Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions (BBTS), a division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, is introducing a new premium Bandag brand B197 trailer tread design. The new offering is patterned after the Bridgestone brand R197 trailer radial that was introduced May 18, 2010.

Chris Hoffman, manager, TBR and retread product marketing, BBTS, said, “It’s the first time BBTS has launched a Bridgestone new tire and Bandag companion retread. Many fleet customers tell us they are looking for a seamless choice of new tires and retread designs. The Bridgestone R197 new trailer tire and the Bandag B197 tread design simplify the choice.”

The B197 tread is built for long life; combining innovative compounding and a classic straight-rib tread design. The B197 tread design is Bandag’s longest-wearing 11/32" depth product, offering superior cost per mile.

The Bandag B197 is available from Bandag dealers in sizes that fit most trailer tire casings: 210, 220, and 230 mm. For more information on the B197 tread, visit www.bandag.com or call 1-800-523-6366, ext 6.
