Bridgestone has released the Firestone FS561 radial tire for steering application on regional and pickup and delivery use.
The FS561 is designed to reduce susceptibility to stone retention and drilling, which Bridgestone says are common occurrences in these types of high-scrub applications.
The FS561 features a rugged casing with sidewall protector ribs for resistance to cuts, snags and abrasions from curbing and impacts.
It has stone rejectors in center grooves to reduce susceptibility to stone retention and drilling, and its sidewall is designed to reduce tire weight and improve fuel economy while remaining durable.
The Firestone FS561 295/75R22.5 and 11R22.5 are available in the U.S. and Canada.
