BRIDGESTONE® range of aircraft tires includes Bias, Radial and Revolutionarily Reinforced Radial Tires (RRR).

BRIDGESTONE® Bias tires feature enhanced tire durability, greater overload durability, reduced weight, new cord and performance improvements due to the integration of Tension Control Optimization (TCOT) and Aircraft Tire Tension Control Optimization (ACOT) Theory principles.
BRIDGESTONE® Radial tires feature lighter design, reduced rolling resistance, rigged belt design, added strength to belt and carcass plies and increased number of landings.
BRIDGESTONE® Revolutionarily Reinforced Radial Tires (RRR) feature superior safety, higher cut resistance, more casing durability after received Foreign Object Damage (F.O.D.), economy, less weight and more landing cycles (improved tire wear). They have been selected by Airbus and Boeing as OE tires for their respective aircraft.
Please refer to the supplied documentation and the Aircraft Tire Application Table for additional information.
(*) Retread tires have undergone a remanufacturing process to replace the worn tread on used tires with new tread to help extend the life of the tire. The number of times the tread has been replaced in the tire casing is indicated by a number just after the letter "R" in the product reference number (SKU), namely R1, R2, R3 and so on.
