It is probably not the first time you hear of retread tyres. They have been around for man years as an alternative to new vehicle tyres.
However, due to their safety, they slowly fell off the radar yet people still purchase them even today.
Retreading involves the replacement of treads on worn tyres but is it safe?
According to sources, retreads are normally not recommended due to the unknown nature of their history, overall structural strength, stability at high speeds, inferior wet grip, durability and braking performance.
So, the bottom line is, retreads are not new tyres and, like anything used, they have a greater potential to fail.
