Bridgestone Americas Inc. has expanded its lineup of Firestone brand medium truck tires with the introduction of the Firestone FD692. The SmartWay-verified tire features 400% more biting edges that its predecessor and has earned 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake certification.
Other features include a high-rigidity tread pattern to control tread block movement for even wear and reduced rolling resistance; a proprietary sidewall technology and design to limit heat loss, enhance fuel economy and reduce overall tire weight without sacrificing durability; a stone rejector platform to boost the retreadability of its casing; and more.
“Bridgestone is committed to making mobility more efficient for fleets, which is why we are launching the new Firestone FD692 fuel-efficient drive tire to help fleets capitalize on the full performance potential of their valuable tire assets,” says Ben Johnson, marketing director, truck and bus radial tires, U.S. and Canada, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. “This new tire is uniquely designed with the latest technological advancements to achieve the long-lasting wear, efficiency and dependability that hard-working fleets demand from their tires.”
The Firestone FD692 is available in four sizes in both the United States and Canada.
