Sorry no pics, they were all Bandag retreaded light truck casings but had a fairly mild tread pattern. Never had any tire separation or balancing problems.
Forget the retreaders name but they sell several different tread patterns, even some with a green diamond compound for winter traction in the tread, if I could get a set without paying through the nose for shipping/duty I would give them a try. Have read nothing but good reviews by people that run them.

I just get peeved by people that say they are dangerous with nothing to back up their statements.

we might be thinking different things, but as retreads that i know, they cut new treads into the already bald tire getting very close to the belting and reinforcement

And I'm pretty sure that there's no re-treads as he described. Pretty sure that would be illegal most places.

I'm personally not a fan, and I don't think they're AS safe. I've ran them in the past on cars when I was a poor student, and I never had a problem with them, except them not lasting really long.
All in all though, if you're 'green' at heart, they're not a bad thing.

Retread is when you take a bald tire and basically put tread back on them. Not sure how it works exactly, sort of like putting a new layer of ruber on that has a tread on it.

I personally wouldn't run them. Ever.

We've run them on our F350 flatbed because they were on it when we bought it, and we had one of the rears blow the tread on the highway.

It's sort of like, you get what you pay for. You go cheap, you get shoddy performance with shoddy craftsmanship. It's not as dependable as a brand new tire is.

Please don't let this thread turn into an opinion thread. I've read way too many threads about what people think and don't so i really don't need to read anymore right now
