Bridgestone Americas Launches Bandag MaxTread Line


Bridgestone Americas, Inc. has announced the introduction of the all-new Bandag MaxTread line for commercial fleets.

Eight Popular Patterns Available

The new range has been designed to offer quality Bandag retreads as a standalone, single unit tyre solution, rather than a traditional tyre cap and casing offering. The line includes trailer, drive and all-position fitments for light truck, waste, long haul, severe service, and pickup and delivery applications.

“The Bandag MaxTread line provides fleets with an efficient and cost-effective way to capitalise on the reliability and profitability of retreads,” said Keith Iwinski, director of marketing, Bandag, U.S. and Canada, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. “MaxTread is an ideal tyre solution for fleets of all sizes, particularly small-to-mid-size fleets that may be in the beginning stages of adopting a retreading programme and fleets that need a single replacement tyre while on the road. We are excited to offer this dependable new solution.”

The Bandag MaxTread line includes eight popular Bandag retread patterns including the drive axle patterns BDM, BDLT, BDV, DR5.3 and DR4.3, two trailer patterns TR4.1 and Eclipse, plus the all-position BRM pattern.

All Bandag MaxTread tyres are backed by a lifetime limited warranty featuring 100% coverage for the life of the tread.
