When Bridgestone launches a new truck tyre in Australia, you can be assured it stacks up to our conditions.
It’s been a busy couple of years – recently launching the new flagship M866 drive tyre and R154 steer tyre, as well as the Firestone FD664 drive tyre and Firestone FS401 steer tyre, and FT469 trailer tyres.
What sets all these products apart is the rigorous testing regime they were all subjected to – real world testing by Bridgestone’s local technical field services team throughout their respective developments to ensure they are built for Australian needs.
Each of Bridgestone’s truck and bus tyre developments has been directly influenced by our market, and not launched until they have been proven through millions of kilometres of evaluation in their intended applications.
Ahead of the launch of the M866, Bridgestone customers involved in the testing clocked up 13 million kilometres across every conceivable application: linehaul, regional, urban and metropolitan use, mild to medium on/off use, and through off-road outback routes.
It’s statistics like these that give Australian truck operators confidence that the Bridgestone, Firestone and Bandag products available through truck equipped Bridgestone Select and Bridgestone Service Centre stores throughout Australia, as well as through its national network of affiliate truck locations are not just built for local conditions but are also proven to perform.
