When it comes to tyres, one of the most effective ways operators can lessen environmental impact is by choosing retreads for their fleets. Tyre retreading extends the useful lifetime of a tyre and is a more economical alternative to buying completely new tyres. By reusing the casing, energy and raw materials are saved, and the number of old tyres in circulation is reduced. As one of the world’s leading tyre manufacturers, Continental has a wealth of experience in retreading and casing management. As part of its ContiLifeCycle programme, it offers high-quality retreads under the ContiRe name.
