Why Retread Tires?
Tires naturally wear out. But that doesn't mean their life is over. Tire casings can usually be used for much longer! Tire retreading is a safe alternative to shelling out the cash for new tires and carelessly tossing the old ones. Retreading is what it sounds like. It is the process of removing worn tread and replacing it with new tread. It involves a thorough inspection of the tire casing and if needed, any repairs. Only then can worn treads be replaced. Tire retreading can help you get more out of your trucking and OTR tires by giving them a new lease on life. You may also see the process called tire recapping or re-molding. Retreads can be installed on all truck tire positions, including steer.
