Here's how the points are calculated: Each April, Modern Tire Dealer ranks the"Top 100 Retreaders in the U.S." based on the average amount of tread rubber used to retread different types of tires. Twelve pounds of rubber, on average, are used to produce one light truck tire retread, while 24 pounds are used to produce one medium/heavy truck tire retread. An average of 324 pounds are used to build one OTR tire retread. MTD awards one point for every seven pounds of rubber used per retread. Each light truck tire retread equals 1.7 points, each truck tire retread equals 3.5 points, and each OTR retread equals 46 points. The point total does not include industrial tires. Numbers are rounded to the nearest point. See all Top 100 Retreaders at Quik-Link: 800-687-1557 ext. 14124 46
