:twothumb:I drive a tour bus with retreads on the rear and from my personal experience they would be the last thing I would put on my personal vehicle. Any and all tire failures I have had in my 35 plus years of driving commercial vehicles have been with retreads. In my opinion they are crap!! When those treads let go at highway speed they do more damage to your truck that the money you save.
If the guy that is inspecting the casings before capping had a bad night and misses a flaw the cap won't hold.
Fleets use them for cost savings because of the volume of tires they go through.
Ask yourself do you want to scrimp on all that is between you and the road? Buy a little less bling and spend it on decent rubber.
As was said earlier where do you think all that rubber lining the highways comes from?
Yea when I first opened this and saw him saying that I was all for a $100 set of tires haha. These wouldn't be bad for a backup set of mud/offroad only tires I guess, but not something I would want on the highway.That's per tire. Not a set.
You can get real tires for reasonable prices too...just not the overpriced Goodyear junk.
Hence all the tire treads littering the Interstates...
Yep and most of those tires that blow out on them are retreads...
