Winter Retread Tires in Lafayette
Northern fleets can't risk downtime during the coldest and iciest months of the year. And southern fleets can't stop when Jack Frost comes nipping. With retread tires from your Lafayette Bandag dealer, your truck can go where it needs to go to get the job done. You need tires that are engineered to push through the harshest conditions, like the traction-based BDR-W retread tire. BDR-W tires are explicitly made for tandem axle drive applications in less-than-truckload and truckload service. No other tire retreader has the training, testing, and history of Bandag. Our commercial retread tires offer confident handling in wintry temperatures, flurries, or sleet.
Lafayette All-Season Retread Truck Tires
Bandag retread tires are designed to give your trucks better traction, no matter the weather. That's Bandag. Built for Better.™ Our commercial truck tires shine season after season—even when there's not a sliver of sunshine in sight. You can count on them to provide grip on wet, dry, and snow-covered roads. How? All-season truck tires like the BDR-AS feature a wide shoulder to help make sure you don't get bogged down by thick mud or snow. More rubber in the center of the tread helps support precise handling, and a center tie bar steadies the tire footprint to improve tread wear. But don't let all these features have you worried about a rough ride. Bandag all-season recap tires limit road noise to ensure driver comfort.
Fuel-Efficient Truck Tires in Lafayette
Fuel costs are one of the most significant expenses for owner-operators and fleet managers. That's what makes low rolling resistance tires so attractive to trucking operations. As tire rolling resistance decreases, fuel savings increase. We crunched the numbers. 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 manufactures some of the lowest rolling resistance recap tires. And our FuelTech tread helps to deliver excellent performance on top of the eco-competitive benefits of retreading. Contact your Lafayette Bandag dealer for fuel-efficient retread tires for truckload, less-than-truckload, and pickup-and-delivery applications. We can equip a range of axle configurations.  A specific example is provided in the text below. Assumptions for this example include the following: diesel costs - $3.00/gal; miles per year- 100,000; tandem axle loads -34,000 lbs total.
