New Goodyear Retreading Guarantee Helps to Save Money and the Environment

A new campaign from Goodyear makes retreading even more attractive for commercial vehicle operators. The new guarantee of 100% acceptance of casings, with no visual defects, within Goodyear’s Customer Own Casing (COC) scheme will help fleet operators to reduce their Total Cost of Ownership, while providing peace of mind.

Goodyear’s Multiple Life Concept, which combines both regrooving and retreading; reduces tyre costs by up to 10%, while it increases mileage by up to 25% compared to using two sets of new tyres.  Not only that but there are also significant environmental benefits through using fewer materials in the process, and reducing both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions thanks to the extended performance of the retreaded tyre. The benefit of using the COC scheme is that a vehicle operator mostly knows the full history of the tyres being retreaded.

“Accepting more casings from our customers for retreading means one less worry for the vehicle operator.  The Goodyear Multiple Life Concept maximizes tyre performance, lowers running costs and improves the CO2 footprint.  By incorporating both our Customer Own Casing scheme and eCasing retread management systems, customers can easily reap the many benefits retreading offers,” said Grégory Boucharlat, Director Retread Operations Europe, Middle East and Africa at Goodyear Dunlop.

Goodyear´s 100% COC acceptance guarantee is available now until further notice and applies to tyre sizes 295/60R22.5, 295/80R22.5, 315/60R22.5, 315/70R22.5, 315/80R22.5 385/55R22.5 385/65R22.5 and 435/50R19.5.
