What Are 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 spending money on new tires and carelessly tossing the old ones. Retreading means replacing worn tire tread with new tire tread. The first step involves inspecting and repairing the tire casing. After this, the worn tread can be replaced. Truck tire retreading can help you get more bang for your buck by giving your tires a second life. Some companies also refer to the process as tire recapping or re-molding. Retread tires can be installed on all truck wheel positions, even steer.
