Why Retread Tires?
Tires naturally wear out. But that doesn't mean they should get thrown away. Tire casings can often keep rolling for many more miles. 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. The first step involves inspecting and repairing the tire casing. After this, the worn tread can be replaced. Tire retreading can help you get more out of your trucking and OTR tires by giving them a new lease on life. Some companies also refer to the process as tire recapping or re-molding. Retreads can be installed on all truck tire positions, including steer.
