We must pay close attention to the latest scam related to the automotive industry that has been discovered in recent weeks. This scam is to convert old tyres into “semi-new ones” through a retreading system from countries in the East or Russia. Undoubtedly, this practice is very dangerous and seriously endangers the lives of people on the road.
This scam is about making the customer believe they are going to buy a used tyre but that it is in perfect condition with all its tyre tread pattern, when in fact the quality of the tyres is bad and they have been completely rejected but have been manipulated to appear in good condition.
When the compound is worn, the patten is erased warning of the condition of the tyre and exposing the interior of the rubber. If this occurs, the tyre does not grip and we will have serious safety problems. The risk of having an accident involving these types of fake tyres is very high and more so if the driver is ignorant of this fact.
