“Bridgestone continues to invest in research to deliver retread solutions that optimize tire management programs at a fraction of the cost of new tires,” said Ben Rosenblum, director of marketing for Bandag with the  Bridgestone Commercial Group. “The Bandag BRM3 is the longest wearing tread for refuse applications that Bandag has ever produced, while still offering the traction and durability that refuse companies require to meet the day-to-day demands placed on their fleets. Bandag is the retreader of choice for America’s largest refuse fleets, and we continue to expand our product portfolio to better serve the needs of these analytical customers.”

Features of the BRM3 retread highlighted by the company include:

  • A proprietary, scrub-resistant compound, which contributes to long service life.
  • Robust shoulders that help resist damage caused by frequent twisting and turning often found in refuse applications.
  • A high center void design to enhance traction, and shoulder sipes that contribute to strong grip on wet roads.
  • The BRM3 retread from Bandag was developed exclusively for refuse fleets striving to lower their cost per mile or reduce cost per driver hours. The BRM3 delivers significant improvements over its predecessors, including an improvement of more than 20% in wet braking traction when compared to the BRM2 tread pattern, and 20% longer wear life than the BRM tread pattern.
