I had a buddy at work put retreads on his truck one time. He ditched them. I have never heard anything good about retreads. Just my opinion though.

Ditto, when they fail, they fail catastrophically and will tear a fender off if it's in the way.

My aunt commutes to work, (80 plus miles per day) on the interstate and has seen a couple retreads come off. One went thru the winshield on her pontiac.

My brother runs retreads on his truck and has had no problems. He bought them from High-Tec Retreading.

Never scrimp on tires. Retreads bring new meaning to the phrase "Lay the rubber to the road".
