Old tires never die, they are just being remolded!

How tires are brought back to life after their time passes!

Did you know that old tires never die? That they were just being remolded?! Well, I didn’t have a clue, until I saw this on Discovery! When tires and are no longer useful in their current form most people would thing that they are ready for the dump and there is nothing that can be done to make them useful again.

Nevertheless, something can be done. Tire makers can actually re-use some parts of the old rubber. So, instead of throwing away the whole tire, you can keep some parts to make something new.

That process is called “remolding”. In the video below you can see how old tires are stripped down to their cores so they can be brought to life again. In addition, these tires can cost 30-60 % less!
