Treadwright?

Does anyone see a real problem with running retreads? Has anyone had any experience, good and bad, with these tires?

I've heard them praised on here a couple of times. While you wait, do a search.

I bought a set that I run on my offroad teardrop trailer. I actually purchased a set of 5 as I have plans to build another utilty trailer as well. With the teardrop, they've been pulled across the country a few times and they didn't fall apart.

I mounted them on my JK for a short time just because and they worked well. They are the BFG AT style, even on BFG AT carcases, but are slightly louder than real ones. Otherwise they work nice. I didn't take them offroad though so I can't comment on that.

personally...

I had a couple threads, one here in Modified. I was about to drop 900 for 5x3153 shipped for my daily driver...never had anyone whos ran them say anything negative. There are alot of reviews, most good, on other forums. Wouldnt be hard to search

My deal was would 35" TWs be better than stock rubi 32"s on my 3.21 geared X? I decided to start taking the park and ride daily to justify putting 34" LTBs on my ride!
..

Soon to be a vendor!!!
Looking for a good Rat Rod JK donor vehicle.

I run them on my stock Rubicon wheels. You can't beat them for the price. For 5 35" tires it was just under $900 shipped and $60 mounted and balanced at Wal-Mart.

I ran a set of their bfg all-terrain look a likes on my tow rig. 285/70/17s put over 10k on them before I sold the truck and didnt even notice any wear on them. They were great in the snow also. I just wish they made them in a 37" for a 17 inch rim. They wouldnt be able to keep them in stock. lol

I'm running the 265's with the old school MTR tread right now. Getting close to 10k miles and showing very little wear. When these wear out I'll try a set of 285's.

Got 285-75-17's BFG style on my Duramax right now with ~30k on them. Haven't had a bit of trouble. 4 were less than $600 shipped to Louisiana.

If they made a 35 BFG AT with the kedge grip, it would be what would go on the JK when it comes tire time. They don't the last time I talked to them, though.

I've posted before about how much I love my 315/70R17 Treadwright Guard Dogs. They balanced great, they handle on-road great, and they simply kick ass off-road. I've had them for 3 seasons and 8,000 miles, but I've only just gotten a chance to use them in the snow for the first time this last weekend. So far I think their snow performance is great. In every other terrain, they've been terrific. My only criticism is that they definitely hum louder than you would expect, given their mild M/T tread pattern. But with frequent rotation, they've worn evenly and they've stayed reasonably quiet. They're definitely an awesome tire for the money!

I'm curious, what kind of carcass do they use? Do they say the old tire brand name on the side?

they use a few diff ones, and yes they still have the old writing on them.

BFG

goodyear

you request that all your sidewalls match and they will, just might have to wait if they are out of stock.

It is my understanding that TreadWright will always supply all 4 or 5 tires with matching casings.

Mine are BFG All Terrain T/A KO casings.

I spent all Thanksgiving playing around offroad in my Jeep, and these tires work like magic in the snow. Blazing new trails at street pressure, they're not really distinguishable from other tires, but aired down to 20lbs they really start coming into their element.

Once I got up to 8,000 feet elevation, the snow started getting cold and deep and 20lbs of air wasn't cutting it, so I aired down to 12lbs and these tires became a whole new animal. I didn't realize just how hard they were pulling my Jeep through the snow until I backed up and saw the huge piles of snow I was plowing forward as both axles were dragging underneath the snow.

I think the aggressive A/T or mild M/T tread pattern is optimal for Sierra Nevada snow conditions. The open tread allows the tires to shed snow readily while still retaining a lot of biding edges. The Kedge Grip seems to really grab the snow hard so that the tread blocks can work better to find traction instead of simply relying on the voids between the treads for traction.

I've lived in snow country my whole life, and I am truly impressed with how much traction these Guard Dogs have in the snow.
