Bridgestone Americas introduced the M863 all-position radial tire designed for on- and off-highway fleets. Now, on-and off-highway fleets can utilize the same product in several different positions when a more aggressive tread is not needed. Bridgestone noted that the 4-belt construction on the M863 delivers enhanced durability and a premium casing for maximum retreadability.
According to Bridgestone, the new M863 tire provides more miles per tire to equip these tough trucks and more:
- Concrete mixers.
- Dump trucks.
- Construction fleets.
- Logging trucks.
“When designing the Bridgestone M863, our goal was to produce an all-position tire without trading off its durability, retreadability, or performance on- and off-highway,” said Steve Hoeft, president, Commercial Truck Group, Bridgestone Americas. “We believe the versatility of theM863 will maximum performance and efficiency for fleets.”
