NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Bridgestone Americas Inc. has expanded its Firestone VersaBuilt All Traction radial tire line with the addition of a 14.00R24 size for loaders and graders (G2/L2).
The VersaBuilt AT is engineered to provide improved traction, versatility and dependable performance in a variety of environments, helping deliver improved productivity on the jobsite, Bridgestone said.
"The addition of the 14.00R24 tire rounds out the existing Firestone VersaBuilt All Traction offering and complements the total portfolio of radial off-the-road products with the durability you expect from the Firestone brand," said Tim Netzel, director of marketing, off-the-road, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations.
The VersaBuilt AT line is designed for improved traction with increased tire life. All sizes feature a heavy-duty all-steel casing and a SideArmor sidewall to deflect stones and debris to help protect against cuts and punctures. A self-cleaning tread pattern allows for more traction in soft and muddy surfaces.
Other key features of the Firestone VersaBuilt AT tire line include:
- A non-directional pattern to promote even wear over time;
- A proprietary compound for longer wear life and cut-resistance; and
- An open-shoulder design to provide additional traction.
Bridgestone introduced the Firestone VersaBuilt radial line in 2017. The first full line of OTR radial tires available in the Firestone brand, the VersaBuilt tire line features all-traction, all-purpose and deep-tread patterns to meet the demands of different applications and operating environments.
It's available in three 25-inch sizes as well — 17.5R25, 20.5R25 and 23.5R25.
