Three new sizes have been added to the Bandag range of retreads for city bus and coach applications. The Bandag U-AP 001 city bus retread is now available in size 245/70 R19.5 and the Bandag BDR-C coach retread in sizes 245/70 R19.5 and 295/80 R22.5. As such, the Bandag urban and coach line-up now covers most common premium casing sizes on the market.

Harald Van Ooteghem, senior truck and bus tires category management, Bridgestone Europe, said, “With the potential to extend tire life and improve safety, economy and performance, Bandag premium retreads help businesses boost productivity, decrease downtime and lower the total cost per kilometer of their tires. Now, with the release of three new sizes, even more city bus and coach operators will be able to take advantage of the unique benefits.”
