Did you know the term ‘remould’ is not actually an industry-recognised title? Due to modern advancements of materials and technology, the contemporary system of rejuvenating a worn tyre casing is ‘Retreading’ – this has been the case for more than 25years.
Globally, Retread Tyres make up a multi-billion-dollar industry. In the commercial tyre industry, taxi trade included, Retread Tyres are well and truly here to stay!
How Safe Are Retread Tyres?
In a nutshell, the answer is VERY! Despite popular myth, Retreaded tyres are manufactured to high standards, using highly sophisticated machinery. Since January, 2004 it has been a legal requirement for Retreads to be manufactured according to ECE Regulations 108 (car tyres) and 109 (commercial vehicles tyres); which stipulates that tyres are tested to the same load and speed criteria as brand new tyres.
Did you know? 80% of the world’s airlines run on Retread Tyres!
