Why Use Retreads?

Why Use Retreads?

Since most of the cost of a new tire is in the casing, retreading saves you money with every mile. Bottom line, retreads are a fraction of the cost of new tires. Beyond that, retreading gives you more tread options to meet your specific needs. On the green side of things, retreads reduce waste in landfills.

Marangoni® Ringtread

The Ringtread system provides a spliceless retread that matches the original curvature of the casings reducing rolling resistance, and features exceptional appearance, performance, and traction.

Pre-Cure

Les Schwab offers precure retreads that apply vulcanized tread rubber to a processed tire casing. This reconditions the tire for second or third use.

Quality Control
