I bet by now you know that retreaded tyres cost half as much as new tyres meaning they are worth your every penny.
Well, there’s no denying it—most people love buying new things including tyres. But then, one of the debates in the commercial trucking industry that has refused to go away is whether to buy new or retreaded tyres when replacing tyres.
While both do offer fleet managers their own bunch of benefits, one thing is for sure, retreads are cheaper than standard tyres yet they perform as good as new tyres, ultimately saving you a lot on repair and maintenance budgets.
As a matter of fact, the cost of purchasing tyres constitutes about 4 per cent of the total operating cost of a fleet. And the condition of tyres determines the fuel consumption ability of the vehicle which usually takes nearly a quarter of the overall cost.
Today, major leading tyre manufacturing companies are integrating certified retreading programs in their products and services. And this explains just why retreads are becoming cheaper than new ones as they also take about three times less oil to produce than a new one.
It’s no wonder an increasing number of trailer and truck owners choose to buy cheaper tyres after their regeneration.
During manufacture, retreaded tyres utilize original casing with fresh tread rubber. The tyre retreading process also involves quality standards as those used in manufacture of new tyres in terms of safety, durability and tread-depth but since the casing is re-used, they become less expensive than brand new tyres.
Ultimately, the option to retread your tyres can save you a considerable sum of your operations cost thereby boosting your bottom line.
Considering that retreaded tyres repurpose parts from old tyres, they are more ecologically friendly than their brand new counterparts. This enables fleet managers to play their part of saving the environment in a sector that is often accused of greatly contributing to the overall carbon footprint.
