What Is Tire Retreading?
Tires wear down over time. It's natural! But that doesn't mean they should be thrown in the trash. Tire casings often have plenty more miles of life to live—or roll! Tire retreading is an economical alternative to blowing your budget on new tires and carelessly tossing the old ones. Retreading is the process of replacing the tread on worn tires. It involves thoroughly inspecting and repairing a tire casing, then replacing worn tire treads with new ones. Tire retreading gives your truck tires a second life, so you get more value out of your investment. You may also see the process called tire re-molding or recapping. Retreads can be installed on any wheel position, including steer.
