New drive retread for tandem axle tractors from Bridgestone

LinkedIn +

Bridgestone Commercial, a division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, has introduced its new retread, the Bandag B760 FuelTech. This drive retread is designed for tandem axle tractors in truckload and less-than-truckload applications.

The retread has: an optimized groove width, which combats the retention of casing-damaging stones and improves drilling resistance, leading to increased casing life; a highly-siped tread design which provides strong traction on wet and dry surfaces; tie bars that control movement of the tread blocks for long, even wear; and multiple gripping edges that provide improved traction.

It is available in four tread sizes in the USA and Canada – 210-240mm – that accommodate nearly any standard-width casing size used for truckload and less-than-truckload applications.

Ben Rosenblum, director of Bandag marketing, said, “Due to its advanced tread design and proprietary compound, this product delivers up to 20% longer wear life when compared with the ultra-fuel efficient Bandag B710 FuelTech retread. Combined with dense siping for traction and fuel efficiency benefits, the B760 FuelTech retread is a smart solution for fleets focused on lowering their total operating costs.”
