Tyre Tread Scam

This type of scam is typical of what people will do to sell part worn tyres.Hence, to the unsuspecting public?

I did a recent article about car tyre recutting about a year ago. Of course, it opened a few eyes. But  this newer video still shows that the illegal practice is going on.

I know all about recutting tyres. I used to do the job, but only on truck tyres. Because truck tyres have much more tread rubber than a car tyre. As expected, they can be recut. This simply means cutting a few more millimeters in the  tread pattern of the truck tyres.

On the other hand, car tyres do not carry a thick rubber layer inbetween the tread area and the carcass of the tyre. Therefore, recutting cannot take place legally.

However a skilled hand can still cut a few millimetres of rubber out of the existing tread pattern. Thus, of a car tyre. This is what is happening in this video. It makes my blood boil and is dangerous and illegal to do this.
