The new offering is patterned after the Bridgestone brand R197 trailer radial introduced in May.
“We’re very excited about this debut,” said Chris Hoffman, manager of TBR & retread product marketing, BBTS. “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 design is Bandag’s longest-wearing 11/32nds depth product, offering excellent cost per mile, according to the company. The Bandag B197 is available from Bandag dealers in sizes that fit most trailer tire casings: 210mm, 220mm and 230mm.
