What Is Tire Retreading?
Tires wear down over time. It's natural! But that doesn't mean they should get thrown away. Tire casings can often keep rolling for many more miles. Tire retreading is a safe alternative to spending money on new tires and wastefully getting rid of the old ones. Retreading means replacing worn tire tread with new tire tread. It involves a thorough inspection of the tire casing and if needed, any repairs. Only then can worn treads be replaced. Truck tire retreading can help you get more bang for your buck by giving your tires a second life. The process is also referred to as tire recapping or re-molding. Retread tires can be installed on all truck wheel positions, even steer.
