We provide training second to none which allows our staff to produce thousands of retreads each year at our Nacogdoches facility.
Retreaded truck tires represent a savings of over $2 billion dollars annually for truckers and trucking companies in North America. For most fleets, tires represent the third largest item in their operation 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 quality retreads. Retreads are the replacement tire of choice for truckers and fleets who purchase more than 18 million retreads annually in the United State and Canada.
Retreads are 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. With some impressive environmental benefits, like the conservation of hundreds of millions of gallons of oil, truck tire retreading may be one of the most successful recycling efforts in North America. At 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of a new truck tire, a quality retread delivers comparable wear and performance at a fraction of the cost.
