Advantage of STTC’s Truck Tire Retreading

  • 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.
