DÉBOULONNER LE MYTHE : COÛT DES PNEUS RECHAPÉS ET ÉCONOMIES POUR LE PARC

FAITS À RETENIR

  • The cost of a retread tire is usually between 30 and 50 percent of the comparable new tire price
  • The savings from retread tires should be considered part of the overall tire investment

UNDERSTANDING RETREAD TIRES

To see how you and your fleet can benefit from retread tires, it is important to understand exactly what retread tires are and how they differ from new tires.

Retread tires, also known as remolded or recapped tires, are remanufactured through a process where the worn tread is removed from an out-of-service tire casing and a new tread is affixed to help extend the life of the tire. The tire casing is the entire body of the tire that doesn’t include the tread and belt system. Nearly one-half of all replacement tires in the North American truck tire market are retreads, and for good reasons.

HOW MUCH DO RETREAD TIRES COST?

The cost savings of purchasing retread tires can be explained by the process involved to produce them. Most of the manufacturing cost of a new tire is in the tire body or casing. The tread (the portion of the tire that meets the road) represents only a percentage of the new tire cost. This means that the cost of a retread tire is usually between 30 and 50 percent of the comparable new tire price.

RETREADS PROVIDE LONG TERM RETURN

The cost of the retread tire should not be the only consideration when calculating the cost of a retread program. By using retreaded tires, the commercial trucking industry saves over 3 $ billion each year. Retreading is an effective way to lower your fleet costs due to the following benefits.

LONGER WEAR

Retreading lengthens the lifetime value of a tire and provides longer wear than new tires can offer. Vous pouvez vous attendre à ce que la nouvelle génération de pneus rechapés Bandag d'aujourd'hui ait un rendement égal à celui d'un pneu neuf de qualité, sinon meilleur. Un pneu rechapé de qualité assure le même kilométrage que de nombreux pneus neufs. If a casing can be retreaded more than once it will deliver even longer wear.

FEWER NEW TIRE PURCHASES

Opting for retreads can save a fleet from the cost associated with buying net new tires every year for a large portion of their fleet. The cost of the retreads will also be less and ultimately the number of tires you purchase will be lower over the lifetime of your trucks.

SAME PERFORMANCE YOU EXPECT

The latest commercial retreads come with the same performance you expect from a new tire along with the same quality level of support from Bandag. Le rechapage, combiné à un programme proactif de gestion des pneus, vous permet de maximiser votre investissement initial en prolongeant la durée de vie des pneus une fois que la bande est usée.

COMPARABLE FUEL MILEAGE

Retread tires can provide similar or better fuel efficiency than new tires. Bandag SmartWay® verified FuelTech retreads are among the lowest rolling resistance retreads available, providing some of the best fuel efficiency available from retreads. Retread a fuel-efficient casing  with FuelTech and the benefits go even further.
