Bridgestone/Firestone launched the Bridgestone M850 on/off-highway radial for the construction market during the 2005 ConExpo-Con/Agg show.
Engineered to promote long tread life for hauling equipment, the M850 has a 24/32-inch tread depth for long mileage and a specially designed block/rib tread pattern for long, even wear, BFS said.
Features include a bigger footprint for even distribution on a larger area and groove-bottom platforms to help prevent trapped stones from pushing into the tread grooves and piercing the belt layer.
The tire also comes with special tread compounds that offer resistance to road debris and tie bars to link tread blocks.
The tire is available in sizes 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 with an H load rating.
