Why Retread Tires?
Tires wear down over time. It's natural! But that doesn't mean they should be thrown in the trash. Tire casings can often keep rolling for many more miles. Tire retreading is a safe alternative to shelling out the cash for new tires and carelessly tossing the old ones. Retreading means replacing worn tire tread with new tire tread. It involves thoroughly inspecting and repairing a tire casing, then replacing worn tire treads with new ones. Truck tire retreading can help you get more bang for your buck by giving your tires a second life. The process is also referred to as tire recapping or re-molding. Retreads can be installed on any wheel position, including steer.
