EV Bizz: UPS takes its next step toward carbon-neutrality with the Freightliner eCascadia trucks
Bridgestone Commercial Solutions recently introduced the Bandag B799 tread product, a procure retread tread stock for the Bridgestone M799. According to the tiremaker, the new tread design offers solid traction and a deep tread depth that promotes long wear life for mild on/off-highway, regional haul and pick-up and delivery applications.
“The B799 meets the needs of fleets that operate in mixed service environments where they need on-road performance, as well as off-road capability where traction and durability are important,” said Matt Schnedler, retread product marketing manager, Bridgestone Commercial Solutions. “Additionally, the tread features proven Bandag tread compounding in an updated, optimized pattern for maximum performance.”
According to Bridgestone, other features of the Bandag B799 include:
- Deep 28/32 for long tread wear
- Open shoulder design for improved traction
- Stone rejector technology to help prevent trapped stones from damaging the casing, preserving retreadability
The Bandag B799 is available in four tread sizes in the U.S. and Canada—210 mm through 240 mm. The sizes accommodate nearly any casing size used for mild mixed service, regional haul and P&D applications, noted the tiremaker.
