Winter Recap Tires in Franklin
Northern fleets can't afford to sit on the sidelines when it's cold and icy. And southern fleets can't either. With retread tires from your Franklin 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 improve traction when put to work on tandem axle drive applications in less-than-truckload and truckload service. No other tire retreader has the training, testing, and history of Bandag. Our retread tires give you confidence and grip in wintry temperatures, flurries, or sleet.
Franklin All-Season Retread Truck Tires
Bandag retread truck tires are designed to give your vehicles superior traction in all seasons. 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 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 pattern enhances ice handling and traction, and a unique center tie bar stabilizes the center of the footprint. But don't let all these features have you worried about a rough ride. Bandag all-season retread truck tires reduce road noise to boost ride comfort.
Fuel-Efficient Truck Tires in Franklin
Fuel costs are one of the most significant expenses for owner-operators and fleet managers. That's why plenty of trucking businesses choose low rolling resistance tires over regular truck tires. As tire rolling resistance decreases, fuel savings increase. We crunched the numbers. Studies have shown that a 10% reduction in Crr (a measurement of rolling resistance) can reduce fuel consumption by 3%, and lead to savings of $1,000 or more per truck per year.  How could your fleet benefit from that? Bandag makes some of the industry's lowest rolling resistance retread tires. And Bandag FuelTech treads are among the most fuel-efficient of all tires, new or retread. Visit your local Bandag dealer in Franklin for fuel-efficient tires for long-haul and regional service. 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. Read the full study on lowering fleet costs.
