The FD692 is engineered with 400% more biting edges than its predecessor and was given a three-peak mountain snowflake certification, Bridgestone 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
  • A 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.

The Firestone FD692 tire is now available in four sizes in the U.S. and Canada.
