While maintaining 44% share of the United States retreaded truck tire market, Bridgestone-Bandag has had a busy couple of years. In addition to introducing new tread products for severe service applications, last year Bridgestone staged a 29-city roadshow, titled “Fleets We Depend On,” to educate fleets about the advantages of using retreads.
How many times do independent tire dealers expect to be able to retread a truck tire? Do their fleet customers expect the same? Modern Tire Dealer and Heavy Duty Trucking magazines asked dealers and fleets that question and more in an exclusive study of truck tires and their maintenance. The Truck Tires and Maintenance Survey provides a glimpse into how dealers and fleets approach retreading.
