Deka- I would never ever fit a part worn tyre. You simply have no idea if it's life. Reality is most of them come from crashed cars and find their way to market. Often German as they have higher standards and can't sell them.
Internal cords or structure could be damaged and the tyre fail suddenly. They are not subject to any testing.
I understand people doing this on little cheap city runabouts, but not performance cars.
