retread tires

Has anyone ever had their tires retreaded ? was curious how it turned out ? It's a lot cheaper than buying a whole new set, plus they say it's like brand new.

for me, I wouldn't trust a "they say" type of comment. For a performance car with a lot of HP, not sure a retread would be the safest way to go.

OH No, no, no, no, NO! I didn't think you could ever get retreads for cars anymore...you shouldn't be able to. They are very dangerous for high-speed use or for hard cornering. Please... don't do it.

Tires have to be labeled as OK to retread. If it's not labeled okay, DON'T DO IT.

Large truck tires are about the only thing that can be retreaded anymore.

It’s “puff, puff, give” dude. You must have kept puffing.
