Are these exactly 36" wide? Some of my stairs are 36.5 or so inches wide... If these are only 36" exactly they'd be too short.

I don't know the defined standard for select and better grade. But I have attached some photos of the treads I received. The photo of the one with the knot is the most variable board regarding appearance, all others look even more uniform. The photo of the end grain is to demonstrate that the boards are not quarter sawn, which may be the industries term for the most select boards, I've never seen an quarter sawn boards for flooring, I think you would only find it now days in furniture use, because of the expense of quarter sawing. You can also see by the end grain that the treads are edge glued boards (each approx 2.25 inches wide) which is really better because treads glued of separate boards will have no tendency to warp or twist, and these boards are perfectly flat with no bow, no cupp and no twist. I have ordered 11 on two different shipments, and I am completely happy with the product.
Here are the photos, note that any curved appearance of the boards is due to photographic distortion from the wide angle camera lens. Read Less

Answer: 
Since they are retreads (only 5/8 inch thick) they are only suitable to attach over other solidly attached treads. That said, they must be attached to the existing tread with urethane adhesive (they actually stamp this requirement on the tread so you won't be tempted to use a water based adhesive that can warp wood. I used "Loctite Premium Construction Adhesive 3X" for approx $4 a tube. They have a 7X Read More
Since they are retreads (only 5/8 inch thick) they are only suitable to attach over other solidly attached treads. That said, they must be attached to the existing tread with urethane adhesive (they actually stamp this requirement on the tread so you won't be tempted to use a water based adhesive that can warp wood. I used "Loctite Premium Construction Adhesive 3X" for approx $4 a tube. They have a 7X which has more holding power but it is $7 a tube, and I don't think it would be necessary. I glued some boards with the 3X and I couldn't pull them apart.
In addition to the adhesive, you do have to drive some small finishing nails to keep the tread from moving while the adhesive dries and sets, which takes 24 hours. Drive these nails in area that will be covered by the addition of a riser. After glueing and nailing, you still should not walk on the treads for 24 hours, the nails are just intended to prevent any minor movement creep of the board during the drying, the nails won't resist board movement by a human body.

0.625 in. x 11.5 in. x 36 in. Unfinished Red Oak Retread is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 78.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Stain ready after a light 220 grit sand. Used Minwax Honey 272 on treads and only ... Great product. Stain ready after a light 220 grit sand. Used Minwax Honey 272 on treads and only a poly sealer on the risers. Did one coat of stain and three coats of poly. If your existing treads has a nose cut it off - I used a jig saw. Minor splintering cutting the edges of the treads - I used a circular saw instead of my miter or table. Used adhesive and 2" finishing nails - tried to hide nails with riser edge. I had structural issues with bottom stringer so took much longer to install. Staining took 4 days. Skirt boards took 4 hours. Install of treads and risers after everything was prepped took 6 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Product, Easy to Install These made my previously carpeted stairs a beautiful focal point. Easy to do, my husband and I are average do it yourselfers, not professionals. We were able to install these and the risers on our 6 steps in an afternoon. Highly recommend!

The retead was an affordable alternative in comparison to quotes to pull out and replace existing treads and risers. I tackled the staining myself and had a flooring person install. Overall I am satisfied with the outcome.... yet there were a two treads that cupped within a few days after install. It may have been due to the installer's use of improper adhesive. I had him pull out and reinstall 2 new treads making sure he used Loctite PL Premium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied Cutomer Although some of the reviews I read on these treads indicated poor product quality, I was absolutely satisfied with all of the treads and risers which were delivered directly to my home. Since we use the staircase every day, I opted to finish all of the pieces before cutting and installing them. However, with a new 60-tooth blade for my table saw and masking tape along the cut lines, the edges all came out clean, with no splintering. I ordered twelve treads (nine standard and three double-return) and fourteen risers, and every piece arrived in excellent condition. I finished the wood with Minwax "Colonial Maple" stain and four coats of polyurethane, and used both glue and finishing nails for installation. I am quite satisfied with the final outcome. Thank you, Home Depot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great solution for an impossible problem. When we renovated our basement, we took off all the glued down carpeting covering the floor and stairs. The carpet was easy to remove from the floor but the stairs became a job from Hades. After scraping glue, sanding, etc., we were told by our contractor to recarpet the stairs...the only area in the house that would have carpet. When I came upon these stair treads, I ordered one set (treads and risers) and the measuring tool (ESSENTIAL). My husband and I managed to cut all the treads and risers IN ONE DAY! Of course it took a few days more to properly polyurethane them for use, but this became one of the easiest project we have done in our renovation.
