Why Retread Tires?
Tires naturally degrade over time. But that doesn't mean their life is over. 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. 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. The process is also referred to as tire recapping or re-molding. Retreads can be installed on all truck tire positions, including steer.
