Retreaded tires and wholesaling: Is it a dying business?
from Modern Tire Dealer
From Feb. 19:
Retreaders in the United States stayed busy and were able to make more money in 2013. According to the 2014 Modern Tire Dealer Facts Issue, the average price of a retreaded truck tire was $250.04 in 2013, a pricing increase of 9.6 percent over 2012. In addition, 14.9 million truck tire retreads were produced, 100,000 units more than the previous year. That was enough work to keep the 680 retread shops busy every week. But not every retreader can keep a shop busy for 40 hours by replacing their customers’ truck tires. Some of them also rely on wholesaling.
