Why Retread Tires?
Tires naturally wear out. But that doesn't mean they should be thrown in the trash. Tire casings can usually be used for much longer! Tire retreading is an economical alternative to blowing your budget on 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. Truck tire retreading can help you get more bang for your buck by giving your tires a second life. The process is also referred to as tire recapping or re-molding. Retread tires can be installed on all truck wheel positions, even steer.

Retread commercial truck tires are good to your fleet, bottom line, and the earth. The perks go on for miles! Since much of the original tire is retained during the retread process, the material cost for a retreated tire is usually lower than the cost of creating a brand new tire. That's one reason retread tires are so affordable.
