What is Retreading?


Simply put, retreading is the process whereby selected and inspected worn tires, 

called "casings,” receive a new tread. 

Only sound, carefully inspected tire casings are used for retreading. 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. There are different processing techniques, but the ultimate objective is always the same - affixing a new tread through the application of heat, time and pressure.
