"Fleets who prefer the quality and reliability of Bridgestone brand products, and who can benefit from the use of wide base radials can now outfit their vehicles with Greatec technology," said Kurt Danielson, director of truck and bus tire marketing, Bridgestone/Firestone North American Tire, LLC (BFNT).
"In our view, the market niche for wide base radials is weight-conscious fleets, like bulk haulers, flatbed haulers or fleets that tend to 'gross out' before they 'cube out.' Such fleets may be able to convert weight saved into extra revenue-producing payload," says Danielson.
Fleets that gross out before they cube out can use Greatec radials to reduce vehicle weight, making more revenue-producing payload possible," concluded Danielson.
