Bridgestone’s new Greatec M847 wide-base radial tire is made for urban applications.
Engineered with enduring strength and longevity, the new all-position tire is designed to provide fleets with uncompromising durability, improved fuel efficiency and lower total cost of ownership.
Bridgestone introduced the Greatec M847 at Waste Expo 2023, held in May at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
“Fleets that operate in high-scrub, urban areas need reliable tires to keep up with the pace of their business while also cutting their cost per mile,” said Chris Tavares, Executive Director, Commercial Marketing, Bridgestone Americas. “Our team of engineers at Bridgestone designed the Greatec M847 with this in mind and have developed an innovative tire with unwavering performance and exceptional longevity.”
Features & benefits
Innovative features and benefits of the Greatec M847 tire include:
- A redesigned tread package with a deeper, 26/32nd design combined with an application-specific compound to deliver increased wear life and scrub resistance with 8% lower rolling resistance.
- Stone rejector platforms and wide shoulder grooves to help prevent groove-cracking and stone damage to belts, and to enhance retreadability.
- A continuous shoulder to provide long, even wear and reduced rolling resistance by controlling movement of the ribs and blocks during rotation.
- Optimized WAVED BELTTM technology and proven TURN IN PLYTM design to promote wear out performance and casing durability to help deliver outstanding retreadability
When paired with Bridgestone Bandag retreads, the Greatec M847 tire helps to reduce operating costs and environmental impacts, maximizing fleet uptime and sustainability. The Greatec M847 can also be supported by solutions like the Bridgestone Fleet Care tire-monitoring service, IntelliTire, which provides real-time data on tire pressure monitoring, temperature and speed to detect and avoid tire issues before they happen.
The Bridgestone Greatec M847 tire is currently available in 455/55R22.5.
