By header I'm going to have to guess you really mean a stringer, that what the risers and treads are attached to.
What's "retro" treads? If you mean factory made stairs, there fine in new construction but can be a pain to get inside and in place in a finished house.
No one here can see what your seeing without a picture.
If your currant stairs run, rise, headroom, width and railings meet current codes and the stringers were constructed and installed correctly there's no reason to not work with what you have.

I like the carpet on my basement floor and stairs. The wife even made me buy from the same lot number so the floor and stairs would match. Dang those remnant ends would have been cheaper.
