OTR Retreading

Our reconditioned tires are acquired throughout the world and we are in constant search for quality casings as well as tires suitable for reconditioning. Used tires often offer a very cost effective solution to tire needs for mining operations, construction and equipment sales.

H&H Industries has developed and vigorously tested technologies, techniques and materials that remain unique to our process only. Our research and development staff are continually field testing and evaluating new tread designs, rubber compounds and manufacturing processes to ensure that our customers receive only the highest quality remanufactured otr tire available on the market today.

Retreading Best Practices

H&H offers many sizes and tread designs available in mold, cuttread and precure caps as well as used tires from the smallest industrial tire to the largest being ran today, the 63 inch tire and remains one of the few to remanufacture the 63 inch tire.

SUGGESTED GUIDELINES FOR RETREADS ON LOADER TIRES:
  1. Retreaded tires with section repairs, rear use only.
  2. Air pressure on retreaded loader tires should be the same as the new tire recommendations for that brand of casing. The recommendations for the use of a tire, on site or on a job, depends on the working conditions and use, and can be determined on site by a representative of H&H Industries.
SUGGESTED GUIDELINES FOR RETREADS ON GRADER TIRES:
  1. Retreaded tires can be used in all positions on a grader.
  2. Air pressure on retreaded grader tires should be the same as the new tire recommendations for that brand of casing taken from their engineering data book, which can be furnished by H&H Industries upon request.
SUGGESTED GUIDELINES FOR RETREAD RADIAL TRANSPORT TIRES ON ARTICULATED, RIGID AND BOTTOM DUMP TRUCKS:
  1. Rear use only on rigid and bottom dump trucks.
  2. Articulated truck retreads should be used on their rear axles only. For example: axles 2 and/or 3.
  3. Air pressure on retreaded articulated and haulage tires should be the same as the new tire recommendations for that brand casing taken from their engineering data book and using ton-mile-per-hour (tmph) formula to calculate the proper air pressure.
  4. The average load per retreaded tire is the same as the new tire specifications for that brand casing.
  5. The recommended maximum haulage distance for a radial retread on an articulated, rigid and bottom dump truck is approximately 5 miles round trip. Anyone with a round trip of 5 miles or more should contact H&H Industries at (740) 682-7721 and speak to a sales representative.

  4. The recommended maximum haulage distance for a retread on a scraper is approximately 2 miles round trip. Anyone with a round trip of 2 miles or more or has an ambient temperature of 95 degrees Fahrenheit at this job site should contact a representative of H&H Industries at (740) 682-7721. Remember the recommendations for the use of a tire on site or on a job depends on the working conditions and use, and can be determined on site by a representative of H&H Industries.
