What Is Tire Retreading?
Tires naturally degrade over time. But that doesn't mean they should get thrown away. Tire casings can often keep rolling for many more miles. Tire retreading is an economical alternative to shelling out the cash for new tires and wastefully getting rid of the old ones. Retreading means replacing worn tire tread with new tire tread. The first step involves inspecting and repairing the tire casing. After this, the worn tread can be replaced. Tire retreading can help you get more out of your trucking and OTR tires by giving them a new lease on life. Some companies also refer to the process as tire re-molding or recapping. Retreads can be installed on all truck tire positions, including steer.
