Bridgestone is rolling out a drive tire for high traction and high scrub applications in long haul, regional and delivery service fitments. The M770, along with the new M799 mixed service radial and the debut GREATEC R125A wide base radial, are currently on display at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas.

The M770 open-shoulder drive axel radial combines greater tread volume for longer mileage with superb traction in all weather conditions, according to product manager Bert Jones.

It features an innovative groove and block shape to fight lug base cracking and tearing, and for enhanced retreadability, the tire offers stone rejector platforms in the grooves to help prevent stones from getting trapped and drilling into the belts, he notes.

“The M770 is the next generation in open-shoulder drive tires,” says Jones. “Its wider and deeper tread pattern, along with the open-shoulder design, delivers exceptionally long wear life and excellent traction.”

It comes in four sizes. The 295/75R22.5 (G) is available now. The 285/75R24.5 (G), 11R22.5 (G/H) and 11R24.5 (G) are all expected to hit the market early next year.
