    Pay for new tires. Retreads are never a good idea on passenger vehicles.

    Honestly I wouldn't do it. How often are you buying tires?

    The people who have Treadwrights love them. I have one as a spare, but no other personal experience

    How is the weight of the retreads vs. other tires? Meaning are the retreads heavier? If they weigh 100lbs a piece or whatever, the money I save will get eat'n up by the mpg's I loose. If they weigh the same then it's not a bad deal.

    Thanks.

    Not sure but a few people have reported that they take less weights to balance and stay balanced better. Im considering some for my winter tires

    All kinds of tires blow out. My mechanic lost a new tire on his Suburban, which dented the quarter panel and the race trailer he was towing.
