New Bandag U-AP 001 all-position tread
It’s now been about 18 months since Bridgestone launched its new U-AP 001 all-position truck tyre, and this line-up has now been joined by corresponding Bandag treads. Bridgestone says this new range of urban-application Bandage retreads “fits seamlessly” within the company’s Total Tyre Life offer and is available in sizes to match the Bridgestone U-AP 001 as well as for other brand casings in sizes 245/70R19.5, 265/70R19.5, 305/70R19.5, 11R22.5, 12R22.5, 295/80R22.5, 275/70R22.5, and 305/70R22.5.
“We are very excited by the launch of the Bandag U-AP 001,” comments Harald Van Ooteghem, senior manager truck & bus tyres category management at Bridgestone Europe. “In fact, we were already aware of the huge potential of this new pattern in terms of our Total Tyre Life solution with the launch of the Bridgestone U-AP 001 tyre last year. Big improvements in mileage, coupled with Bridgestone’s renowned safety and driver comfort add up to equally big savings for businesses on the total cost per km of their tyres. Greater mileage means reduced replacement costs, reduced rolling resistance means less fuel, while premium safety and performance ensure operational continuity and less downtime. In short, Bandag offers competitive performance on all fronts, so our customers can sharpen their own competitive edge.”
