Bridgestone Americas Inc. has rolled out a new, all-position truck tire that is designed to provide “optimal performance in wet weather conditions,” according to Bridgestone officials.
“Engineered for pickup and delivery service applications, the Bridgestone M704 tire is uniquely suited for the steer and drive axle positions.”
The tire features a deep, 20/32-inch tread for long wear life and a tread pattern designed for excellent wet traction. It also contains wide, flow-through tread grooves to expel water and other features. In addition, the Bridgestone M704 boasts 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake certification.
“Fleets that operate in the regional pickup and delivery service sector need tires that can handle the harsh conditions of city streets, especially in challenging weather conditions where traction is critical,” says Ben Johnson, director of marketing, truck and bus radial tires, U.S. and Canada, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations.
“The Bridgestone M704 tire is specially designed to tackle difficult hauling environments, delivering the performance and wear life that these fleets need to keep our country moving every day.”
The tire is now available in the United States and Canada in size 225/70R19.5, with an N speed rating.
