Our retread process starts with a thorough initial inspection of casings for cuts, punctures, air pockets and other damage, and casings are repaired if necessary. Then casings are scanned for separations that might affect performance, and the tires are buffed to remove the old, worn tread design. Damaged materials are removed and final repairs are made. New tread rubber is bonded to the casing at low temperatures to avoid stress and distortion. Then a final inspection is performed to ensure the tire is in perfect operating condition.
Every tire retreaded and/or repaired by the Bandag process at a franchised Bandag dealer comes with a 4-year warranty for workmanship or materials failures, and a 2-year warranty for casing defects. If those types of failures should occur, a credit will be issued toward the price of a comparable Bandag retread.
