What Are 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 usually be used for much longer! Tire retreading is an economical alternative to spending money on 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. 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 re-molding or recapping. Retreads can be installed on any wheel position, including steer.
Advantages of Tire Retreading

Most importantly, they perform similar to new tires, but at a fraction of the cost.* They help lower tire waste, millions of gallons of oil, and overall operating costs. Retread truck tires are positive for your fleet, your bottom line, and the environment. They're pretty hard to beat! The material cost for a retreaded tire is generally less that of making a new tire, and much of the original tire by weight is retained. That's one of the main reasons retread tire prices are so low.
