Fleets Retreading Truck Tires Too Quickly Waste Third of Value


Truck tire cas­ings have improved sig­nif­i­cant­ly over past sev­er­al years. Fleets no longer need to retread them on so short a cycle, often wast­ing as much as 1/3 of the tire tread life by pulling them for retread­ing with 10/32nd” tread left. Front heavy-duty steer tires are allowed to go to 4/32nd” and dri­ve tires 2/32nd”.
