I used to run retreads all of the time in high school. Each set lasted me about a year. That was on a variety of vehicle and always about the same longevity.

About how many miles did you get out of them?

Did they blow out or just wear out?

Between 8 and 12K. Most of them just wore out but I did have a couple blow on me. Not something I would wish to repeat with my trailer behind the fat girl for sure.

Yeah I have a 2 hour drive back and fourth to school quite often on a long dark highway and I dont want to be stranded because of a blowout. I know my tires now can blow out just dont want to increase the risk

i just came back from the shop with 4 new BFG's so i will not be testing the re-threads. i do wish to for the price. they quoted me shipping on the 4 to san deigo @ $132.00.

i am thinking the re-threading technology got better. i have heard bad things from the old stories,but no newer user stories.
