basicly it's an old warn out tire that they put a new tread patch on i wouldn't recomend it if you race on a track that goes dry slick alot where they build alot of heat they will come apart

Local paved track required limited lates and streetstocks to run Towel City Retreads---they wore like iron and seldom had problems. When there was a problem, it usually occured right away and Towel City made good on it.
I've got a set of their tires (dirt) and could NOT be happier with them. They are the softest compound, on 8" casings (Hoosier),with the chain link tread pattern. They are AWESOME! Trouble is-they're too wide! Almost 9 1/4" tread!
