Our core business is the manufacture, wholesale and retail of bead to bead remoulded tyres and normal top cap retreaded tyres.
To provide our customers with a quality product at a fair and reasonable price.

We also sell new tyres and are retailers of Dixon batteries.
We additionally provide an electronic wheel alignment service at our North End branch.
We utilise state of the art remoulding equipment that we have sourced from all over the world over the last 5 years.
The managers of the fitting shops Gardiol (North End) and Keith (Kempston Road) will make sure that you get fast efficient service and tyres at very good prices from the staff at both shops.

We have just installed a brand new 13 bar 50kw compressor to supply air to our moulds.
This new higher air pressure will give a better bond between the new rubber and existing casings making for a better export quality remoulded and retreaded tyre.
The design and manufacture of the Bulldog mould was done with the help of an Australian company, Elastech, and manufactured by a New Zealand company.
This tyre has proved very popular with hunters, farmers and 4/4 enthusiasts alike.
The wholesale side of our business is handled by Econotreads.
If you are a tyre dealer wanting to stock our tyres or a farmer wanting to try our tyres, we will either sell you the tyres and then ship via courier to you or put you onto our agents in Gauteng, Vastrap Bande. Please contact us and we will do our best to get you your tyres.
Our tyres are not manufactured to take the place of a new tyre, our tyres are an alternative to costly new tyres and as we all know, the majority of the population is currently feeling the pressure of financial constraints.
We are always open and honest with our customers and advise them not to fit remoulded tyres on their vehicles if they are doing continous high speed driving.
Our customers encompass a large section of the market whose cars are used to travel to work, or university, and back home. Our customers typically also drive off for the odd trip out of town, once or twice a year.
Commercially, companies with delivery cars and bakkies used around town fit our tyres. We also have a lot of customers that do regular long distance trips with our tyres, who experience no problems doing so.
Our tyres are very popular with hunters, farmers, game farm owners (see our Gallery section here) and 4/4 enthusiasts - all of whom generally make use of our tyres offroad and therefore want a tyre that can withstand punctures. Our Bulldog 4/4 tyre is especially popular in this sector.
If you are considering buying new tyres and are concerned about the price of the tyres, while you know that you drive your vehicle in a reasonable manner, then you should consider trying a set of remoulded tyres.
Then contact us! Please feel free to contact us about any questions you might have on any size tyres that you might be interested in.
All our tyres are sold with a full pro rata 6 month guarantee.
All remoulded and retreaded tyres are speed limited 120kmh.
All retreaded and remoulded tyres are NOT recomended for continuous high speed high way use.
The basic guarantee works like this, if you have a problem with one of our tyres we will after inspection, either replace the tyre at no charge or replace the tyre and charge you for the tread that you have used or replace the problem tyre with a tyre of similar tread.
Please note that slight sidewall cracks or blistering sometimes occur with a remoulded tyre. This is due to the flexing of the new sidewall rubber that we apply in our production process, this is normal wear and tear, and does not affect the safety of the tyre.
We believe that the speed limit on South African roads should be reduced from 120 km/h to 110 km/h, as it is in Australia. This would help to reduce the carnage which takes place on our roads every year, due to speeding, bad roads, unroadwothy vehicles and driver errors.
