My name is Shane Kennedy, my business is Shane Kennedy Tyres based in Ardcroney, Nenagh, co. Tipperary, offering retread truck tyres and serving a geographical area encompassing North Tipperary and South Offaly and also the adjoining areas of Co.’s Clare, Galway, and Limerick. 

I offer the following services:

Tyre Retreading

Most of the manufacturing cost of a new tyre is in the production of the tyre body, or casing. Truck tyres are now designed to be capable of more than one tread life. The long life policy will give the purchaser the best value for money return.

Tyre Life Extending (farmers and small operators)

I use a new product called Air Seal which can be used to extend the life of a tyre. This is very useful for customers who are not ready to replace all their tyres and wish to squeeze a few more weeks or months from their existing stock.

Information from Kraiburg

Retreading is a safe, economical and environmentally-friendly way to give bald tyres a new lease of life: the worn tread surface is replaced by a new one.

The end result is a tyre which can be reused!

Not every tyre is suitable for retreading.

- it is only possible in the following cases:

  • The tyre has been looked after properly, handled with care, and driven with the correct air pressure in its "first life".
  • The casing is in good condition and has not sustained any serious damage.
  • The question as to whether a casing can be reused also depends on the type of tyre.

Retreads and their place on the market

The proportion of retreads on the replacement car and truck tyre market in Europe still varies widely.

For car tyres, retreads make up only 1-2% of the market in Switzerland and the Netherlands, but this figure rises to over 20% in Scandinavia. In Germany, retreads account for around 10% of car tyres, a proportion which rises to 20% for winter tyres.

For truck tyres, the proportion of retreads is much higher, ranging from around 40% in Spain to over 70% in Finland. In Germany and France, retreads make up around half of the replacement tyre market for trucks. Over 15 million truck and bus tyres are used every year across the EU. Of these, around 8 million are new tyres, and over 6 million are retreads.

Retreading plays a particularly important role in aircraft tyres, which are subjected to extreme stresses. Aircraft tyres have to withstand huge strain at speeds of over 250 km/h, and undergo retreading after around 150 take-off and landing manoeuvres. Retreading can take place up to twelve times. The testing procedures are naturally very stringent here, and safety takes top priority.

I can use the product to effectively rescue a machine that has tyre problems and not only get you back to base but in fact keep you on the road for weeks or months.

This can be a real time saver and can reduce replacement costs significantly.
