Default Re: retreads?

We used to use retreads years ago for on and offroad . The biggest issue , which is mentioned here is that you run the risk of the tread seperating . Better methods since the 70's and 80's along with cheap prices make these attractive . I have wranglers on my truck now , stock tires , and I do a lot of highway . If I were doing some off road a lot , I would defintately look into something like that . But 99 % of my driving is highway . a lot of larger trucks swear by them as the cost of a new tire is double the cost of a retread . Buyers market .... whatever you feel comfortable in doing .

Just my opinion .....

The way I see it: lets say 1 tire brand new is $200, same tire retread is $100. If they both last the exact amount of mileage/time it is worth it. (to me) even if they last 3/4 the amount of new, you are still saving... BUT to each is on like said above!
