Bridgestone Commercial Solutions has introduced a new rib-type, all-position tire for fleets running severe duty in on- and off-highway applications. The M854 is ideal for the construction and refuse markets, the company said, for fleets operating dump trucks, cement mixers, bulk carrier equipment and logging vehicles among others.

“Construction, logging and refuse fleets travel on loose terrain and uneven surfaces, which requires a specially designed tire to withstand these demands,” said Matt Loos, director of Truck & Bus marketing, Bridgestone Commercial Solutions. “The M854 features advanced construction providing long mileage, aggressive traction and strong casing durability. A wide footprint maximizes tire grip, while cap/base compounding and optimized casing construction improve overall occurrence of irregular wear, extending original tread life.”

The M854 features and aggressive tread pattern for improved traction, wide tread design to offer fleets more payload capacity while still providing grip and traction without digging into the ground, and special compounding to extend tire life and resist cuts, chips, tearing and irregular wear.

The Bridgestone M854 comes in three sizes in the U.S. and Canada. The 425/65R22.5 is available now. The 385/65R22.5 and 445/65R22.5 will be available later this year.
