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, Bridgestone says.

“Ideal for fleets operating in truckload and less-than-truckload applications, this drive tire position retread delivers reliable and sustainable tire performance positively impacting a fleet’s bottom line,” said Keith Iwinski, director of marketing for Bandag, U.S. and Canada, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations.

The MaxTread FuelTech Drive tire is engineered to reduce energy loss, lowering rolling resistance for optimum fuel efficiency, Bridgestone says. The tire is designed for long, even tread wear with advanced technology that controls the movement of the tire’s ribs and tread 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 company adds.

Earlier this year, Bridgestone introduced the Bandag MaxTread line featuring Bandag retreads as a standalone, single unit tire solution, rather than a traditional tire 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.

  • Drive position: BDM, BDLT, BDV, DR5.3, DR4.3, FuelTech Drive
  • Trailer position: TR4.1, Eclipse SST
  • All-position: BRM

Each Bandag MaxTread tire is locally retreaded and backed by a lifetime limited warranty featuring 100% coverage for the life of the tread, Bridgestone says.
