Many of our used tires still have 85% or more of the tread remaining and are sold at a huge costs savings versus a new tire. Used tires, also known as “takeoff”, “change over” or “high tread” tires, are tires that have been mounted on a rim and for various reasons, have been “taken off” and discounted in price.
These tires are just as safe as a new tire, but cost much less then a new tire.
Smith Tire’s “Used Tire” to “Refurbished Tire” Process

Warranty on Used Tires?
We even guarantee our used tires from defects!
2) NDT II tire inspection machine – The NDT sends electric current through the tire stopping on any injury that might have been missed by the human eye. Depending on the severity of the injury, the tire is either patched or rejected. Patches are applied to the inside of the tread surface only
3) All tires are pressure tested to 110psi in a Mattuezzi Pressure Tester to verify no leaks
4) All tires receive a coat of commercial grade tire paint to ensure uniformity and “like new” condition
