How Does Retreading Save Me Money?
New truck tyres need a lot of raw resources and man hours; this is why a new set of tyres can cost a considerable amount of money. However, a retreaded tyre only needs a limited amount of raw materials and does not take long to make, which means that retreading will cost a lot less money than obtaining new tyres all together.
Customers should also consider that the majority of tyre manufacturers create each of their tyres with the expectation they are going to be retreaded at one point. This is why many businesses tend to choose retreading instead of purchasing new tyres, since the retreaded version of the tyre in question is just as safe as a new one, but saves them a lot of money in the process.
Why Is Retreading Good for the Environment?
Retreading can be seen as a form of tyre recycling, hence why many people refer to tyre retreading as an environmentally friendly solution. By disposing an old tyre, you would be throwing away valuable resources that can be reused. This is why most people tend to reuse and retread their tyres for as long as possible.
Another interesting fact about a retreaded truck tyre is the fact that is saves approximately 68 litres of oil. To make a new truck tyre, the manufacturer would need 68 additional litres of oil in order to create the new tyre. By retreading your truck tyre instead of buying a new one, you immediately contribute to the environment by saving one of the world’s most valuable resources – oil.
