Bridgestone Americas’ Firestone FD711 drive tire

Bridgestone Americas’ Firestone FD711 drive tire is engineered for durable long-lasting performance in high-scrub and high-traction environments. It is designed to offer long wear, enhanced retread capability and a solid grip in rain, mud and snow and is suited for long- and regional-haul, pickup-and-delivery and light-to-moderate on- and off-highway applications. The tire features an open shoulder design and aggressive tread blocks for added traction and grip; a staggered tread block design and tough tread compounds for added wear and abrasion resistance and a longer tread life; a slow-wearing cap compound with a cool-running base to help protect the tire’s casing from extreme heat; and a four-belt construction to combat casing penetration for improved durability and retreadability. It is available in sizes 11R22.5 and 11R24.5.
