Tread depth different is exiting Manufacture recommend 2/32
Looking for place in who still shaving tire

Did Internet searched, came up the name Circuit Tire
called Circuit Tire in Maple Ridge already and they said they don't do it anymore.

Thanks in advance

Last time I checked, no one in the lower mainland does tire shaving anymore.
Plus, if the one tire is not brand new, the tire shop may not shave even if they do do that work.

One wheel tire fire!

Job Done

For future reference: Oct 2012

Kal Tire Retread Plant in Chilliwack can shave tire
can drop off tire at any Kal Tire location.
They have trunk going there daily.
cost me $20 + tax shaving 1 tire.

Regular Kal Tire retail store will not know this special service
must contact Kal Tire Retread Plant in Chilliwack to confirm.
Kent is the person I contact in Retread Plant.

Good Day, Revscene

P.S. special thanks to Curtis from Speed Syndicate for point me into there.

Bumping a super old post.

Does anyone have recommendations for tire shaving besides Kal Tire?

Anything in the lower mainland?
