Bridgestone on Tuesday introduced its M863 all-position radial tire for on- and off-highway fleets. The new Bridgestone M863 provides a simple solution to equip tough trucks, concrete mixers, dump trucks, construction fleets, logging trucks and more with a product proven to deliver more miles per tire1.
The 4-belt construction on the M863 delivers exceptional durability and a premium casing for maximum retreadability, the company said. Other key features of the M863 lineup include stone rejector platforms that help prevent trapped stones from pushing deeper into tread grooves and piercing belt layer, damaging and exposing belts to rust; block sipes that promote traction by slicing through water for a solid grip on wet roads; stabilizing tie bars that help reduce block squirm to fight irregular wear and extend tread life; and wide flow-through grooves that evacuate water effectively for solid wet traction.
The Bridgestone M863 is currently available in four sizes: 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 315/80R22.5, and 12R22.5, with more sizes expected to become available in 2023.
