The Bridgestone All-Position Steer Radial Tire, No. R244, is designed with rib-type pattern to help deliver a smoother ride and the wide-base design allows a vehicle to haul more. The tire has special tread compounds to provide resistance to irregular wear, extending life and reducing cost per mile. The sidewall protector ribs protect the casing from curbing damage, cuts and abrasions. If one side of the tire wears away, the user can flip the tire over for continued protection. The 425/65R22.5 size is available now, and the 385/65R22.5 and 445/65R22.5 sizes will be available later in 2014.
