Goodyear Precure Retreads
Precure retreads are available in a wide range of styles for enhanced performance in any application.
To create precure retreads, tread rubber is firmly bonded to the buffed tire casing with a layer of adhesive.
The two ends of the new tread segment are carefully fitted together. The tread and casing are then placed in a curing chamber, where the tread becomes securely adhered to the tire.
Goodyear Mold Cure Retreads
Mold cure retreads don't require adhesive, so they're lighter and more fuel-efficient. They also offer strength and toughness because the mold curing process produces a seamless construction.
To make mold cure retreads, the new tread is formed by applying raw rubber to the casing and heating it in a mold.
