Bridgestone Adds Sizes to Several Consumer Tire Lines
By the end of the third quarter, Bridgestone Americas Inc. will have added more than 90 sizes to several passenger and light truck tire lines.
The Firestone Destination LE3 all-season light truck tire received 64 new sizes during the first quarter. Two additional sizes will be introduced next week.
Also during the first quarter, the Firestone Destination X/T all-terrain light truck/SUV tire received eight new sizes that provide “coverage for larger rim diameter fitments,” according to Bridgestone officials.
The Bridgestone Blizzak LM005 winter tire received two new sizes this month. Six more sizes will be introduced on July 1.
Also on that date, Bridgestone will add one size to its Transforce CV commercial van tire and another size to its Winterforce CV commercial van tire.
In addition, during the third quarter, Bridgestone plans to add six sizes to its Firestone Firehawk pursuit tire and five sizes to the Firestone Pursuit AWT line. The additions will bolster “the range for law enforcement fleet customers.”
