Mack Trucks Inc has chosen the Bridgestone R250F as the standard tire for its Granite and TerraPro Cabover model series of heavy-duty vocational trucks. Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire LLC is the standard supplier of tires for all new Mack trucks sold in North America.
The R250F is specially designed for precise handling and excellent traction for refuse and construction service. Its design includes five ribs, tough tread compound and solid shoulder ribs to resist scrub, and sidewall protector ribs to minimize damage from curbing, cuts and abrasions.
Mack also recently selected the R280 from Bridgestone as the standard tire for its Pinnacle highway model series. The R280 has improved wet traction, plus features to resist irregular wear and ensure long wear, high traction, and retreadability for drive axles.
