What Are Retread Tires?

Retread Tires Tires naturally degrade over time. 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 an economical, safe alternative to spending money on new tires and carelessly tossing the old ones. Retreading means replacing worn tire tread with new tire tread. It involves thoroughly inspecting and repairing a tire casing, then replacing worn tire treads with new ones. Tire retreading can help you get more out of your trucking and OTR tires by giving them a new lease on life. The process is also referred to as tire re-molding or recapping. Retreads can be installed on any wheel position, including steer.
