Accordingly, how many years do truck tires last?
Many automakers, including Ford, Nissan and Mercedes-Benz, tell owners to replace tires six years after their production date, regardless of tread life. Tire manufacturers such as Continental and Michelin say a tire can last up to 10 years provided you get annual tire inspections after the fifth year.
Secondly, how often do you change semi truck tires? All the turning and engine power they're subjected to means they usually have to be replaced around 150,000 miles, which is anywhere from a year to a year-and-a-half of operation. Drive tires can last longer, 350,000 to 500,000 miles, because they don't deal with all the turning stress.
Just so, are retreaded tires safe?
Modern retread tires are safe, so safe that even school bus fleets use them. The reality is that retread tires are crafted and tested to perform like new tires. Tires that cause accidents are bald or under inflated, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
How much does it cost to get tires retreaded?
“For $50 or $75 more I can get them into a tire with a premium tread that can be retreaded again at least once. That alone will lower their tire cost per mile and deliver better value than the imported tire.” Retreads are a cost-effective alternative to the top-tier tires.
