Why Retread Tires?
Tires naturally degrade over time. But that doesn't mean they should get thrown away. Tire casings can usually be used for much longer! Tire retreading is a safe, economical alternative to blowing your budget on new tires and wastefully disposing of old ones. Retreading is the process of replacing the tread on worn tires. It involves a thorough inspection of the tire casing and if needed, any repairs. Only then can worn treads be replaced. 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 recapping or re-molding. Retread tires can be installed on all truck wheel positions, even steer.
