Why 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 blowing your budget on new tires and wastefully getting rid of 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. Some companies also refer to the process as tire recapping or re-molding. Retreads can be installed on all truck tire positions, including steer.
