What Is Tire Retreading?
Tires naturally wear out. 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, economical alternative to blowing your budget on new tires and carelessly tossing the old ones. Retreading is the process of replacing the tread on worn tires. The first step involves inspecting and repairing the tire casing. After this, the worn tread can be replaced. Truck tire retreading can help you get more bang for your buck by giving your tires a second life. You may also see the process called tire recapping or re-molding. Retreads can be installed on all truck tire positions, including steer.
