How to give your truck and bus tyres several new lives.
What is retreading?
Retreading means replacing a tyre's worn tread with a new tread. It is perfect for fleets that want to cut their operating costs and environmental footprint.
MICHELIN is a pioneer: it has been retreading tyres for nearly a century and is always developing its innovative technology. MICHELIN casings in various ranges are designed to be retreaded several times. With professional management aimed at meeting your business needs, MICHELIN can help you reduce your environmental footprint and maximise your profitability without compromising safety.

To add more value to your business over the long run
• A retreaded tyre costs 40% less than an equivalent new tyre.
• Get up to twice as many miles out of your tyres: a tyre can potentially be retreaded several times, for even more mileage potential and to make your tyres last longer.
• Adapt your tread to your needs and uses: up to 350 combinations of casings and tread are available!
Retreading saves natural resources, so it helps to protect the environment
• Reduction of CO2 emissions: Retreading 100 tyres saves 5 tonnes of materials and means more than 6 tonnes of CO2 are not released into the atmosphere.
• Less material consumed: 1 retreading = 50 kilos of raw materials saved. On average, just 20 kilos of materials are added to a casing, a 70% saving compared to a newly manufactured tyre!
• Less waste: around 300 kilos less for a three-axle trailer.
• Retreading 6 tyres for 3 axles means 6 fewer tyres to be recycled!
