A new version of Firestone’s regional on-road truck tire range has been launched, which the company says has been engineered to reduce total cost of ownership and environmental footprint for fleet operators. The new FS424, FD624 and FT524 incorporate Bridgestone’s Enliten technology and are suitable for fitment to steer, drive and trailer axles.
Compared to its predecessor, the latest tire range offers a 20% improvement in performance, and a 10% percent reduction in cost per kilometer. Rolling resistance has been lowered by 15% to further improve fuel consumption.
Bridgestone’s Enliten tire technology has been used for the first time in a Firestone regional on-road tire range, intending to optimize total cost of ownership for truck fleets and accelerate their sustainability journey.
“Truck fleets need tires that combine year-round reliability with a reduced total cost of ownership – especially in today’s climate,” said Waqqas Ahmad, commercial sales director at Bridgestone EMIA. “Leveraging Enliten for the first time, we’ve directly addressed these real-world customer needs to develop a new Firestone truck tire range that aims to become the best choice in the mid-segment. Available in a wide range of sizes, the FS424, FD624 and FT524 are a landmark range for both the Firestone brand and cost-conscious fleets looking for the smart tire choice.”
With competitive wet grip labels and 3PMSF marking, Firestone’s latest regional truck tire range will be available in six additional sizes as part of an expanded line-up. The first sizes will arrive on the market this month, and the remaining will follow over the course of 2024 and will replace the current Firestone Plus line-up.
