Let’s face it, we all love buying new things—new smartphones, watches, televisions, shoes…I mean, the list is just endless. We always prefer things that are brand new and right out of the box, right? Sadly, this isn’t the best buying habit—financially, safety wise and reliably.
The stigma that surrounds the purchase of used or secondhand stuff is far from ending, but then the benefits of using recycled products are too numerous to count.
When you choose to buy retread tyres, you save money, safeguard the environment and ensure your safety on the road.
OK, so you know retreads are environmentally friendly—that’s from our last post here, but how about safety and cost-effectiveness? To say retreads save you money and ensure safety is absolutely true—get that fact before reading any further.
So why are truckers and consumers afraid of buying retreaded tyres? I blame it on the pervasive fallacies that retreads are not safe and feature a shorter lifespan compared to the traditional brand new tires. I know you are asking, is this true? Well, not quite!
The difference between a brand new tyre and a retreaded tyre is negligible because retreaded tires are manufactured using the same expectations and standards of the brand new tires, and hence you can expect them to perform just as good.
Truly, tyres are undoubtedly the most vital part of a motor vehicle. Have you ever imagined or even tried driving your car without them? Hell no! They are definitely the main feature in a vehicle’s functionality and a key factor to its safety.
In essence, having a set of durable and reliable tyres can either make or break your car’s driving experience.
If you’re looking to purchase new tyres, be sure to take time to consider available alternatives. It’s time to ditch the negative stigma about retreaded tyres and hit the road.
The performance of retreaded tyres is similar to that of the conventional tyres and their cost substantially lower than that of brand new tyres, making retreading an effective way to reduce your overall tyre cost and enhance your safety.
Commercial tyres are especially engineered for safe driving over high speeds, longer distances and heavy freight. Ideally, if retreaded tyres are well-inflated and maintained, they can last as long as the brand new ones.
Apparently, major global trucking companies and airlines are turning to retreaded tyres because of their reliability, cost saving and environmental friendliness. You should do the same.
How Safe Are Retreaded Tyres?
Majority of consumers are often confused by the aspects of price and safety. Just because you bought very expensive tyres does not necessarily make them safer than the cheaper ones.

Being an important part of your vehicle, your tyres deserve great care and maintenance—whether virgin or retread tyres. Proper maintenance go a long way in ensuring excellent performance for you, meaning you MUST take proper care of your tyres.
According to a 2009 study in the United States, in terms of failure rates, new tyres are not any better than retreaded tyres. Debris left on the roads comes from both retreads and brand new tyres.
In fact, according to the study, the five main causes of tyre failure on the roads were:
- Excessive heat
- Road hazards
- Manufacture defects
- Debris and operational issues
In essence, the primary cause of tyre failure on the US roads is tyres not inflated with the correct amount of pressure, and are either overloaded or used incorrectly.
Whether retreaded or brand new, a poorly maintained tyre cannot last for long. Tyres are like any other part on your motor vehicle. Without proper maintenance they will wear out really fast.
