BFNT designs concept tire for Hummer

Jan. 14, 2008

Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire LLC (BFNT) has designed a 35-inch tall Dueler concept tire for the Hummer HX, a concept vehicle.

The tire is mounted to the Hummer concept’s 20-inch rims and contains a deep-skid directional tread pattern with large, stiff lugs that stretch half-way down the sidewall.

"Conceptual programs allow our designers to extend beyond the boundaries of contemporary thinking," says Michael Martini, President, Consumer OE Tire Sales, BFNT.
