Bridgestone introduced a new tire, the M863, an all-position radial tire designed for tough trucks, concrete mixers, dump trucks, construction fleets, logging trucks and more. 

"When designing the Bridgestone M863, our goal was to produce an all-position tire without trading off its durability, retreadability or performance on- and off-highway," says Steve Hoeft, president of the commercial truck group for Bridgestone Americas.

Bridgestone says the M863 features four-belt construction for durability and a premium casing for retreadability. It also has stone rejector platforms, block sipes to promote traction, stabilizing tie bars, and wide flow-through grooves for wet traction. 

It's available in four sizes, 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 315/80R22.5 and 12R22.5. More sizes will be available later this year, Bridgestone says.
