Default Best Brands of Tire for stretch?

Can any brand/model tires be stretched? If not, I think it would be helpful to have a thread with all the tires that stretch well, and ones to stay away from.

Is it a bad idea to stretch used tires? Not trash ones, I mean used but nearly new tires..

I love my Falken 452s but they have a bad rap. I have not had nothing but good things from them

I ran sumitomos, tho not stretching. I think they are horrable tyres.
I swiched to stretched Toyo Proxes T1R, i swear they are WAY more grippy and less noisey. I luv them.

I am running falken 512s 215/45/17 on a 10" wheel. It stretches better than any tire I have ever seen.
