Firestone TireBridgestone America’s Firestone FS818 wide-base radial tire is engineered for all-position use in on-and-off-highway severe-service applications.

Suited for higher payloads and added flotation, Bridgestone says the tire uses special tread compounds to help resist cuts, chips, tearing and irregular wear. It is designed with a deep self-cleaning tread pattern for added traction and long original mileage, while stone rejector platforms in every groove offer added durability.

Additionally, Bridgestone says block sipes help slice through water and provide added grip on wet roads, while four steel belts help extend casing life and protect against cuts and punctures. Sidewall protector ribs aid in fighting cuts, snags and abrasions, while the tire’s block design and edges are optimized for on-/off-highway environments.

The FS818 tire is available in sizes 385/65R22.5, 425/65R22.5 and 445/65R22.5, the company says.
