Proposed bill to give fleets tax credits for retreading

June 28, 2024
If passed, H.R. 8578 would provide tax credits to commercial trucking fleets that retread medium truck tires.
Advances in radio frequency identification (RFID) technology have the potential to transform truck tire management for both fleets and tire manufacturers. Placing RFID microchips in or on a tire can provide a treasure trove of intelligence that can be easily captured, including tire tracking, tire pressure, number of retreads and tread depth wear. Moreover, this data is electronically readable, which reduces the errors and workload in collecting it.
