What Is Tire Retreading?
Tires naturally degrade over time. But that doesn't mean they should be thrown in the trash. Tire casings often have plenty more miles of life to live—or roll! Tire retreading is an economical alternative to shelling out the cash for new tires and carelessly tossing the old ones. Retreading is the process of replacing the tread on worn tires. It involves thoroughly inspecting and repairing a tire casing, then replacing worn tire treads with new ones. Tire retreading can help you get more out of your trucking and OTR tires by giving them a new lease on life. The process is also referred to as tire re-molding or recapping. Retreads can be installed on any wheel position, including steer.
