Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions' Bridgestone R287A steer tire delivers superior tread wear and mileage for regional and long-haul applications. Approved for use on EPA SmartWay-certified equipment and CARB compliant, it features a refined Side Groove structure that acts similar to a shock absorber, helping prevent shoulder edge wear from spreading to the ribs. The inside of the groove is engineered to prevent stress cracking. The Equalizer Rib feature promotes uniform rib wear and higher removal mileage by fighting initiation and spread of rib edge wear. The base compound shields the casing from damaging tread heat for enhanced retreadability. A shallow 16/32-inch tread depth for less tread squirm also promotes longer mileage.
