Why Retread Tires?
Tires wear down over time. It's natural! 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 alternative to shelling out the cash for new tires and wastefully disposing of 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. 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 recapping or re-molding. Retread tires can be installed on all truck wheel positions, even steer.
