The Firestone FT491 is a commercial truck tire that is suitable for all positions but works especially well in single- and tandem-axle trailer and dolly use for both regional and long-haul service. The EPA SmartWay verified Firestone FT491 is also California Air Resources Board (CARB)-compliant and has a patented ULTI-Rib and Defense Groove to combat uneven wear, maximizing your miles.
A wide footprint on the Firestone FT491 distributes the tire’s footprint to assist in the even wear of the tread, and taking a full-size drive cap extends the life of the casing, and the Nonopro-Tech polymer compound of the tire limits energy lost through a low rolling resistance, optimizing fuel efficiency.
The sidewalls of the Firestone FT491 features an innovative design that lowers the overall weight of the tire without sacrificing durability thanks to protector ribs to resist abrasions from curb damage.
The combination of flow-through design and thirsty cross sipes improve traction by slicing through wet road conditions and quickly evacuating water.
