Updated Jan 8, 2014

Bridgestone R244 All-Position Steer Radial TireBridgestone’s R244 All-Position Steer Radial Tire is designed for dump trucks and concrete mixer fleets that spend a higher percentage of their miles in on-highway use.

Designed with a wide-base ribbed steer pattern, the tire features special tread compounds to help provide resistance to irregular wear, while sidewall protector ribs help protect the casing from curbing damage, cuts and abrasions.

The tire now is available in size 425/65R22.5, with sizes 385/65R22.5 and 445/65R22.5 set for release later this year.

Bridgestone also recently launched the Firestone DuraLoad PT L5S bias tire, designed for severe loader service, that features the same casing construction as the company’s DuraLoad DT and DuraLoad SDT. For more information, go to
