Heavy-duty: October US used truck average retail sales price defied expectations
Bridgestone Americas (Bridgestone) has announced its new three-star 24.00R35 rigid dump truck tire and real-time tire monitoring system, IntelliTire, to construction and quarry customers. The three-star rigid dump truck tire as 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 three-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, the tire maker said. Additionally, the tire provides a high resistance to cuts and heat as trucks transfer larger hauls between long distances at high speeds.
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 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.
