Bridgestone debuts heavy-duty urban-use tires

Updated May 22, 2013

Bridgestone Commercial Solutions’ latest tires for heavy-duty urban use – the Greatec M845 Wide-Base Radial and M860A High-Scrub All-Position Radial – leverage technologies to meet the high demands of urban environments.

The M860A – engineered for refuse, high-scrub and short-haul applications – reflects improvements made to the M860 and features a compound designed to improve wear performance leading to longer life; it also is engineered with a wider belt package designed to enhance casing durability, making it more retreadable and extending casing asset life.

The wide-base Greatec M845 – engineered for high-traction and high-scrub applications – supports heavier loads, reducing the number of trips required, and features the company’s next-generation WavedBelt technology to help combat irregular shoulder wear; the tire now is available in size 455/55R22.5.
