Retreads Change the game

Maximize tire performance and reduce total costs by retreading a premium Bridgestone tire with a Bandag retread. This practice has been proven to increase fuel efficiency, extend the life of the casing, and maximize tire performance, which saves fleets millions of dollars annually.

Fleets We Depend On

Firemen, bus drivers and national fleets choose Bandag retreads over new tires. Retreads save time, money and valuable resources to earn the loyalty of the fleets we depend on. Your hard-working fleet deserves tires that share your work ethic.
