Our tire retreading services are designed specifically for commercial and industrial vehicles, from medium trucks to heavy-duty tractor trailers and construction equipment. Retreading or recapping tires can save you nearly 50% the cost of purchasing a brand new set of tires. For fleet managers, retreading services for commercial tires can significantly reduce operating costs without sacrificing the reliability and dependability of the tires. At Skowhegan Tire Center, our tire retreading services serve customers in Waterville, ME, Fairfield, ME, Skowhegan, ME, and other surrounding areas.
Purchasing a new set of tires is the number one maintenance cost when operating a commercial fleet. When a tire seems worn and ready for the scrap pile, be sure to check the condition of the casing, because tire retreading services may be able to extend the useful life of that tire.
When our tire technicians prepare a tire for retreading, they carefully inspect each casing before the worn tread is buffed away and new tread is effectively bonded onto the tire body through a process involving a combination of heat and pressure. The tire retreading process at our facility is made possible through the use of state of the art equipment and extremely knowledgeable, detail-oriented tire technicians.
Many tire casings have the potential for multiple tread lives, so it’s important to monitor the life of the tire casing when deciding whether or not retreading services are right for that tire. Most major tire companies would agree that a tire should be pulled for retreading when it reaches 6/32nds tread depth in order to maximize the casing life of the tire.
Our service staff will conduct a complete inspection of the tires in question at our retread facility, where we can make a more educated recommendation on the best way to take full advantage of our professional retreading services.
