Bridgestone Americas Inc. released the Bandag BRSS, an all-position retread designed for fleets that work in on- and off-road environments, from pavement to dirt and gravel.

Engineered for long wear life on multiple surfaces, the Bandag BRSS retread is designed to be a reliable solution for fleets looking to extend tire life and capitalize on the full performance potential of tire casings.

“Severe service fleets experience many conditions on their route, which is why we designed a retread offering that fits the needs of fleets in on/off highway applications,” says LaTres Jarrett, director of marketing for Bandag, which is part of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC.

Key features of the Bandag BRSS retread include:

  • deep tread of 20/32 inches for extended wear life;
  • specialized compound engineered to resist chipping and cutting; and
  • optimized tread design to discourage stone retention.

“The Bandag BRSS retread is a comprehensive solution that is versatile enough to perform across a variety of challenging applications, from logging to oil refining to construction, and deliver reliable performance regardless of the landscape,” says Jarrett.
