Tire Retreading

Save money with our tire retreading system. Simply put, we select and inspect worn tires and give them new treads. Besides the money you save, you help the environment by recycling your tires. For instance, some tires can be retreaded up to ten times. The rubber from the retreads is shredded to make rubber mulch. Also, retreading uses significantly less oil than it takes to create a new tire.

What is a tire retread?

Before a tire can be retreaded, it must pass careful inspection to ensure the tire's casing can be reused. This rigorous inspection guarantees only the best used tires are retreaded. After inspection, we mechanically buffer the approved tires to the correct radius and diameter. Following the buffer, we attach the new tread to the tire through time, heat, pressure, and vulcanization. We then inspect the retreaded tires a second time, and finally, we trim and paint them for you.

Are retreaded tires safe?

Yes. We follow strict industry recommended practices throughout the entire retreading process. We take our time to provide quality service and guarantee that your retreaded tires have that "like new" reliability.

Fuel and tires are the two largest operating expenses in any commercial hauling operation. Commercial vehicles go through tires pretty quickly, and that is, of course, how tire expenses quickly add up to become such a big part of operating costs. That's why commercial tire retreading is such a popular option for fleets. Only select, structurally-intact tire casings are used for retreads. The worn tread is removed by buffing, and the new tread surface is bonded to the tire with heat and adhesives, much like the manufacture of a new tire.

Why Choose Toce Brothers for Tire Retreading?

  • Cost -- much of the manufacturing cost with new tires is in the casing. Retreads can cost as little as 30-50% as much as a new commercial tire.
  • Environment -- every retread tire means one less tire going into a landfill...plus every new commercial tire requires as much as 22 gallons of oil to manufacture, while tire retreading only uses around seven gallons.
  • Safety -- it's a misconception that tire retreading results in less-reliable tire. All commercial airlines and military aircraft use retreaded tires, as well as many large long- haul trucking operations today. Commercial tire retreading plants are bound to stringent quality control and manufacturing best-practices, and most are franchised or licensed with major brand suppliers.

In many cases, truck tires are retreaded three times or more...a tire that started out at steer axle duty might be retreaded and moved back to the drive axle, and retreaded again and moved back to a trailer axle. We work with you to ensure the retreaded tire meets your specifications for features and safety. Why continue to spend money on new tires or repairs on worn tires?
