What Are Retread Tires?
Tires naturally degrade over time. But that doesn't mean their life is over. Tire casings can usually be used for much longer! Tire retreading is an economical alternative to shelling out the cash for new tires and carelessly tossing the 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 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. Retread tires can be installed on all truck wheel positions, even steer.
