Bandag B760 FuelTech retread introduced

July 15, 2015

Bridgestone Commercial, a division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, has introduced its newest retread product, the Bandag B760 FuelTech. This is a premium drive retread designed for tandem axle tractors in truckload and less-than-truckload applications. The B760 FuelTech is EPA SmartWay-verified and California Air Resources Board (CARB)-compliant.

Features of the B760 FuelTech retread include:

•Optimized groove width—combats the retention of casing-damaging stones and improves drilling resistance, leading to increased casing life

•Highly siped tread design—provides strong traction on wet and dry surfaces

•Tie bars—control movement of tread blocks for long, even wear

•Multiple gripping edges—promote traction

The B760 FuelTech is available in four tread sizes in the United States and Canada—210 through 240 mm. Sizes accommodate nearly any standard-width casing size used for truckload and less-than-truckload applications. The B760 FuelTech extends the Bandag portfolio of SmartWay-verified tread patterns for the drive position, which already includes the ultra fuel-efficient Bandag B710 retread.
