Through our partnership, S&R is able to offer those first-class retread tires and services to our customers.
Control Your Tire Costs
Regardless of the size or type of fleet you manage – commercial trucking, heavy construction equipment, emergency vehicles, or any other – you can safely lower your tire costs by using retreads. Using the state-of-the-art Bandag process, we are able to retread a quality tire, multiple times, at a fraction of the cost of new tires. For maximum efficiency, take advantage of our Fleet Management Services, and let us make sure that your fleet has the tires you need, right when you need them.
Retreads Are Green
Manufacturing one new truck tire requires approximately 26 gallons of petroleum product. Retreading the same tire requires only about 6 gallons. In addition, the energy used in the retread process is much lower than that needed to produce a complete tire, and retreading helps reduce waste in landfills. S&R takes great pride in reducing oil and energy consumption, and we recycle the byproducts of our retread process to further reduce our environmental impact. By purchasing retread tires, your company will be contributing to a cleaner environment, and a greener reputation.
Just Like New
While it is true that not all retreads are equal, Bandag retreads from S&R have the same level of reliability and dependability as a brand new tire. Our retread facility utilizes the latest computerized technology to test, prepare, and retread tires to the highest standards. Independent studies have consistently shown that retreads are no more likely to fail, and cause no more “rubber on the road,” than new tires. In fact, most tire-dependent industries, including package delivery companies, fire and EMS services, even racing teams, have been safely using retreads for decades. All of our retreads include a 4-year warranty against workmanship and material failures, and a 2-year warranty against casing defects.
S&R offers EPA SmartWay Verified Low Rolling Resistance Retreads for drive and trailer tire positions.
Even if you decide not to use retread tires, you can still participate in our buy-back programs. In many cases, we can give you credit when you trade in a used tire that can be processed by our retreading facility. Ask your sales associate for details.
