environmental benefits of  Retreading​

Tire retreading is one of the most environmentally-friendly industries in the world and our sustainability benefits are hard to beat.

Consider these points:


  • Retreading conserves oil. The synthetic rubber components in a new medium truck tire require approximately 22 gallons of oil, but it takes only 7 gallons to retread the same tire. 

  • Nearly 300 million tires from cars and trucks are thrown away by Americans each year, but the use of retreads keeps millions of tires out of landfill.

  • Retreading has positive impacts on all areas of the environment, including reducing:

    • CO2 emissions

    • Natural resource extraction

    • Water consumption

    • Air pollution

    • Land use

  • You can see below the environmental impact that one year of commercial truck retreading has in the US:
