The need for regrooving
Today there is more of a need than ever for truck and fleet owners to keep operating costs as low as possible. Increasing tire mileage and decreasing fuel consumption is the most effective way to achieve this. Fuel and tires are a truckers two biggest expenses. Regrooving is the key to the most cost effective use of both. Truck tire regrooving has been shown to increase tire mileage by 30 % and at the same time dramatically decrease fuel consumption. Simply put, regrooving your truck tires, original rubber and/or retread rubber, will save you a lot of money.
What makes the tremendous benefits of regrooving possible?
Beneath the original tread pattern of a modern tire is the most effective, efficient, and environmentally friendly rubber. Here, tire mileage is at a maximum, while rolling resistance and fuel consumption is at a minimum. It is well known that tread rubber becomes progressively more durable as the tire surface continues to wear. It has been demonstrated that the rubber made useable by regrooving will get twice the miles per 1/32” compared to that of a newer tire. It has also been demonstrated that regrooved tires produce a 20% to 30% improvement in fuel efficiency compared to that of a newer tire. Regrooving enables the utilization of this most productive part of the tire. Calling it the “super rubber” would not be unreasonable.
Regrooving is a versatile process
Modern tires are designed to utilize all resources to optimize cost-effectiveness. Both virgin casings and retreaded tires can be regrooved and will provide thousands upon thousands of safe, fuel efficient miles. In fact, it has been shown that regrooving, then retreading, then regrooving again, may be the best way to maximize tire miles and fuel efficiency. Whatever your tire program happens to be, the introduction of regrooving can only save you money. If you are a truck tire dealer or a retreader, regrooving can be a valuable service for your customers and a source of great profit for you. Proper regrooving is the key to maximizing these tremendous benefits. Van Alstine Grooving Products are the key to proper regrooving.
