Auto-haul tire

Tires and wheels | December 06, 2013

Bridgestone-M749-auto-haulerBridgestone designed its M749 Drive Radial Tire for long- and regional-haul auto-haul vehicles. The M749 is available in size 295/60R22.5 and features the company’s proprietary WavedBelt design to help minimize belt stress at the edges, preserve casing durability and reduce casing growth.

Tie bars help control movement of the shoulder tread block for low rolling resistance and long even wear, while multiple cross-rib sipes help improve traction by slicing through water for a more solid grip on wet roads. Bridgestone’s Flexible Groove Fence partitions in the tire groove help dampen noise production.

Bridgestone also recently introduced its fuel-efficient R268 Ecopia premium all-position radial designed for regional and pickup-and-delivery applications. For more information, visit www.ecopiatrucktires.com.
