Bridgestone has recently introduced a range of new crane tyres in the VHS pattern. Newly available is a high speed crane tyre in 445/95 R25 174F (80 kmph). This tyre offers good all round performance for modern mobile cranes.

Andrew Dowdall, Bridgestone Ireland’s Off-the-Road and Industrial Tyre specialist says: “We believe we are market leaders in Ireland because we can offer a solution for almost every Off-the-Road and Industrial application with technically superior and very durable products.”

Underlining Bridgestone’s expertise is the world’s largest radial tyre manufactured by the company. The Bridgestone VRF mining truck tyre weighs in at around five tonnes and this giant tyre measures over 4m in height (when fitted) and nearly 1.5m across.
