Bridgestone Rounds Out Bandag MaxTread Line
Bridgestone Americas Inc. has completed its Bandag MaxTread portfolio with the addition of the SmartWay-verified Bandag MaxTread FuelTech Drive.
The closed-shoulder tread has been designed for long-haul fleets and features a low rolling resistance compound for "excellent mileage performance," according to Bridgestone officials.
"The new MaxTread FuelTech Drive retread is a full-efficient tire solution that maximizes mileage and performance," says Keith Iwinski, director of marketing, Bandag, U.S. and Canada.
"Ideal for fleets operating in truckload and less-than-truckload applications, this drive tire position retread delivers reliable and sustainable tire performance, positively impacting a fleet's bottom line."
The product delivers long, even tread wear "with advanced technology that controls the movement of the tire's ribs and tread blocks during rotation," according to Bridgestone.
The Bandag MaxTread line, which was unveiled earlier this year, encompasses the following products: BDM, BDLT, DR5.3, DR4.3 and FuelTech Drive (all drive position); the TR4.1 and Eclipse SST (both trailer position); and the all-position BRM.
