Retread | All Videos

Retreading involves removing used tire treads and applying freshly vulcanized new treads so that the body of the tire can be reused safely. Retreading not only helps to reduce the total cost of tires, but also makes a major environmental contribution in terms of the more effective utilization of natural resources.
