    I have been doing some research on these it seems like they have come along way. Most semis use retreads airlines use them, but not much for the car market. I under stand that a car tire is made less robust then a truck or airline tire but passenger retreads only get done once and they are approved by the DOT if they are legit.

    so I think I would run them with what I have seen. I think you would be at more chance to blow out a tire at 10psi on the highway then running a retread.

    So I wanted to see yall's opions about them would you run retreads or not and where you would.

    I figure that it would probably be OK for me to run them....but I would never do it. I'll spend a little more money and get brand new tires.
