Bridgestone 8 tire treads


Bridgestone Americas Inc. (BSAM), Nashville, Tennessee, has announced the introduction of the Bandag MaxTread line. The Bandag MaxTread line features Bandag retreads as a standalone, single-unit tire solution, rather than a traditional tire cap and casing offering, reports BSAM in a news release. 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 capitalize on the reliability and profitability of retreads,” says Keith Iwinski, BSAM director of marketing for Bandag in the U.S. and Canada. “MaxTread is an ideal tire solution for fleets of all sizes, particularly small to midsize fleets that may be in the beginning stages of adopting a retreading program and fleets that need a single replacement tire while on the road. We are excited to offer this dependable new solution.”

The Bandag MaxTread line includes the following eight Bandag retread pattern applications:

  • drive position BDM, BDLT, BDV, DR5.3 and DR4.3;
  • trailer position TR4.1 and Eclipse; and  
  • all-position BRM.

According to BSAM, each Bandag MaxTread tire is locally manufactured and verified for service using shearography, a technology that scans each casing from bead to bead in under two minutes to ensure quality. All Bandag MaxTread tires are backed by a lifetime limited warranty featuring coverage for the life of the tread.
