Retreading tires is significantly less expensive than buying new tires and generally last as long as new tires used in similar applications. Many tire casings, especially those with all-steel wire body and belt construction, can be retreaded more than once. Commercial Tire Service uses three different methods for retreading a casing:

Precure
Commercial Tire Service delivers only the highest quality Goodyear precure retreads to commercial truck fleets. Vulcanized tread rubber is firmly bonded to a buffed casing and placed in a curing chamber where the tread becomes securely adhered to the tire. The result is a NEXT-TRED retread that is very similar to a new tire.

Mold Cure
In our mold cure system, non-vulcanized tread rubber is applied to a buffed tire. The tire is then heated in a mold, where the rubber vulcanizes and forms the new tread design. After the mold cure process is completed, we examine the tire. This final inspection ensures that only tires that meet our high standards leave the retread plant. The mold cure tire is then returned to its fleet, and can be brought back for a second or third retreading.

UniCircle
Like the name implies, each UniCircle retread features a solid, seamless construction as well as uniform tire characteristics and dimensions. This promotes even tread wear and low rolling resistance, the two biggest keys in cost-effective performance.

Precure Retread

Precure Retread Process
Goodyear delivers only the highest quality precure retreads to commercial truck fleets. That's because we carefully monitor every stage of the precure retreading process, from primary assessment to final inspection.
During Goodyear's precure process, vulcanized tread rubber is firmly bonded to a buffed casing and placed in a curing chamber where the tread becomes securely adhered to the tire. The result is a NEXT-TRED retread that is very similar to a new tire.
