The big news for tyre buffs lately, is that the hugely successful Bridgestone Dueler M/T 674 range is now available in light truck construction.
Designed with high load capability to meet the grueling demands of offroad driving, the light truck tyre comes in 12 sizes to suit medium and large utilities, as well as large 4x4s and SUVs.
Bridgestone’s General Manager Technical Field Services, Claudio Sodano, says it’s part of Bridgestone’s commitment to meet the needs of the offroad community.
Says Sodano: “Thanks to its revolutionary 3D design, the Dueler M/T 674 also brings significantly improved offroad stability and wear life – two things mud terrain tyres aren’t commonly known to deliver.
“Our rigorous testing of the tyre in Kalimantan (Borneo) has been supported by positive feedback from customers. Many have commented on its outstanding wear life and ability to get them out of sticky situations.”
Using advanced computer generation and virtual mapping techniques, Bridgestone has developed a proprietary 3D approach to tread design.
Employing dynamic curves, contours and channels, means the grooves, voids and lugs have been specially engineered to enhance traction and handling.
In short, the 3D grooves cut easily into the mud,
and the 3D shoulder lugs then enable the tread to grab the ground and clear the mud off – meaning the tyres are self cleaning.
“(It’s) great news for those looking to use their vehicles in rough conditions.”
“Now offroad enthusiasts will be better equipped to tackle some serious mud.”
