Bridgestone Commercial Solutions, a division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, has launched the M853, a new on/off highway all-position radial for regional hauls that combines wear resistance with extra load capacity for longer service.
An enhanced pattern, designed with interlocking multi-edge blocks, digs deeper for more solid traction on both worksites and highways.

"The M853 is the tire for haulers who must travel on a variety of terrain to get the job done," says Scott Damon, vice president, marketing, BCS. "The technologies in this product not only offer the durability needed to move repeatedly between asphalt, gravel and dirt, but the design also protects the casing to ultimately provide a longer lasting, retreadable tire - which can reduce downtime and help save money over the life of the tire."

The M853 features a number of tread enhancements including an enhanced pattern, designed with interlocking multi-edge blocks, to dig deeper for more solid traction on both worksites and highways. Also, tie bars link tread blocks together to combat heel-and-toe wear. A unique shoulder design helps combat irregular wear for longer tread life, and stone rejector platforms help repel stones that can damage casings.

The M853's four steel belts, a steel body ply and thick sidewalls that help protect the casing from worksite damage, is designed for durability and retreadability.

The M853 replaces the M850 and is currently available in two sizes, 11R22.5 and 11R24.5, both in a "H" load rating. A third size, 12R22.5 ("H" load rating), will be available in the fourth quarter of 2012.
