Bridgestone Commercial Solutions’ M853 is an on-/off-highway all-position radial for regional hauls that combines wear resistance with extra load capacity. Suitable for a variety of terrain, the M853 features an improved tread pattern designed with interlocking multi-edge blocks that digs deeper for increased traction on both work sites and highways, allowing the tire to move repeatedly between asphalt, gravel, and dirt. Tie bars link tread blocks together to combat heel-and-toe wear, and a shoulder design helps combat irregular wear for longer tread life. Stone rejecter platforms repel stones that can damage casings, while four steel belts, a steel body ply, and thick sidewalls protect the casing from work-site damage. The M853 replaces the M850 and is currently available in two sizes, 11R22.5 and 11R24.
