Retreading Facts

Seven things you need to know about retreads:

  1. Retreaded truck tires represent a savings of over $2 billion dollars annually for truckers and trucking companies in North America.
  2. For most fleets, tires represent the third largest item in their operating budget, right after labor and fuel costs.
  3. The lowest possible cost-per-mile is achieved with a good tire management program that includes the use of quality retreads.
  4. Retreads are the replacement tire of choice for most truckers. Of the 32.9 million replacement tires purchased by fleets in 2001, 17.1 million were retreads and  about 15.8 million were new replacement tires.
  5. Retreads are not only cost effective, but they are also dependable, reliable and safe. Retreads are used by truckers with scheduled delivery times, small package delivery companies with guaranteed delivery times, on commercial and military jets and by most school bus operators.
  6. Retreads are also environmentally friendly. Tires are basically petrochemical products. It takes 22 gallons of oil to manufacture one new truck tire. Most of the oil is found in the casing, which is reused in the retreading process. As a result, it takes only 7 gallons of oil to produce a retread.
  7. Retreaders, like trucking companies, have experienced considerable consolidation. Today, the most successful retreaders are those with the highest quality products, delivering the best possible return on investment to the fleets. Because of the competitive nature of the retreading industry, truckers can expect to see continuous improvement in quality, durability and reliability, as the major retread suppliers annually invest millions of dollars in research and development.
