Why Retread Tires?
Tires naturally degrade over time. But that doesn't mean they should be thrown in the trash. Tire casings often have plenty more miles of life to live—or roll! Tire retreading is a safe alternative to blowing your budget on 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 gives your truck tires a second life, so you get more value out of your investment. The process is also referred to as tire re-molding or recapping. Retreads can be installed on any wheel position, including steer.

Retread truck tires are great for your bottom line, your fleet, and the environment. The perks go on for miles!
