MISSISSAUGA, Ontario (May 15, 2014) — Private brand marketer Husky Tire Corp. reports its Blacklion BF155 ST and BF156 ST regional and premium steer-axle truck tires have achieved EPA SmartWay verification as low rolling-resistance tires.

The Blacklion radial truck tire lineup includes one other SmartWay-verified tire, the BT166 FST trailer tire. FST stands for Fuel Saving Technology, the Blacklion designation for reduced rolling resistance products.

The BF155 ST is available in six sizes — 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 12R22.5, 285/75R24.5, 295/75R22.5 and 315/80R22.5 — while the BF156 ST comes in four sizes, 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 285/75R24.5 and 295/75R22.5.
