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:

385/65R22.5 425/65R22.5 445/65R22.5
