The advancement in retreading technology and processes in the past two decades has delivered significant value to fleet owners.
Today, retreaded tyres are made to standards that give new tyres a run for their price. And this is not only in terms of great cost savings but also ecological advantages too.
Being cost-efficient and reliable and featuring excellent quality similar to those of brand new tyres, retreads have in recent years gained more popularity and moved to become the No.1 choice for most motorists in the country.
Each day thousands of tyres across SA are saved from landfills and put back to service through the process of retreading. And there’s no doubt that retreads are a better option for new tyres, thanks to the countless benefits of retreads.
Considering that most major truck tyre manufacturers produce tyres for several lifespans, it means tyres are designed to be retreaded. As such, when motorists fail to retread their worn-out tyres, they are simply throwing away money.
Since some of the major tyre manufacturers like Michelin, Bridgestone and Goodyear are already including retreading as one of their main products meaning retreads are the future that is already here with us.
Interestingly, more and more fleet owners and managers are turning to retreaded tyres in their quest to cut running costs per kilometre and ultimately improve their bottom lines.
In addition, retreads are proven to be safe and durable when compared to standard tyres as long as retreaded tyres are produced by a reputable retreading company which does not compromise on the quality of its processes and materials.
As a way of saving on their budgets, most truck fleet plans nowadays involve having the casings of new tyres retreaded twice or thrice as a routine part of saving on their maintenance budgets.
