Why Retread Tires?
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 wastefully disposing of old ones. Retreading is the process of replacing the tread on worn tires. 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. You may also see the process called tire recapping or re-molding. Retreads can be installed on all truck tire positions, including steer.
