Why retreading is more relevant then ever

Rethinking retreading

Retreading is not new to fleet managers. But with growing pressure to be more sustainable – and the changing attitudes of fleet managers who want to play their part in helping the environment – it is a practice that is being seen in a different way.

Good for the planet. Good for the business.

While the environmental benefits of retreading are top of the agenda right now, let’s not forget that it makes good business sense too:


It will save you money

Transport companies who use regrooving and retreading pay up to 10% less overall* for their tyres. Why pay more to buy new every time?


It is what your customers want

Consumers increasingly prefer to buy ‘green’ brands. From ‘green’ shops and suppliers. This is the way every consumer market is heading and your customers want you to help them build that reputation for sustainability. If you are not retreading and regrooving, you may lose the next tender to a competitor who does...


It is easy and without risk

High-quality retreads are available from your expert Truckforce dealer for most sizes and with different business models adapted to your needs.

How does Goodyear Retreading help you maximise the life of a tyre?

Goodyear retreading solution increases trye life 150%


Thanks to regrooving and retreading, your Goodyear tyre can extend its life by up to 150%. As the tyre approaches the end of its lifespan, a first regrooving is done by a TruckForce specialist. This first regrooving increases the tyre’s life by 25%. After that wears away, the casing can be sent to Goodyear for a retread, which lasts just as long as a new tyre. Finally, when the retread has worn down, a second and final regrooving can extend the tyre’s life by another 25%. More than double the lifespan of a single tyre, thanks to Goodyear retreading
