Bridgestone releases Bandag FuelTech retread solutions and new Ecopia truck tires

Bridgestone Commercial Solutions (BCS) offers its new Bridgestone Ecopia truck tire and Bandag FuelTech retread solution. These two product lines, five new tires and four retreads, are designed to work together. Specially engineered compounds paired with matching retread patterns promote an eco-friendly solution that continues optimal low rolling resistance from new Ecopia tire to FuelTech retread while extending casing life.

With Bandag FuelTech retreads, fleets can also cut their number one operating cost,
fuel. Bridgestone Ecopia technology found in the casing that contributes to lower rolling
resistance and optimum fuel efficiency carries through to the retreading side of the equation.

FuelTech also uses advanced tread compounds to reduce rolling resistance and
innovative tread design that promotes long, even wear. Combined with the Ecopia casing, fuel
efficiency benefits are extended from new tire to retread while extending tire life. Bandag
FuelTech retreads are available in tread patterns that complement Bridgestone Ecopia new
tires, including the B710 FuelTech drive retread and B197 FuelTech trailer pattern.

For users of wide base singles, there are Bandag B835 FuelTech and B135
FuelTech (based on the new Bridgestone Greatec M835 Ecopia drive and Greatec R135
Ecopia trailer radials).

Bridgestone Ecopia and Bandag FuelTech tires are designed for optimum rolling resistance while maximizing removal mileage and retreadability – for a lower total cost of ownership.
