Bandag now offers Bandag Drive Severe Service 2 (BDY2) in the North American market, a retread tire specifically engineered for conditions where superior traction is required from a drive position tire.

"We understand that keeping fleets up and running on time is critical to the oil field and logging industries. BDY2 is a next-generation design offering more aggressive traction than its predecessor," says Chris Hoffman, product manager for global tire products at Bandag. "Our retread tire design complements the new Bridgestone M775 on/off highway radial tires and has rapidly been put into use by fleets in both Canada and the western United States."
The Bandag BDY2 32/32nd features an extra deep block and open shoulders to meet these fleets' need for aggressive traction.
Bandag is the operating name of Bridgestone Bandag LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Bridgestone Americas Holding Inc. Bandag manufactures retreading materials and equipment for its worldwide network of more than 800 franchised dealers.
