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.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 74 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! April 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by went from carpet to wood stairs I will use this product again for the next set of stairs to be done. August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! July 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice looking retread We installed retreads on our stairs three years ago. The retreads stained beautifully and were easy to install. Be sure to purchase the template. The stairs look great. However, we had to replace one of the retreads this year because the front of it broke off. The front piece is a separate piece. We had some remodeling done this year, and it probably broke off from men going up and down the stairs so much. Under normal conditions, I think there would no be a problem. June 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Quality, Warped, One Received Broken, Others Cracked Absolutely unsatisfied. Most of the treads arrived with a warping across the full length and very noticeable. Nearly impossible to install because they wouldn't lay flat. The boxes arrived looking like they fell off the plane on their way to me. One tread had a big piece broken off, and several have cracks in them. Horrible, and HD doesn't stock them in store so I'm screwed. Do not purchase. $350+ that I'll never see again. July 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality Product A couple of the treads had some minor checks in the ends of the boards as to be commonly expected with oak, but they didn't advance more than a couple of inches. And although the checks are potentially a weakness in the grain they had not yet caused any significant separation, they were mainly dark streaks in the oak grain and only gave the wood more character. Furthermore since these treads are to be installed onto subtreads with urethane adhesive, the treads will be completely anchored so that checks can never develop any further or separate. The treads are straight, flat, no bowing, no cupping. I think these treads are as good as you'll find in the tread market, and for this price they are definitely better than I expected. March 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding product Excellent product, easy install of the treads. Looks great! April 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product for a DIY'r You will need a table saw, miter saw, nail gun, orbital sander and a belt sander. I bought the unfinished red oak treads and managed to match my Bruce hardwoods fairly closely with Sherwin-Williams stain. After sanding with 120 grit and wiping down, I applied 4 coats of Minwax Poly for floors over several days. sanded between coats 1 & 2 with 400 grit. I bought some 1 x 8 x 8' finger jointed primed planks to use as risers and their true 7 1/4" worked great without ripping them down. The Stairtek treads were outstanding red oak and they worked out just fine. I did need to sand the sides of the built up moulding with the belt sander and 50 grit as they are 1/16 proud on the sides. I used PL Urethane adhesive and 18 gauge brads in my Ryobi One gun to secure the treads and the risers. October 26, 2014
