Bridgestone announced the newest addition to its existing Bandag MaxTread line, the FuelTech Drive retread for the drive wheel position.
The MaxTread FuelTech Drive is a SmartWay-verified, closed-shoulder retread engineered for fleets operating in over-the-road hauling services. Utilizing a special tread compound to lower rolling resistance and deliver excellent mileage performance, this retread is also California Air Resources Board (CARB) compliant.
The MaxTread FuelTech Drive tire is engineered to reduce energy loss, lowering rolling resistance for optimum fuel efficiency. The tire is designed for long, even treadwear with advanced technology that controls the movement of the tire’s ribs and treads blocks during rotation. The MaxTread FuelTech Drive tire also provides multiple gripping edges and a siped tread design to provide trusted traction on wet and dry surfaces.
The Bandag MaxTread line includes nine Bandag retread patterns outlined below:
- Drive position: BDM, BDLT, BDV, DR5.3, DR4.3, FuelTech Drive
- Trailer position: TR4.1, Eclipse SST
- All-position: BRM
