Launched in style at the Reifen Essen show in summer 2014, the new generation of Firestone tyres, the FS422 (steer), FD622 (drive) and FT522 (trailer) are designed to offer reliable performance and a long service life at low cost.
For the successors of the FS400, FD600 and TSP3000, the Bridgestone subsidiary says the new line-up is manufactured with the latest technology to offer a robust casing and slim bead. The former ensures a longer tyre life and better retreading whereas the slimmer bead reduces tyre weight and therefore lowers fuel consumption.
Furthermore, the tread pattern of the FS422 is designed to reduce noise and improve driving comfort. As for the FD622, itsunidirectional pattern is designed to quickly disperse water on wet roads. It also carries the M+S and 3PMSF markings. Finally, the FT522 combines high durability with good handling, even in bad weather conditions or on poor road surfaces.
This new Firestonerange is available in the sizes 315/80R22.5 (drive and steer) and in 385/65R22.5 (trailer).
