The Firestone FT491 is a highway terrain, all season tire manufactured for commercial vehicles. It was made to be mounted on the all axle positions.
The model improves the tread life with its ribbed tread design. The tire’s flat footprint and ribbed tread pattern closely follow the road surface at all times and evenly circulate the driving pressure along the tread area. The equally spread out forces of acceleration, cornering and braking avoid the formation of irregular tread wear on the tire’s footprint. The durable tire compound slows the tread wear rate down thanks to its wear-resistance. The slower even tread wear rate extends the tread life and the tire’s usability greatly.
The model guarantees excellent all weather traction. The tread’s ribbed design with the optimal siping pattern firmly grips the road surface in dry, wet and winter weather, which upgrades the year round performing capability. The siping detail increases the number of biting edges gripping the road surface, which ensures a secure driving experience. The tire compound keeps its flexibility throughout the year, including in colder winter weather. The tread’s circumferential grooves prevent hydroplaning. They eliminate water and slush from beneath the tire’s footprint and enhance the wet and winter weather traction.
The FT491 promotes superb durability. The model features a reinforced full steel belt internal structure that maintains its optimal tire shape at all times. This construction prevents the tire from deforming under the driving and load pressure affecting the model. The better pressure durability improves the tire’s load carrying and withstanding capability. The prevention of the deformation of the tire’s optimal shape also upgrades the driving safety as it boosts the model’s controllability in all conditions.
