Bridgestone Americas showcased the latest in its integrated portfolio of off-the-road (OTR) products, technologies and services at the AGG1 Aggregates Academy & Expo in Nashville. Demonstrating the benefits of using intelligent products backed by integrated technology solutions, Bridgestone introduced its new 3-star 24.00R35 rigid dump truck tire and real-time tire monitoring system, IntelliTire, to construction and quarry customers at this year’s show.
Bridgestone’s 3-star rigid dump truck tire is an expansion of its 24.00R35 product portfolio, a lineup specially developed for mid-sized rigid dump trucks to carry hefty loads on flat terrain, often at quarries and mines. Featuring a 3-star rating, the new 24.00R35 delivers 8% greater payload capacity along with a deeper tread depth to provide excellent tire wear and improved traction.1 Additionally, the tire provides a high resistance to cuts and heat as trucks transfer larger hauls between long distances at high speeds.
“As demand continues to strengthen in the construction and quarry segments, we remain dedicated to helping maximize productivity for our customers by pairing intelligent products with best-in-class services2 and integrated technology solutions,” said Rob Seibert, president, off-the-road tires, Bridgestone Americas. “We are meeting growing industry demand with a superior product that features new technology and enhanced performance to optimize productivity.”
Bridgestone is scheduled to begin production on the new 24.00R35 rigid dump truck tire with an all-new traction pattern in late 2022, followed by a new hard rock pattern.
Bridgestone is now also offering IntelliTire, its real-time tire monitoring solution, to construction and quarry customers for 49-in. or smaller applications. IntelliTire uses stem-mounted flow-through external sensors, in addition to internal sensors, to provide critical real-time data such as tire inflation pressure and temperature to continually monitor the health of each tire throughout its lifecycle. Transmitting sensor details through a cloud-based system, IntelliTire uses advanced and predictive algorithms to analyze data and issue alerts and customized reports to fleet operators.
