What is Retreading?
Simply put, retreading is the process whereby selected and inspected worn tires, called "casings," receieve a new tread.
Our retread process starts with a thorough initial inspection of casing for cuts, punctures, air pockets and other damage. Casings are repaired if necessary then are scanned for separations that might affect performance. Next the tires are buffed to remove the old, worn tread design.
Damaged materials are removed and final repairs are made. New tread rubber is bonded to the casing at low temperatures to avoid stress and distortion. Then a final inspection is performed to ensure the tire is in perfect operating condition.
If you are a fleet manager buying thousands of tires a year, costs must some how be controlled in today's stringent economy. Truckers, airlines, construction companies & farmers all purchase retread tires for one.
