Thanks a lot - I thought GDT was only an online copy of Termium, where I didn't find râpeuse. Shall look there before Proz'ing in the future.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  DPolice: Buffing. After inspection, tires have the old tread mechanically removed on high speed buffers. Today's buffers are extremely accurate and will remove the proper amount of old rubber while truing the tire to an exact specified diameter and radius.
