Economical Design

  • Low tyre weight for improved fuel consumption


The new Firestone ON/OFF truck tyres are built with a slim bead to reduce bead filler volume. In consequence, the tyre’s weight is reduced, and low tyre weight helps to lower fuel consumption and increase the payload. They also integrate tie-bars between the tread blocks, which results in increased block stiffness and minimised heel & toe wear. Therefore, tyres last longer and the tyre noise level is reduced.


The new Firestone ON/OFF tyres includes M+S marking, which makes these tyres suitable for use on mud and fresh or melting snow, offering better grip and braking. FS833 tyres are suitable for use in severe winter conditions, and therefore are carrying the Alpine marking* as defined in UN Regulation R117.02.
