Recapping vs. Regrooving vs. Retreading

If you're new to retreading, you may have seen some different terms thrown around online. Here's a quick lowdown on tire recap, regrove, and retread services:

  • Recapping is an old industry term for what is now more commonly called tire retreading.

  • Regrooving is a process that makes use of existing tread depth by adding new grooves to the original rubber. Besides some safety concerns, the regrooving process greatly reduces the likelihood of that tire being eligible for retread in the future.

  • Retreading, also known as recapping, involves buffing away the original tire tread, and applying a new layer of tread.

We know tire retreads work and promote them as an affordable alternative to buying new commercial tires. Of course, when your retread tires are completely finished, you can always find new commercial tires for sale at affordable prices at your local Bob Sumerel Tire.
