NEWEST & BRIGHTEST: Get a grip in both directions

Bridgestone senior manager Paul Comninos said VJT’s innovative tread pattern ensured the same high traction moving forward or backward, for extra rimpull and productivity.“In addition, a larger tread volume compared with the VMT design results in significantly slower wear rates,” he said. “This larger tread volume and slower wear rate gives extended tyre life.”Comninos said the VJT’s sidewalls had been shaped to minimise damage from cutting, with cut resistance further enhanced by protectors to guard against tears and cuts due to heavy loads. “The new design also features more rigid sidewalls, meaning fewer sidewall cuts – again increasing tyre life – but also reduced vibration, for greatly improved operator comfort,” he said.“Bridgestone’s tyre design engineers have paid particular attention to reducing vibration – and therefore increasing operator comfort – through the use of two separate reinforcement systems designed to provide extra-low vibration.” VJT tyres are available in the popular sizes for mid-sized wheel loaders and articulated dump trucks, including 20.5R25* (loader only), and 23.5R25 MS* and 26.5R25 MS* (loader and articulated dump truck).
