Bridgestone/Bandag Brazil has signed a contract with Balanceamento Automático to help promote the use of Counteract balancing beads to all their 107 associated Bridgestone / Bandag retreading shops in Brazil. Counteract balancing beads are designed to reduce operating temperature in truck tires.

Brazil truck and bus companies have to operate in extreme conditions and temperatures, and as a result, new tires and retreads usually wear out twice as fast and fail more often then in cooler climates.
