Bridgestone’s drive retreads

Bridgestone bandqBridgestone’s Bandag DR 5.3 and DR 4.3 retreads for drive applications are suited for truckload, less-than-truckload and pickup-and-delivery applications. The DR 5.3 closed-shoulder pattern for over-the-road applications features a solid shoulder to facilitate long tread life and uniform wear; a lug pattern designed for stronger traction; stone rejecters to help prevent stone drilling; and a proprietary compound that contributes to durability and wear life. The DR 4.3 open-shoulder pattern for a variety of demanding on- and mild off-road applications features a wide center rib for added stability and even wear; an open shoulder that helps enhance evacuation and traction in adverse weather conditions, along with a strong grip for chains; and a proprietary compound that contributes to long even wear and durability.
