What is retreaded tyre?

When a tyre has reached its intended service life (the first service life from new), whatever is left of the worn tread surface is removed and fresh new tread is attached, giving the tyre a new life. Retreading is the process that allows the tyre casing to be reused, to extend the useable life of the tyre.

Save Cost, Safety, Eco-Friendly
Reduce running cost

More often than not, tyre casings are usually still in good condition even after the main treads have worn out. Thus, the service life of tyre casing can be maximised through retreading.

At Bridgestone Bandag, we help you to significantly stretch your original investment dollar through retreading. And immediately reducing operating costs while maintaining performance and safety.

Safety with performance

Safety is the priority at Bridgestone Bandag. Out of the 10 steps in our retread process, 4 initial steps are focused on inspecting the used tyre and determining if it is the right candidate for retreading. The retreading process itself includes a final inspection to ensure safety. That's not all. Customers of Bridgestone Bandag also enjoy regular after-sales safety inspection by our trained technicians. Retread tyres are inspected for wear and tear as well as maintenance and advice on the correct use of retread tyres. This is the Bridgestone Bandag commitment to ensuring utmost safety for our users.

Environmental protection

Protection resources diagramCompared to new tyres, retread tyres require only 32% of the petroleum resources for production. Less than 1/2 of the rubber needed to make a new tyre is used to make a retread. Using retreads leads to reductions in CO2 emissions in the production process.

Retreading tyres also reduces the amount of industrial wastes. Bridgestone Bandag's retreading process minimises the environmental impact on our planet.
