Bridgestone Americas announced the VSWAS 23.5R25 V-Steel Snow Wedge All Season tire, a size expansion to the Bridgestone Off-the-Road (OTR) line of radial snow tires. Designed for grader and loader applications, the VSWAS 23.5R25 provides efficient performance in deep snow with a tread pattern that reduces stone holdings without the need for studs or chains. The VSWAS 23.5R25 is also designed for year-round use, negating the need for seasonal tire change-outs.
Key innovations to the VSWAS 23.5R25 include:
- Deep siping design—For year-round use and advanced capability in snow, gravel and soft sandy conditions.
- Special tread design—With wide grooves and angled lugs walls to help minimize stone retention, stone throw or the need for chains while contributing to a comfortable ride.
- Cut-resistant compound—For reduced cutting, chipping and puncturing, which helps extend the life of the tire.
