Firestone-FS561-tire-500x281Bridgestone’s new Firestone FS561 is an on-highway all-position radial tire designed to reduce susceptibility to stone retention and drilling and is recommended for steering applications in regional and pickup-and-delivery use, the company says.

A rugged casing with sidewall protector ribs is engineered to resist cuts, snags and abrasions from curbing and impacts, while the sidewall design helps reduce tire weight to improve fuel economy. The FS561 now is available in sizes 295/75R22.5 and 11R22.5, with more sizes available later this year.
