What Are Retread Tires?
Tires naturally degrade over time. But that doesn't mean they should get thrown away. Tire casings often have plenty more miles of life to live—or roll! Tire retreading is a safe, 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. It involves a thorough inspection of the tire casing and if needed, any repairs. Only then can worn treads 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. Retreads can be installed on any wheel position, including steer.
