Mold Cure Process
The application of tread in a mold cure retreading process is very similar to that in the new tire manufacturing process. Uncured tread rubber is applied to a buffed casing. The prepared casing, built to the correct diameter with uncured rubber, is now ready to be place in the mold for curing. Custom-Mold is not available at all MRT locations. Only available in select geographic areas.
* Based on industry standard rolling resistance testing of comparable drive tires and retreads. Actual results may vary, and may be impacted by many factors, to include road conditions, weather and environment, driver performance, etc.
