New rugged on/off tire range launched by Firestone

LinkedIn +

A brand-new line-up of extremely robust tires for combined on- and off-road applications has been developed by Firestone. The new FS833 Steer, FD833 Drive and FT833 Trailer tires are said to provide high levels of durability and good grip over a wide range of tough terrain.

The new tires feature advanced technologies such as built-in tie bars, which provide increased block stiffness and minimized heel and toe wear. This increases the durability of the tire and reduces noise. They are also built with a slim bead to reduce bead filler volume. As a consequence, the tire’s weight is reduced. A robust construction makes these tires ideal for re-grooving and retreading.
