Pass along price hikes
If everybody passes on the tire manufacturers' price increases, profits will follow.
We pass each increase on to the consumer and profit margins have approached the 50-percent mark after labor and values.

Editor's Note: We contacted the American Retreaders Association, the National Tire Dealers & Retreaders Association and several retreaders in nearby states, but were unable to locate a passenger tire retreader that services Rhode Island.
We did find a light truck tire retreader in Pennsylvania whom we've put in touch with Mr. Paul.
If anyone else can be of assistance, please contact Mr. Paul: (401) 822-0014.
