The company says the tire is a fuel-efficient, SmartWay-verified and California Air Resources Board (CARB) compliant tire backed by the Firestone brand.
The FD692 is engineered with 400% more biting edges than its predecessor and was given a three-peak mountain snowflake certification, Bridgestone says.
In addition to its all-weather performance, the Firestone FD692 offering helps fleets reduce fuel costs without compromising on durability, the company says.
The company says other features of the Firestone FD692 drive tire include:
- A high-rigidity tread pattern to control movement of the tire’s tread blocks for even wear and reduced rolling resistance;
- Proprietary sidewall technology and design to limit heat loss, improve fuel efficiency and reduce overall tire weight without sacrificing durability; and
- Stone rejector platform to increase retreadability of the casing by preventing trapped stones from pushing into tread grooves and piercing the tire’s belt layer.
