With a wide and deep tread depth, the new Greatec M825 wide-base drive radial from Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions (BBTS) is said to offer extended tire life and low cost per mile.
“It's ideal for weight-conscious fleets, like bulk haulers, where the vehicle reaches its gross weight limit while there's still cargo room left over,” said Chris Hoffman, manager, TBR & retread product marketing, BBTS. “Because Greatec M825 wide-base tires weigh less than the dual assemblies they replace, fleets may be able to convert weight saved into extra revenue-producing payload.”
The tire features a 29/32 in. tread depth that when combined with the wider tread, distributes weight and torque. Irregular wear is lessened through a stabilizing solid shoulder design; and a stiff, staggered tread block resists heel-and-toe wear, BBTS said. The tire is available in the 445/50R22.5 size with an L load rating.
