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 an economical alternative to spending money on new tires and wastefully getting rid of the old ones. Retreading means replacing worn tire tread with new tire tread. It involves thoroughly inspecting and repairing a tire casing, then replacing worn tire treads with new ones. Tire retreading gives your truck tires a second life, so you get more value out of your investment. The process is also referred to as tire recapping or re-molding. Retreads can be installed on any wheel position, including steer.
