Why 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 wastefully disposing of old ones. Retreading is what it sounds like. It is the process of removing worn tread and replacing it with new tread. 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. The process is also referred to as tire recapping or re-molding. Retreads can be installed on all truck tire positions, including steer.
