Bridgestone Americas Inc. has introduced the Bandag BLSS retread, which the company says is designed for fleets that travel in both on and off-road environments. The new retread is made for the drive tire position and according to Bridgestone utilizes a specialized tread compound to resist cutting and chipping, for a longer read life in severe service applications.
“We recognize severe service fleets face the toughest driving conditions when alternating between on- and off-road environments and need a longer-lasting tire engineered to meet their unique performance requirements,” said LaTres Jarrett, director of marketing for Bandag with Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. “We designed the Bandag BLSS retread to deliver powerful grip and high traction, along with a reliable performance, no matter the application to help ensure fleets are getting the most out of their valuable tire assets.”
Features of the Bandag BLSS retread highlighted by Bridgestone include:
- A deep tread of 32/32-in. to provide more volume for longer wear;
- A stone rejection technology for added durability; and
- A specialized compound to decrease chipping and cutting in tough conditions.
