Bridgestone Launches New Tire Line


Bridgestone Americas Off Road Tire, a division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC, has expanded its line of ultra heavy-duty tires for earthmovers in North America.

The V-Steel Rock E-Premium (VREP) off road tire features trapezoidal blocks with circumferential grooves that maximize wear resistance while minimizing internal friction and uneven wear.

The new VREP tire, specially designed for 100 t class earthmovers, also minimizes heat generation over a longer lifetime in heavy-duty mining operations.

“The VREP tire offers reliability and durability that enables earthmovers to continue working with improved productivity,” said Shawn Rasey, president, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, Off Road division. “The VREP tire gives you extended tire life resulting in a lower cost per hour and lower replacement costs.”

The VREP has an innovative lug arrangement that increases overall stability and riding comfort of the operator. The two-stage lug design helps to absorb the energy of shifting blocks, thus minimizing block wear. It is now available in one size: 27.00R49.
