i guess it depends on where your getting them from but ive heard good stuff about treadwright, its of course not gonna be as good as regular tires and there is a risk of course but its rare to have problems from them and there usually fine from what ive heard...

They make a 33" tire for a 16" rim, but they've discontinued the ones for 15" rims. Otherwise I'd highly recommend Treadwright.

Ive heard horror storys from a friends dad.

My friends dads company used to use retreads on their trucks and he said every once and a while the rubber would shoot off of the tire..

IMO theyll never even be close to being as good as real tires.

I wouldnt buy them, waste of money.

Do you have fist hand experience? I have personally gone through 2 sets and my brother and uncle another 2. There are a million threads on here about retreads for passenger vehicles. You should look them up. Retreads have MANY standards they have to comply with to become road worthy. They are 100% just as safe as any tire that you go buy. We are talking about a 1-2 ton jeep vs. 25 ton truck. They are constantly driving at highway speeds also. Please know what you are talking about before you lead people away from a perfectly good tire.

Retreaded passenger car tires and retreaded truck tires are completely different, when you drive down the interstate do you see those tire parts all over that's because the tread separated. It's fairly common on big rigs because the tires they put on the trailers are retreaded because trailer owners are cheap and don't put new tires on because they are expensive so they find the cheapest retread they can put on and use it. As far as passenger tires go I have never heard of one separating, the only downside to retreaded tires is they don't recommend airing them down off road because it puts extra pressure on the bond that holds the tread to the body. If you don't air down off road they are just fine for your use.

If I had to choose between a new tire and a retread, of course I will choose the new tire. All I'm saying is everyone gives retreads a bad wrap when they are JUST as safe as a new tire. And for $80 a tire I really don't think you can go wrong. I have aired down on my tires multiple times with no ill effects.
