Bandag makes trailer tread available

June 19, 2006

Bandag Inc.'s BTL-SA tread is now available in North America.

It is designed for spread axle and multi-axle trailer applications.

"As fleets use greater numbers of larger spread axle trailers, tires on the forward axle really take a beating," says Chris Hoffman, product manager, global tire products, for Bandag.

"We’ve modified the shoulders on our BTL-SA tire design to resist the scrub-induced belt separations caused by dragging the forward axle tires in tight turns or while maneuvering at crowded loading docks."

BTL-SA contains a 16/32” tread depth and is now available in 210, 220 and 230mm sizes.
