NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Bridgestone Americas Inc. is expanding its Dueler light truck tire line with a heavy-duty offering for pickup trucks.
The Bridgestone Dueler H/T 685 tire is designed for towing and hauling heavy loads during all seasons, the company said.
"The Bridgestone Dueler H/T 685 tire is a great addition to our best-in-class Dueler tire line," said Erik Seidel, president, consumer replacement tire sales, U.S. and Canada.
"This new tire will combine several original equipment fitments into one go-to tire, allowing our dealers to capture more first and second replacement tire sales in the heavy-duty pickup truck segment."
The tire is built with heavy-duty steel belts and a two-ply polyester construction; a new tread-to-road contact footprint that allows it to adapt to the load and promotes even treadwear; and a tread pattern with wide grooves to channel water away from the tire and help resist hydroplaning in wet conditions, Bridgestone said.
The tire comes with a 50,000-mile limited treadwear warranty and is available in 17 sizes to fit 96 percent of the pickup trucks on the road. Sizes range from LT215/85R16 to LT285/60R20.
The range's manufacturer's suggested retail price starts at $176.99. For more information, visit Bridgestone's website.
