Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joyce Best tread idea ever
I searched for the best replacement for the carpet that we took off our stairs. I didn't want to have stairs fully carpeted and found these treads to be the best choice. They are extremely easy to work with. The adhesive backing is awesome. The curved shaped front holds on to the step great. Our dog has no issues going up the stairs. I also bought the carpet squares and they match perfect to the the treads. Friends are taking this idea for their house as well. I would buy this product again if I had more stairs. We didn't even have to replace the builder stairs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DCharlie Great look for my stairs
The carpet treads were easy to install, but I did have to use a rubber mallet to knock them onto the front of the step. That insured they were set properly, before I peeled the sticky back to press them to the floor. They have been on for two weeks now, and look great and are holding on properly.

The bullnose of the treads perfectly fit the bullnose of the stairs. Very easy to install.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lynn Great Alternative to Runner
The people who give these bad reviews need to actually use a tape measure before ordering. These are made for a regular staircase, not basements etc so these cover a wide 10" step and are made to wrap a round a standard stair. If you measure properly, you should be able to figure out if these will fit.
These are high quality and will save you time waiting for measurement and installation on a runner. They look great too. Very plush and the colors are rich.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Swift14 Was hoping this would be better
If you're looking for a quick coverup for bullnose steps, like my basement stairs, visually they're not bad. But be warned-the bullnose end, which I originally thought was a great idea and would make these treads well worth the money, are all too small of a diameter to fit snugly around the end of my step. I posted photos that show the gap between the end of the step and the inner curve of the tread. At least a 1.25" gap. That end is backed by a hard plastic that you can't mold around your step, and I even tried using a rubber mallet to gently bop them onto the stair. No luck. Even worse, the thin adhesive is very unevenly applied - there was no glue at all on the hard plastic bullnose part. So I see already there's more movement of the tread than I'd like as you step on them. Good thing the plastic backing is pretty rigid or it would be quite a safety hazard. It may still be - only time will tell.
The adhesive itself is like a super-thin coat of rubber cement, and is not really very tacky. I'm hoping that the fresh paint on my stairs that I applied before installing these carpet treads will help them stick better, but it also could be that the glue becomes more permanent the longer it's actually down. I may yet put a few tacks in the back corners if they start to slip.
Last thing that's kind of a disappointment is that the treads don't cover the entire depth of the step. If they fit the bullnose end they might, but I have a gap of about an inch of bare wood in front of the riser on each stair.
All in all they look much better than bare wood, but for a few hundred bucks I'm not feeling super confident I got my money's worth.

It became necessary to install an interim step from my kitchen going into a sunken family room. My wife was having trouble with the 9" step up. I needed to cover the interim step to match the family room carpet. The carpeted stair tread fit easily onto the step, has adhered perfectly, and the preformed bullnose protects against anyone falling onto the step edge and hurting themselves. (Yes that really happened)

The old stair tread I bought from the store is not good. This one is much better. Very easy to install and looks so beautiful.
