013

Bridgestone Commercial Solutions, a business unit of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC, has introduced its first tire designed for long- and regional-haul auto-haul transportation vehicles in the U.S. and Canadian market, the Bridgestone M749 drive radial tire.

“The M749 comes in a new size unique to the Bridgestone lineup, 295/60R22.5,” says Bert Jones, manager, product marketing, TBR, Retread and OTR.

“This new product is built to withstand the carrying capacity demands of the auto-haul segment while also maintaining the maximum sustained speed necessary when traveling long stretches of highway.”

Additional features of the Bridgestone M749 include:

* Patented WavedBelt design to minimize belt stress at the edges and preserve casing durability and reduce casing growth

* Tie bars to control movement of the shoulder tread block for low rolling resistance and long, even wear

* Multiple cross-rib sipes to improve traction by slicing through water for a solid grip on wet roads

* Flexible groove fence partitions in the tire groove to dampen noise production.

The Bridgestone M749 is available today in the U.S. and Canada.
