Bridgestone on Thursday, Aug. 25, introduced two new truck tires and a wide-based trailer tire at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas.

The M799 mixed-service drive tire – available in sizes 11R22.5, 11R24.5 and 12R22.5 – is suited mostly for on-highway service but also can be used for occasional gravel applications. The tire has an all-steel casing for added durability and retreadability, while a stone-rejecting platform helps prevent rocks from being trapped in the tread and drilling into belts. Thick ribs help protect casings from cuts and abrasions.

The M770 on-highway drive-axle radial – now available in size 295/75R22.5 and later in sizes 285/75R24.5, 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 – has a groove and block shape to help fight lug base cracking and tearing, while a stone-rejecting platform in all grooves helps prevent stone trapping for added retreadability.

The Greatec R125A wide-base trailer radial has a belt system designed to maintain casing shape. A wide belt is designed to fight irregular wear, while a Waved Belt design helps hold the tread flat against the road. The tire also features the company’s Equalizer Rib and Defense Groove designs to help fight irregular wear.
