Retreading

Retreading in

If you’re a fleet manager buying thousands of tires a year, offers tire retreading services that can help save money without compromising tire quality.

Retreading is the process whereby selected and inspected worn tires, called “casings,” receive a new tread. The worn tread is buffed away and a new tread bonded to the tire body in a process very similar to the manufacture of a new tire.
