Intelligent Products: Introducing the VZT

The new VZT 25 in. is the latest addition to Bridgestone's construction tire lineup.

Designed for loader and grader applications, the VZT enhances key performance attributes to help maximize productivity, boasting exceptional traction and durability while improving on its smooth, comfortable ride. The VZT's sidewall design provides enhanced cut resistance, enabling better total cost of ownership of the tire.

The VZT will be available beginning in the first half of 2024 in five sizes: 17.5R25, 20.5R25, 23.5R25, 26.5R25, and 29.5R25.

Bridgestone will manufacture the VZT in North America at the company's Bloomington, Ill., OTR plant, as well as in facilities in Japan and Thailand to serve Bridgestone's global customer base.

Integrated Technologies: Empower Your Products With IntelliTire, Toolbox

Bridgestone showcased its suite of Fleet Care mobility solutions for construction applications, focusing on IntelliTire and Toolbox.

IntelliTire is a remote-health monitoring system that uses internal or external stem-mounted sensors to provide critical real-time data, such as tire inflation pressure and temperature, to continually monitor the health of each tire throughout its life cycle.

Toolbox, a next-generation digital tire assessment and asset tracking platform, monitors a fleet's tires to help customers make informed decisions and manage the life cycle of tires for increased efficiency and profitability.

As part of Bridgestone Fleet Care, IntelliTire and Toolbox can help enable a more sustainable construction operation for customers.
