Why Retread Tires?
Tires naturally wear out. But that doesn't mean their life is over. Tire casings often have plenty more miles of life to live—or roll! Tire retreading is a safe, economical alternative to spending money on new tires and wastefully getting rid of the old ones. Retreading means replacing worn tire tread with new tire tread. It involves a thorough inspection of the tire casing and if needed, any repairs. Only then can worn treads be replaced. Truck tire retreading can help you get more bang for your buck by giving your tires a second life. Some companies also refer to the process as tire recapping or re-molding. Retreads can be installed on any wheel position, including steer.
