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, economical alternative to shelling out the cash for new tires and wastefully getting rid of 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. You may also see the process called tire re-molding or recapping. Retreads can be installed on all truck tire positions, including steer.
