Bridgestone Launches a New Range of On/Off Tyres

Bridgestone Europe is launching a new range of On/Off tyres with higher load capacities (EVO marked). According to the company, the advanced new line-up gives operators in the construction and mining sectors the opportunity to carry heavier loads – without compromising tyre performance, cut resistance and durability.

The new EVO line-up with higher load capacities comprises:

  • M840 EVO in sizes 13R22.5 & 315/80R22.5 (All position, On/Off road)
  • L355 EVO in sizes 13R22.5 & 315/80R22.5 (Drive, On/Off road)
  • M748 EVO in size 385/65R22.5 (Trailer, On/Off road)
  • L317 EVO in size 13R22.5 (All position, Off road)

Thanks to the new Bridgestone EVO range, compared to standard tyres operators will be able to carry an extra 0.5 tons per axle for a single fitment and 2.6 tons on a double fitment with M840 EVO, L355 EVO and L317 EVO. The increased load for M748 EVO is 1.0 tons per axle with a single fitment.

This increased load capacity has apparently been achieved without compromising Bridgestone’s performance advantages: excellent durability, high resistance to cuts and chipping, and robust casing offering superior retreadability and extended tyre life.

The new On/Off EVO tyres are also suitable for use on mud and fresh or melting snow (M+S), offering better driving performance than standard tyres. They are also marked with the alpine symbol, identifying snow tyres as defined in UN Regulation R117.02. This allows for excellent grip and braking performance all year round.

“By increasing the load capacity of our On/Off line-up, Bridgestone can help customers raise overall efficiency by maximizing use of their heavy vehicles, with no trade off in terms of tyre life,” explained Harald Van Ooteghem, Senior Manager Marketing Planning, Commercial Business Unit, Bridgestone Europe.
