Bridgestone brand Dueler A/TRH-S light truck tires will be original equipment on the 2006 HUMMER H3. Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire, LLC (BFNT) will supply its Bridgestone Dueler A/T tires in size LT285/75R16, load range C, for the new mid-sized HUMMER SUV. "The Bridgestone Dueler A/TRH-S is a result of more than two years of development collaboration between General Motors and Bridgestone Firestone," said Michael Martini, president, original equipment consumer tire, BFNT. "We are very pleased to have been named as original equipment supplier for this high-exposure and prestigious vehicle model. This represents an expansion of our original equipment business with General Motors to include the HUMMER badge. The innovative Bridgestone Dueler A/T light truck product complements the performance specifications of this new vehicle." The tire features a robust three-body ply construction for tremendous off-road performance as well as an over-the-sidewall tread design with integrated noise treatment technology for reduced driving noise. A rim protector reduces debris from getting between the wheel and the tire.
