MUSCATINE, IA (August 12, 2008) Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions (BBTS) announced today it has expanded its line of Continuum brand retread materials for use by retreaders serving fleets with off-the-road equipment. Continuum retread tire design C1072 for 23.5, 26.5 and 29.5 size tires is for use on articulated dump trucks, loaders, dozers and graders.
Continuum C1072 For Off-Road Construction Fleets
Optimized for use on radial casings, this non-directional design features an aggressive lug pattern for superior traction. Continuum C1072 emulates the Bridgestone VMT tire design. “Continuum C1072 matches the new tire tread depth, allowing fleets to mate retreads and new tires of similar designs,” says Mike Poirier, North American OTR Sales Manager, BBTS.
“As off-the-road fleets continue to face a tire shortage in large and giant sizes, fleets should consider using retread tires to maximize the use of their existing casing assets,” he said. “The cost of retreading a tire can be up to 50 percent of the cost of a new tire. Retread tires are an important addition to a well-managed tire program as they allow fleets to maximize their inventory and lower their cost-per-hour of operation.”
Continuum brand retread materials for off-the-road equipment are supplied by agreement through OTR retreaders. Continuum retread tire designs are used on a wide variety of equipment in the construction, mining, logging, utility and marine port industries.
