I don't see any companies that use retreads anymore. Sometime truck tires just blow out. Maybe you if you were traveling at the speed limit you could have avoided it. Don't feel sorry for you at all.

The retread popped off the 18 wheeler that is stopped in the video, most likly. You guys should have pulled over and inspected his 18 tires for missing tread. He has insurance. and the first car is an idiot for not avoiding the tread.

They call them alligator tails. A lot of them are just failed tires, not just retreads. There are lot fewer retreads on the road. You see a lot of them on Mexican vans in the desert, but you really wont see many flatbeds with re-treads. They just dont do it.

It's not necessarily a retread. Underinflated/dry-rotted/poor-quality tires in general tend to flex too much (sometimes grind against the tire next to them if it's a dual-wheel configuration) and then fail catastrophically. A properly-maintained retread won't disintegrate like this any sooner than a virgin tire, they're just strips of rubber tread applied over a good carcass of a quality tire with worn tread. A typical disintegrated tire carcass in the road is complete with belts, indicating that the strongest part of the tire has failed, not just the strip of tread. I'll take a good retread on a sound Michelin or Goodyear carcass over a virgin Double Coin (cheap Chinese truck tire) all day. The Stop Sticks police use on fleeing cars operate on the same principle: underinflated tires are prone to failing catastrophically because the sidewalls can't handle the additional stress, and Stop Sticks don't shred tires, they have hollow spikes that let the air out. A driver won't lose control immediately, they have a few hundred feet to come to a safe stop, and if they continue to flee, the tires will fail catastrophically, not because they're retreads, but because they were underinflated.

Typically theres nothing wrong with bias ply tires. The issue comes when the companies won't replace the tires until basically they blow out.

Retreads have a proven carcass, and adding tread makes sense and is cheaper. Retreads fail due to overheating,caused by under inflation. Most truckers are just pulling any trailer, and don't check the tires. A driver using his own trailer pays more attention to tire pressure, to avoid the issues with under inflation. Cheaper to keep the tires serviced, than replacing them.

For the info it is now not be cause of the retread process. It is they retread bad casings and that is why they blow. But i see this all the time while driving. Sorry it damaged all the cars but like others have said, how did the first one not see the cap in the road without hitting it? The yellow one had no one in front and he still hit it. You even had time to avoid but you hit it too.

Sucks to hit a retread, guess what. that's why I pay enough attention it doesn't happen. I've NEVER hit a retread. even when i was driving a semi where maneuverability is limited. we call em gators btw. because they will jump up and bite you if you get to close. and they kinda look like little alligators laying by the road if you have ever been to flordia you will know what I mean.

You ate that tire because you were following too close to the car in front of you. So when the Porsche ran over it and it came flying out, you did not have time to avoid hitting it. The Porsche driver was also following the car in front of him too closely which is why he could not avoid hitting the tire. So did the car's behind you. Rule of thumb, you need about a 2-3 second separation between cars if you want to avoid hitting shit. Second, that's a TWO lane road, not three. Third - Retreaded Truck tires are legal in almost every country, not just the USA. In Europe, used tires are banned from all landfills and almost 1/2 of all tires sold, about 7-8 million retreaded tires are sold every year.

Banning retreads would put many independent trucks OUT OF BUSINESS. They do cost haft the price of new.... Multiply x 16 is an ton of money (steer tires must be new) A big problem is driving too fast and overheating them. Many truck tires -- even new ones -- have a max speed of 75mph. Retreads should be lower. There is too much time pressure on truckers. Also... a very diligent daily driver inspection should be able to spot delaminated tread, but again... there is no time to inspect let alone replace.... Just let it peel off and get to the unload.

HMMM, running 90 miles an hour, that they will admit to, saw a vehicle on the side with 4 ways on. no attempt to slow. You were driving to fast to begin with, now it is someone else's fault that you were not obeying the law and not looking where your car was going. You damaged your car by your own negligence. When a tire blows, even on a car, you may not be able to stop because of having to get to a safe place to pull over. Just curious, would you rather run into the rear end of the truck at 90MPH, because the driver had to walk 250 feet back to gather up the tread.

If the tread in the picture behind you is the tread that you guys hit that's not a retread or a recap I can tell buy the inside and buy the trade itself that that was a ordinary truck tire that was not a recap the problems with those are not necessarily when they're made it's the cheap asses that use them don't use them properly they overload their trailers which causes the truck tires to bulge they don't maintain proper air pressure the tires will heat up and when they heat up to a temperature where they wouldn't be heating up if it wasn't overloaded or if the PSI is properly maintained usually between 95 and 100 PSI depending on the load range of the tire these things wouldn't happen most Recaps usually let go when the tread is nearly worn down past is wear bars where the tires shouldn't be on the road anymore that's usually when a recap let's go and I would solely place the blame on the truck driver when I used to show up because I was a tire technician for big rigs I always picked up any road debris that I saw before I even get to the truck part of the safety training to keep people like me safe well I'm working on the truck so someone doesn't swerve to miss that piece of rubber and plow into me

Lol most retreads live a long life without blowing apart, I have went through dozens and dozens over the years and literally never had one gator on me. Pay attention and follow at a proper distance, and that will save most the headaches. Of course there are cases where the tires are just trash but they can be just as strong or stronger than a new tire. Also, retreads are allowed in North America, anywhere from Mexico to Canada and you Meatheads all should have moved over a lane as soon as you seen the truck on the side of the road with it's flashers on. It sucks that you all hit it but between all of you most of you hit it and none of you with your radios told each other to be careful for the tire on the road. Your first clue should have been for all of you to slow down and move over when you seen the truck like the law states and none of this would have happened, and of course it happened quick when you are doing 90mph towards a downed truck lol

Irony is a guy who admittedly speeds on the highway yet contends that there ought to be additional laws to protect his interests while he is speeding. If you could trace the retread back to an owner, you might have a case for arbitration. The promotion of law to "monitor" or mitigate the incidence of road debris, on the other hand, amounts to only further profligacy and overreach of government, where it has demonstrated a failed record time and again. A more reliable resolution to this problem would take the form of privatization, whereby road operators would inherently operate in their self-interest to maintain clean environments and safe driving conditions. Moreover, safe driving distances typically afford ample reaction time to avoid these events, and the type of "monitoring" that would be required by the law would necessitate measures, costs and infringements that most people would strongly denounce: checkpoints, "random" pull-overs and the like. The world is a wildly imperfect place, and the initiatives which often purport to perfect it frequently operate under the guise of something friendlier than control, and they tend to obfuscate the inherent risks of life on earth. While we would surely be remiss to blatantly ignore their causes, as they are often relatable, we would be negligent to ignore the total costs of their so-called remedies. As it turns out, the road to serfdom is paved by the warm intentions of do-gooders who fail to acknowledge the limits of their imaginations, whose fanciful notions of utopia distract them from the perils of coercion. While it's downright infuriating to incur damage to our vehicles while driving across highways and interstates, we must appreciate the inherent risks of these actions. The costs of driving are not limited to the costs of purchase, fuel, insurance, registration, maintenance, repairs and related taxes; they include the risks of driving across roads with fellow drivers under always-unique conditions with the full accompaniment of unforeseeable events and debris, and some of these risks serve to drive up those aforementioned costs. We must consider these real possibilities while driving, lest we risk elevated risk exposure for our high-priced sports and luxury vehicles whose bumpers and trim pieces are priced not according to intrinsic (or utility) value, but rather according to cosmetic or collectible value. In the philosophical sense, then, the basic violation climbs from a $100 valuation (for the Honda Civic driver) to $3,000 (for the Ferrari owner) for a cosmetic loss that cannot be reliably priced for objective purposes. Most of the complaints about retreads are honest and sincere at their origins, but they commonly come from people who don't operate heavy vehicles or the companies that use them. These kinds of cost-savings measures combine with others to enable increasingly lower prices for the end consumer, or to increase savings for further ventures, and they limit the exhaustive labor required through the marketplace to sustain fleets and to operate the distribution and supply chain. However, the average person operates for most of his or her life from the perspective of an employee and a consumer, failing to ever appreciate the sides of the producer and the employer. It is for this very reason that it is so easy to pass measures targeting these groups to effectively transfer culpability to producers and employers whom the layman envies due to reasons imagined yet never tested.

You need awareness, good reflexes, and good insurance. I've run over pieces of caps, 2x4s, rocks, holes,and other stuff.

It's hard to sue unless you can prove negligence was involved.

It is so funny people making the remarks of these guys were "following too close", "speeding" , "you should have been paying attention" and the best one " you should have noticed the truck that was pulled over". Guess what, trucks pull off for many reasons and people that were in front of the car pack might not have seen it till they were on top of it ( because it is a black colored piece of rubber on a black background of a road on a rise and the day was overcast) and this causes a domino effect for all the cars behind it. The following too close statement is not even a factor as the cars were not that close to each other and the truck on the side of the road was not readily apparent prior to the retread laying in the road. You people need to look at the video a little more carefully before making comments. Most people who encounter road debris do not see it till the last few seconds and have to react in respect to the speed of their vehicle plus the debris being mobile or stationary at the time they initially encountered it.
