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 the process of replacing the tread on worn tires. The first step involves inspecting and repairing the tire casing. After this, the worn tread can be replaced. Tire retreading gives your truck tires a second life, so you get more value out of your investment. Some companies also refer to the process as tire recapping or re-molding. Retreads can be installed on any wheel position, including steer.
