Bridgestone Corp.'s Greatec wide-based super single truck tire may be available in the United States as soon as this June or July.

"We've been extremely limited by capacity," Bridgestone/Firestone Engineering Manager for Commercial Products Guy Walenga told dealers this morning at the 2003 Tire Industry Association World Tire Expo.

"There will be limited production available."

The Greatec super single is currently being used in Europe, according to Walenga.

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. plans to roll out new super singles in the U.S. before the end of the year.

Continental Tire North America Inc. says its super single tire should be ready for the domestic market by 2005.
