Firestone Adds New Sizes to FS560 Plus Lineup
August 2008, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions is adding six new sizes to its lineup of Firestone FS560 Plus tough-wearing steers for P&D and local hauling applications.
Fleets operating in short-haul or urban applications now have more sizes to choose from, including 9R22.5 and 10R22.5 in "F" load ranges, 10R22.5 in "G" load range, and 255/70R22.5, 275/70R22.5 and 215/75R17.5 low profile sizes all in "H" load ranges. The 215/75R17.5 size will be available fourth quarter. All the other sizes are available now.
The Firestone FS560 Plus has a deep tread for long original mileage with a solid shoulder design to help fight the turning and maneuvering scrub forces that short hauls and urban usage inflict on tires. Multiple cross-rib sipes and wide, deep "flow-through" grooves evacuate water efficiently from the footprint for precise traction, even on rain-slick city streets.
The FS560 Plus has four full steel belts, an all-steel casing ply, and a special, two-layer tread that combines a slow-wearing top compound with a layer beneath that helps insulate the casing from damaging heat.
