Vipal Rubber's QGR Guarantee Reaches 6 Million Retreaded Tyres


One of the key benefits offered to hauliers by Vipal Rubber is their QGR guarantee (Qualified and Guaranteed Retread), which has now hit a significant milestone of 6 million retreaded tyres.

Key Milestone for Vipal's QGR Guarantee

First recognised 24 years ago, the QGR programme guarantees the first retreading of truck and bus tyres of the most popular tyre brands sold in the market, including the casing.

The 16 tyre brands approved by Vipal Rubber for the QGR programme are: Fate, Firestone, Goodyear, Michelin, Bridgestone, Pirelli, Toyo, Continental, Dunlop, Sumitomo, Yokohama, Hankook, Double Coin, Marshal, General and BF Goodrich. "All retreaded tyres go through certified processes according to the regulatory bodies of each location where they are manufactured, which aims to ensure the quality of the service. 

Vipal's biggest competitive advantage is that the QGR guarantee extends this benefit, also guaranteeing the tyre´s casing in the first retreading," explained Leandro Paim, Vipal's Technical Assistance Manager. The QGR can easily be obtained by the haulier, who can request the service from retreaders who offer this benefit from Vipal.
