Retreading

Shrader Tire & Oil began retreading tires in 1993 at our Blissfield, MI location. Since then, we've upgraded, expanded, and relocated the plant to Melvindale, MI. With our 20 years of experience, Michelin's new tire technology and rigorous quality control, no other retreads compare. We follow a consistent, highly audited nine-step manufacturing process to deliver uniform results. We also examine 100% of the casings before retreading and support our retreads with a retread warranty. Our Pre-Mold™ process is designed for one purpose; to help your fleet maximize its tire assets.

 

Michelin Retread Advantages:

  • CAM Specs: Customer Asset Management Specs allow you to control and establish perimeters (Age, number of times retreaded, repair limits, etc.)
  • Buffing: Our fully computer-controlled buffer consistently creates proper under tread depth to specific manufacture specifications.  The specific under tread thickness allows for cooler running and reduced casing fatigue on your casings.  “Crepe-like” surface after buffing with our side-to-side radial buffer is highly receptive to the adhesion of the tread. 
  • Repairs: *Therma Cure* cushion gum is used in place of standard chemical adhesive patches.  This process is 3x stronger maximizing your casing life with a fully bonded permanent repair. Also reduces emergency road service.
  • Double-Enveloping: Along with an outer envelope, an inner envelope is added in the Michelin Retread Technology.  The inner envelope enhances repair by applying pressure to both sides of the repair.  Making stronger repairs which increases tire life and reduces downtime.
  • Curing: Steam heat source ensures consistent temperature for the entire chamber while in the curing cycle.  Even heating reduces exposure to degrading heat.  Maximum casing/tread life due to reduced heat exposure and even curing.
  • Warranty: Assets that come through the Michelin Retread Plant leave with a warranty on the casing and the tread.  Even if the casing is not from Shrader Tire and Oil. We only put the highest quality out, and we stand behind that!

GO GREEN!

Batteries contain lead that is 97% recyclable, but each year, millions of batteries will simply not be recycled. Some are illegally disposed of in dumpsters while others sit in garages, shipping yards, junk piles or storage sheds. Leaking acid from these old batteries creates health and safety hazards to the environment. Because recycled lead costs less than freshly mined lead, recycling old batteries helps sustain lower costs for new batteries.

 

Since batteries contain harmful chemicals, be sure to always take the precautions when handling them, like:
• Wear gloves and safety glasses
• Place batteries on a sturdy surface to transport them (If the battery case is cracked or leaking make sure to place it in a plastic bag or leak proof container)
• Keep batteries upright and tightly secure before transporting
• Do not smoke near or expose batteries to an open flame

Recycling and Retreading Tires

[scrap tires] Tires, like batteries, also have a knack for finding their ways to waste piles, the side of the road, and behind sheds in scrap piles. Tire waste is a growing problem around the world and many municipalities are now holding tire "amnesty" days where residents can bring in scrap tires without charge for proper disposal. Shrader offers the Cash-4-Casings program where we buy your used tire casings for retreading purposes.

 

Retreads are significantly cheaper than new tires. As a result, this is a cost-effective way to keep commercial trucking fleets on the road. They are also the most environmentally friendly way of recycling used tires. In some off-road applications, a tire can be retreaded up to 10 times.

To learn more about Recycling & Retreading tires with Shrader, click here.

Recycling Oil

[wasteoil] Many of us have old milk jugs filled with waste oil in our garages, collecting dust and awaiting a purpose. But did you know that used oil can still have a life after it leaves your engine?

Used oil can be re-refined into base stock for lubricating oil andformulated to meet API specifications. If you recycle just two gallons of used oil it can generate enough electricity to run the average household for almost 24 hours. With waste oil furnaces, you can also use it as fuel to heat your garage.

 

So what can you do? If you change your own oil, be certain that you take it to a collection center for recycling. Some collection companies will even come out to your facility, collect the used oil, and then pay you! If you take your car or truck to a service station, you can be certain that they will recycle the oil that they change.

Tire Maintenance

With the government coming down on fleets through CSA, you cannot afford to be penalized for a poor tire maintenance program. Since tires are the second highest category for vehicle citations following brakes, it is imperative that fleets maintain their tires in a more efficient manner. With our certified professional technicians, what better way than to allow Shrader Tire & Oil help manage and maintain your fleet's tires.

 
Yard Checks

 

Scheduled yard checks are one of the service offerings we provide at Shrader Tire & Oil. A Shrader certified tire technician will come inspect the vehicles listed in your program. We can then set parameters and achievement goals for the tires by position or application. Tires that meet those goals can then be either retreaded or swapped for new tires. Tires that wear or fail prematurely are analyzed to determine the root cause of the problem so it may be corrected, allowing you to run more efficiently.  

 
Proper Tires For Your Application

 

Determining the proper tires to run for your specific application is paramount to keeping your fleet rolling. There are around 14 million miles of roads worldwide and we’ve got the right tires for every one of them. But no two roads are the same and no two manufacturers are the same; this is why Shrader carries many of the top commercial truck and RV tires, including Michelin and Continental. From Long Haul Steers to Michelin X-One Retreads, we have the inventory and the expert knowledge to identify the correct tires by axle for your fleet. We realize that tires are a sizeable investment for your company so Shrader offers programs to help you achieve the lowest cost-per-mile. Ultimately, cost effectiveness is what matters. For those traveling out west, we also have SmartWay verified tires.

 
Pre-trip Inspections

 

It is important for drivers to make pre-trip inspections before leaving for their routes. Drivers should look for nail holes, gouging, coupling, excessive wear, and sidewall damage on the vehicle’s tires. By making these preventative steps, you are greatly reducing the chance of premature tire failure. Regular inspections can help avoid unexpected blow-outs and eliminate the cost of road service or having to call a wrecker. It can also lessen the impact on the environment by not having to replace and scrap tires as often.

 
Alignments

 

Having proper vehicle alignment ensures you’re getting the most of your tire investment. Alignment affects handling, steering, stability, tire performance, and driver comfort. Have alignment checks periodically as specified by the vehicle owner’s manual or whenever you or your driver indicate the truck is pulling or tracking. Learn more about Beeline Alignments.

 
Mounting & Balancing

 

Keep an eye on the condition of your tire mounting hardware. Be sure that lug nuts are not rusted or rounded over, and tire valves are not cracked and are free from debris. Balancing is important for making sure the weight is evenly distributed around the axle. Unbalanced tires can put uneven pressure or heat on the treads causing uneven wear. Unbalanced tires can also strain the wheel bearings and suspension components through tire wobble.

 
Inflation

 

Both over and under-inflated tires can lead to premature failure. Always refer to tire or vehicle manufacturer specs on proper inflation pressure. Over inflated tires are more susceptible to road hazard damage and lead to vehicle handling issues. Under inflated tires create excessive heat and stress which breaks down the tire faster and can lead to failure.

 
Scrap Tire Analysis

 

Most fleets store their scrap tires somewhere behind the maintenance shop until the pile begins to take over the yard. A good scrap tire analysis program can eliminate that pile from taking over and help you avoid past mistakes which can result in reducing future tire costs. Consider what these scrap tires may tell you with their tread depth, number of retreads, irregular tread wear, brake skids and sidewall curb damage. Also consider the tire brand and tread designs that work for your applications. Determining what the stories are behind these issues can be a challenge for even the most seasoned tire professionals. Allow Shrader to inspect your fleet’s tires to determine critical issues in your fleet’s maintenance.

 
Retreading

 

Retreading tires is a great way to stretch maintenance dollars as new tires can be very costly. Retreading tires is also a good way to be environmentally conscious because, in some cases, retreading can be done several times to a single tire. Shrader Tire & Oil is a certified Michelin “MRT” Retreader operating a state-of-the-art Michelin Retread plant in Melvindale, Michigan. Learn more about recapping tires with Shrader.

Rim Reconditioning

With CSA coming down on fleets for poor vehicle maintenance, it's important that your truck's wheels are in a well maintained condition. That's why Shrader developed the Thermobrite-3 Rim-Restoration process. Our six step, fast turn around process returns rims back to their original luster. The average life on the Thermorbrite-3 process is 24-months. To achieve this we make your wheels look newer, longer by:

  • Baking off the old paint: Rims are placed into the Thermal Burn-Off Oven for removal of all organic materials.
  • Shot blasting to remove all rust: Rims are put through the brief shot blaster for a final touch up and removal of stubborn rust.
  • Inspect for cracks and worn out bolt holes: The rims are inspected insuring only safe rims are returned to service.
  • Apply a heavy primer coat: A powder-rust preventative primer is applied and cured, followed by a final powder coat.
  • Apply the powder coat in the color of your choice (multiple colors available): Coated rims are then sent through the curing oven a second time by a powered monorail.
  • Final inspection for quality: Finished Thermobrite Rims are inspected and safetly wrapped to ensure your satisfaction.

New Thermobrite-3 wheels are available for purchase or we can restore your current wheels. Need more info or want to order? Contact a sales representative or call 800-589-6589 to speak with our rim reconditioning experts!
