V-Steel Rock Quarry PremiumLong-lasting, cool-running tires are of the utmost concern for quarry operators who depend on rigid-frame haul trucks to keep up production. According to Bridgestone, its new V-Steel Rock Quarry Premium (VRQP) radial tire meets these stringent requirements. The new tire, says the company, provides a unique combination of extra-deep tread, specially designed tread compounds that provide enhanced wear resistance and cut resistance, along with a tread design that promotes cooler running temperatures. The net result, says Bridgestone, is a long-lasting tire that provides exceptional heat resistance.
