Have you considered retread tires for your commercial trucks fleet? Advances in technology have made retread tires a safe, quality option that delivers long-lasting, dependable performance. In the tire retreading process new tread is applied to the casings of worn tires. Tires casings used for retreading are carefully inspected and must meet required inspection standards.
1. Retreads are Safe
Did you know studies show that retread tires are just as safe as new tires? Retreaded tires are commonly used on emergency and public transportation vehicles such as ambulances, fire engines, and school buses, which require the highest degree of safety. Tire Retread & Repair Information Bureau reports that U.S. Department of Transportation statistics show nearly all tires involved in any tire related accidents are underinflated or bald. Whether new or retreaded, properly maintained tires do not cause accidents.
2. Retreads Save You Money
Retread tires offer an excellent value because they preserve the casing/tire body, which is the most costly part of the tire to manufacture. Today’s steel radial commercial tires are engineered to deliver multiple service intervals over the life of the casing. Since tires represent the largest part of budget expense in maintaining a commercial fleet, casing life is closely monitored by fleet managers. As tires become worn out and unsafe for the road, casings can be retreaded for a relatively low cost to extend the value of the tire investment.
3. Retread Tires Help to Save the Environment
Millions of old tires are dumped in landfills every year. Tire retreading saves decent tire casings from the scrap heap by making them useable for a longer time. Since retreading requires around 15 few gallons of oil per tire, tire retreading saves valuable resources. Along with the materials savings, carbon emissions and greenhouse gas produced in the manufacturing process is greatly reduced.
