Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions (BBTS) is adding six sizes to its Firestone FS560 PLUS steer tire line.

"Fleets operating in short-haul or urban applications now have more sizes to choose from, including 9R22.5 and 10R22.5 in F load ranges, 10R22.5 in G load range, and 255/70R22.5, 275/70R22.5 and 215/75R17.5 low profile sizes, all in H load ranges," say BBTS officials.

Size 215/75R17.5 will be available during the fourth quarter.

The Firestone FS560 PLUS contains a deep tread for long original mileage, multiple cross-rib sipes, deep "flow-through" grooves and other features.
