Retreaded truck tires represent a savings of over $2 billion each year for North American trucking and transportation companies.
For most fleets, tires represent the largest item in their operating budget, right after labor and fuel costs.
The lowest possible cost-per-mile is achieved with a good tire management program that includes the use of high-quality retreads.
Retreads are the replacement tire of choice for most truckers. Of the replacement tires purchased by fleets last year, retreads equaled the number of new replacement tires.
Retreads are not only cost-effective, they are dependable, reliable, and safe. Retreads are used by truckers with scheduled delivery times, by overnight delivery companies, on commercial and military jets, and by most school bus operators.
Retreads are environmentally friendly. It takes over 20 gallons of oil to manufacture one new truck tire. It takes only 7 gallons of oil to produce a retread.
