DES MOINES, Iowa (May 29, 2002) — Bridgestone/Firestone's Forestry Tire Division has introduced what it's calling the industry's first tubeless LS-2 tire, a tubeless version of its Forestry Special Severe Service forestry tire.
The tubeless Severe Service features CRC (cut-resistant compound) to resist snags and tears from the forest floor. The tire is designed with a strengthened bead package and high-tech inner liner for tubeless construction, BFS said.
Available in 30.5L-32 18-ply CRC Severe Service, the new tire offers a state-of-the-art inner liner for tubeless construction, an improved bead package for additional strength and reduced slippage, as well as an increased ply rating allowing for heavier loads, the company said.
“Firestone has always sought to offer innovative solutions to the forestry industry,” said Ralph Burchfield, Firestone Agricultural Tire Division president. “We are proud to be the first to offer a tubeless forestry tire specifically designed to increase performance, reduce cost, and remove unnecessary hassles.”
