Bridgestone Commercial Solutions (BCS), a division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, announced the launch of the M853, a new on/off highway all-position radial tire for regional hauls that combines wear resistance with extra load capacity for longer service.

The M853 features tread enhancements that deliver extended, reliable performance. An enhanced pattern, designed with interlocking multi-edge blocks, digs deeper for more solid traction on both worksites and highways. Tie bars link tread blocks together to combat heel-and-toe wear. The shoulder design helps combat irregular wear for longer tread life, and stone rejector platforms help repel stones that can damage casings.

The M853 has four steel belts, a steel body ply, and thick sidewalls that help protect the casing from worksite damage.

This tire replaces the M850 and is available in two sizes, 11R22.5 and 11R24.5, both in a “H” load rating. A third size, 12R22.5 (“H” load rating), will be available in the fourth quarter of 2012.
