A new Bandag retread has been introduced to cater to construction, civil engineering and other on/off applications across a wide range of surface and weather conditions. The M-Drive 001 tread is based upon the Bridgestone M-Drive 001 drive-axle tyre and is M+S marked. The tread can be obtained in sizes 13R22.5, 295/80R22.5 and 315/80R22.5, a portfolio that covers the most frequently-encountered on/off vehicles on the market.
“Tyres are already a critical component in the efficiency of any operation,” comments Harald Van Ooteghem, senior manager truck and bus tyre product marketing at Bridgestone Europe. “And in on/off environments, where they have to meet the dual constraints of on-road safety and off-the-road performance, fleet managers really need tyres that can go the distance. The new Bandag M-Drive 001 retread now takes them even further: maximising the lifespan of valuable casings without compromising on safety, durability or traction. The best of both worlds for long-lasting performance in all possible worlds.”
