As for retreads - they're heavier than normal tires, and they have issues with balancing - more often than not they have more rubber on one place than the other, and it throws the tire off balance, so you need to put more weights on the rim, and that looks bad plus it never quite balances out the way it should. At least that's my experience.

Nobody else has had these problems with retreads?

As for the durability, handling etc I can say only the best for them (have had a very rough pattern on Wrangler, and a 50-50 (so called macadam) pattern on the ZJ).
