New Size for Bandvulc BD5 Retread Tyre Revealed

Bandvulc BD5

Bandvulc is increasing the range of available sizes for its increasingly popular fifth-generation BD5 ultra-high mileage drive tyre. Launched at the inaugural 2022 Road Transport Expo, replacing the BD08 in the Fleetmaster range, the BD5 will now also be available as a 315/80 tyre from March.

Bandvulc Launch New Size for BD5 Tyre

Following its debut, the BD5 has quickly become a popular product among customers. Engineered with long-haul operators in mind, the BD5 combines the latest in innovation and design. The result is a dependable, high-performing retread tyre that boasts great sustainability credentials.

To maximise the BD5’s useable lifespan, Bandvulc utilises a purpose-formulated Long-Life Tread+ rubber compound. Its hard-wearing and thermal-resistant properties help customers maximise vehicle uptime and reduce routine service costs. In independent trials commissioned by Bandvulc, the BD5 tyre was proven to deliver a 40% increase in lifetime mileage when compared to the older BD08.

The BD5 also commands greater driving dynamics than its predecessor, thanks in part to a completely redesigned directional tread pattern. Through extensive testing and refinement during the development process, Bandvulc was able to achieve superior wet and dry handling, higher levels of real-world grip and exceptional water dispersion and stone ejection. Every BD5 is certified 3PMSF.

Tony Mailling, Head of Hot Retread Production EMEA and ContiLifeCycle Plant Manager, said: “It has always been our intention to grow the range of fitments available for the BD5 tyre and with its increased popularity are pleased to launch the second size.”
