Retreading tires provides the absolute lowest cost per mile of any tire management strategy. When coupled with other enhanced preventive maintenance measures, a retreaded tire can easily go half a million miles or more. According to the 2013 Modern Tire Dealer Facts Issue, the average price of a new truck tire is $425; the average price of a retreaded truck tire, including the casing, is $230.
Successful truck tire retreaders know that preparing a casing for retreading is an exact science. The visual inspection of a used truck tire is not enough to make sure all the flaws and nail holes have been detected.
Purcell Tire has invested in pressure testing equipment as the final method of performing casing inspection to verify radial sidewall strength. With the purchase of the Mattuezzi G100 Machine (also called the “Boom Box” because of the loud sound made if a tire ruptures at the highest inflation stage), we analyze three stages of visual inspections.
Different inflation pressures are used during the three inspection stages, which are measured at 25 psi, 65 psi and 115 psi. Inspecting a casing under pressure as the final step can help identify tread and casing separations, missed repairs, other tire deformities and off-center treads.
