Winter Recap Tires in Kalamazoo
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. Your truck can go where it needs to go to get the job done when it rides on retread tires from your local Kalamazoo Bandag dealer. Retread commercial truck tires for winter traction, like BDR-W, are designed to conquer severe conditions. BDR-W tires are specifically made to perform on tandem axle drive applications in truckload and less-than-truckload service. Few manufacturers have the testing, training, and legacy of Bandag. Our recap tires give you confident handling in frigid temperatures, sheets of sleet, and flurries of snow.
Kalamazoo 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.™ These truck tires shine in summer, spring, or fall—even when there's no sun to be seen. Allow us to introduce one of our premier all-season retreads. All-season commercial truck tires like the BDR-AS feature open shoulder voids to provide admirable "clean out" in sticky snow and mud. More rubber in the center of the tread pattern enhances ice handling and traction, and a center tie bar steadies the tire footprint to improve tread wear. And don't worry about all these features making for a bumpy ride. Bandag all-season recap tires limit road noise to ensure driver comfort.
Find Fuel-Efficient Truck Tires in Kalamazoo
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. Fuel savings increase as tire rolling resistance decreases. The numbers add up. Studies have found that even a 10% reduction in Crr (how rolling resistance is quantified) can reduce fuel consumption by 3% and lead to savings of $1,000 or more per truck per year.  What could your fleet do with that kind of cash? Bandag produces some of the lowest rolling resistance retreads. And Bandag FuelTech treads are among the most fuel-efficient of all tires, new or retread. Find your nearest Bandag dealer in Kalamazoo for fuel-efficient retreads for long-haul and regional service.
