Bridgestone launches wide-base radial tire for urban applications

LinkedIn +

Bridgestone Americas has released the Greatec M847 wide-base radial all-position tire. It has been developed to deliver durability and long service life for fleets in urban applications.

The manufacturer has redesigned the tire with deeper grooves in the tread and a compound developed specifically for urban use to provide good wear characteristics and a low rolling resistance. Stone rejector platforms and wide shoulder grooves help prevent groove cracking and stone damage to belts, thus improving retreadability.

The Greatec M847 can be paired with Bridgestone Bandag retreads to reduce operating costs and the tire’s overall environmental impact, maximizing fleet uptime and sustainability. To improve retreadability, Bridgestone’s latest all-position tire features Waved Belt technology and a Turn In Ply design to promote wear-out performance and casing durability.

“Fleets that operate in high-scrub, urban areas need reliable tires to keep up with the pace of their business while also cutting their cost per mile,” said Chris Tavares, executive director of commercial marketing at Bridgestone Americas. “Our team of engineers at Bridgestone designed the Greatec M847 with this in mind and have developed an innovative tire with unwavering performance and exceptional longevity.”

The Bridgestone Greatec M847 tire is available in size 455/55R22.5.
