Bridgestone introduces new Bandag drive tire tread with improved wear life

Bridgestone Americas announced the launch of the new Bandag B713 FuelTech drive tire tread. The new tread is SmartWay verified and delivers fuel efficiency as well as improved wear life without compromising on traction or reliable performance, the company noted.

Key features to the Bridgestone Bandag B713 FuelTech design, according the company, include:

• A new proprietary compound that delivers 30% longer wear life and 7% better wear for more miles of low fuel cost performance.

• 3D siping featuring 130% more biting edges for improved traction.

• A continuous shoulder design that distributes weight and torque more evenly to fight irregular wear, which can lead to premature tire removal.

Fleets that utilize Bandag for retreading positively impact the environment by engaging in a circular economy. Last year in the U.S., 27,773 used tires were retreaded with the Bandag system, which saved 416,595 gallons of oil, diverted 1,150,000 pounds of waste from landfills, decreased tire waste by 823,469 pounds, and saved enough energy to power 744,261 homes.

The Bridgestone Bandag B713 FuelTech tread is available in four different sizes: 210, 220, 230 and 240.
