Whether you own a fleet of box trucks for your commercial business, or an 18-wheeler, it’s critical to get tire selection just right.

Consider the type of conditions, types of routes driven, the number of miles, and the typical weight of the load.

With the exception of certain off-the-road and earthmover tires, virtually any type of commercial tire can be retreaded. Retreading depends more on the condition of the casing than what position it was mounted in.
