Why Retread Tires?
Tires wear down over time. It's natural! 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 spending money on new tires and carelessly tossing the old ones. Retreading is what it sounds like. It is the process of removing worn tread and replacing it with new tread. It involves a thorough inspection of the tire casing and if needed, any repairs. Only then can worn treads 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 re-molding or recapping. Retread tires can be installed on all truck wheel positions, even steer.
