Goodyear Dunlop Retreading Solutions

Goodyear Dunlop Retreading Solutions help fleets to maximise the lifetime potential of their tyres. We offer a wide range of retreading packages under our Multiple Life concept.

Why Goodyear/Dunlop retreading?

  • Reduce your fleet’s cost/km
  • Part of a complete service offering
  • Similar performance levels to new tyres in terms of mileage, fuel consumption, wet grip and noise
  • Kinder to the environment

Retread tyres and tread bands are developed in parallel with our new tyres, so you can be confident of the same high standards of design, construction and quality control.

Multiple Life concept

Get greater value from your fleet tyre investments through our Multiple Life concept. Premium retread tyres can deliver performance levels comparable to new tyres, at a lower cost.

The Multiple Life concept

  • Initial investment in new Goodyear Dunlop truck or bus tyres
  • Regrooving of worn tyres for extended mileage
  • Retreading of tyres for second life usage
  • Regrooving of retreaded tyres for further mileage and tyre life

Depending on application type, tyre usage and casing quality, Goodyear Dunlop tires may be suitable for more than one retread.

Retreading processes

Mold cure retreading

Mold cure retreading uses heated tyre molds.

  • The tyre casing is buffed
  • A layer of uncured rubber is applied to the casing
  • The tyre is cured or vulcanized in a heated tyre mold at a temperature of around 150°C
  • The mold contains matrices that stamp the new tread pattern and sidewall on the tyre, giving the finished product the appearance of a new tyre.

All Goodyear Dunlop Retreading mold cure products are produced in-house and developed by the same engineering teams as our new tyres. This means that the same stringent quality requirements apply to retreaded tyres as to new tyres.

Environmental benefits

Goodyear Dunlop Retreading reduces your fleet’s ecological footprint and promotes long-term sustainability.

Fewer raw materials

Maximising the life of the tire casing means fewer natural resources are used by your fleet.

Lower energy consumption

The production of a moldcure retread tyre results in one third less green house gases and two-thirds less oil used compared to the production of a new truck tyre.

Reduced environmental impact

Using retread tyres results in fewer chemicals being employed and fewer tire casings to be disposed of.
