Firestone’s regional truck tyre range has been engineered to reduce both total cost of ownership and environmental footprint for fleet operations
Firestone’s new Range provides Dependable Performance, reducing Operational Costs
Firestone announced the launch of its new regional on-road truck tyre range, now developed with Bridgestone’s ENLITEN technology. Firestone serves customers seeking dependable products that offer value for money. Designed to address real-world issues in regional operations and meet the expectations of today’s fleets, FS424, FD624 and FT524 – the new Firestone regional on-road tyre range for steer, drive and trailer axles – offer enhanced reliability.
Firestone’s latest tyre range provides a mileage that’s up to 20 percent improved, compared to its predecessors, leading to a cost per kilometre that’s reduced by 10 percent. The new range also provides better fuel efficiency, with competitive label grades providing an up to 15 percent reduction in rolling resistance.
The tyre range’s longer wear life and optimised fuel efficiency is enabled by the introduction of ENLITEN technology, which optimises the total cost of ownership for truck fleets and accelerates their own sustainability journey. The ENLITEN tyre technology platform is Bridgestone’s approach to tyre development, combining cutting-edge technologies to provide safety and enhanced tyre performance for drivers, while improving the sustainability characteristics of the tyre.
Firestone’s latest regional truck tyre range ensures year-round dependability
Firestone’s latest truck tyre range will be available in six additional sizes as part of an expanded line-up. The first sizes will arrive on the market from September 2023, and the remaining will follow over the course of 2024. This new range will replace the current Firestone Plus line-up.
Commenting on this announcement was Waqqas Ahmad, Commercial Sales Director, Bridgestone EMIA: “Truck fleets need tyres that combine year-round reliability with a reduced total cost of ownership . Available in a wide range of sizes, the FS424, FD624 and FT524 are a landmark range for both the Firestone brand and cost-conscious fleets looking for the smart tyre choice.”
