Re: Regrooving tires

It's getting harder and harder to find places that can regroove tires, or cut an out of round tire. Check with a big truck tire place like GCR.

Re: Regrooving tires

I know my military truck tires I was having done for about $30 a piece now it's gone up to about $60 a piece, still much cheaper than a new tire.....although, I can often find 90% takeoffs mounted on the wheels for under $100.
Yeah the 19.5's ain't cheap!

Re: Regrooving tires

How often should they be balanced/rotated? I have not rotated/balanced them yet and I have put 25k miles on them. The total miles they have them is 85k.

thanks,
Andrew

Re: Regrooving tires

Andrew, You are going to have to get a phone book and get on the phone. Call big rig tire shops and ask.

We use to rotate and balance every 25K on our tow rigs.

Re: Regrooving tires

Re-grooving, not re-treading. 2 different things.
