Winter Recap Tires in Tuscaloosa
Northern fleets can't risk downtime during the coldest and iciest months of the year. And southern fleets can't either. Your truck can go where it needs to go to get the job done when it rides on retread tires from your local Tuscaloosa Bandag dealer. Traction-based retread tires, like BDR-W, are designed to excel in rough conditions. BDR-W tires are explicitly made for tandem axle drive applications in less-than-truckload and truckload service. Few manufacturers have the testing, training, and legacy of Bandag. Our recap tires give you confident handling in wintry temperatures, flurries, or sleet.

Fuel-Efficient Truck Tires in Tuscaloosa
The price of fuel can put a big dent in your bottom line. In fact, owner-operators and fleet managers find that it's one of their most substantial expenses. That's what makes low rolling resistance tires so attractive to trucking operations. The lower the tire rolling resistance, the lower the fuel costs. Here's the math. A minor 10% reduction in Crr (a measurement of rolling resistance) can lower fuel consumption by 3% and result in monetary savings of $1,000 or more per truck per year.  What could your team do with more money in the budget? Bandag produces some of the lowest rolling resistance retreads. And our advanced FuelTech treads are among the most fuel-savvy of all commercial tires, retread or new.
