The Greenest Tires Available
TreadWright tires are manufactured with 70% recycled content, including premium brand tire casings. Employing a proven European manufacturing process called remolding, TreadWright uses the same mold cure process as traditional manufacturers of OEM tires. With the same quality, durability, and better mileage than similar tires in its class, TreadWright tires are better for your car and better for the environment. Each TreadWright tire uses approximately 6 gallons of oil compared to 18 gallons for a new tire – 65% less oil than standard tires as well as less energy used in the overall manufacturing process. In addition to 12 gallon savings per tire produced, using recycled tire content also helps to ensure that old tires are not taking up space in landfills or polluting the nation's lakes and rivers.
Not only do TreadWright's remanufactured tires benefit the environment, they benefit consumers as well. Using recycled materials allows TreadWright to invest more in its rubber compounds and engineering process to create improved wear characteristics in its tires without sacrificing value. In fact, TreadWright tires perform better than similarly priced imports tires, and offer the same mileage as new tires in its class.
