Deforest Winter Retread Tires
Northern fleets can't wait for temperatures to warm when ice blankets the road. 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 Deforest Bandag dealer. You need tires that are engineered to push through the harshest conditions, like the traction-based BDR-W retread tire. BDR-W tires are specifically made to perform on tandem axle drive applications in truckload and less-than-truckload service. Bandag stands apart from other tire recappers, thanks to our training, testing, and legacy. Our commercial retread tires offer confident handling in frigid temperatures, sheets of sleet, and flurries of snow.
Deforest 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. Let's look at one of our most popular all-season retread tires to help explain. 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. But don't let all these features have you worried about a rough ride. Bandag all-season retread tires decrease road noise and increase comfort.
Find Fuel-Efficient Truck Tires in Deforest
Many fleet managers and owner-operators would consider fuel to be one of their biggest recurring expenses. That's why plenty of trucking businesses choose low rolling resistance tires over regular truck tires. The lower the tire rolling resistance, the lower the fuel costs. 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 fleet do with that kind of cash? Bandag manufactures some of the lowest rolling resistance recap tires. And Bandag FuelTech treads are among the most fuel-efficient of all tires, new or retread. Visit your local Bandag dealer in Deforest for fuel-efficient tires for pickup-and-delivery, truckload, and less-than-truckload applications. We can accommodate almost any axle configuration.
