Tread Wright 265/70/17

http://www.treadwright.com/p-65-265-...dog-m-t-c.aspx

Here is the link to the tires that I am ordering. I have had the jeep for 2 weeks now and look to have the lift and wheel spacers done by the end of the month.

I was going to do it myself but $400.00 and Hellbent Offroad here in St. Louis will do it, and that includes parts.

I was wondering if anyone had heard anything about these tires, or what their opinion on the Retreads were. The jeep will stay on road for commuting during the week, but will spend a fair amount of time in the mud, and muddy trails.

This site helped me find everything to get started, except a bumper, so I figured someone would have a lead on these.

Thanks

I think everyone has mixed opinions on retread tires. Im not sure if I would ever put them on my Jeep since I have my 3 year old in it all of the time but that doesnt mean they are not a good tire. I believe there is a member or two on the forum running treadwright tires and havent had any issues with them.

Yea I am planning on getting the retreads also when my stockers wear out. My buddy has the guard dogs in a 315/75/17 on his 3/4 diesel and pulls his 8k lb goose neck trailer all the time the tires hold up well and have caused him no trouble. He has 10k miles and no complaints. I personally dnt know why people have negative feelings about these tires they are made nearly the same way new tires are they just use recycled casings. Way I see it if ur willing to lift ur vehicle and put on spacers how much more of a risk would retreads be? So guess I'm saying go for it u won't b disappointed in the tires.

Just like the spacers have a bad rap from years ago so do retreads. It's just old ways of thinking that the retreads will throw the tread on the highway causing you to flip over or the spacers will cause your tires to just fall off. Lots have changed since these problems but the damage is done public opinion wise.

Also if you YouTube "treadwright tires" or guard dogs u will find quite a few videos of people beating on these tires like they would any others. Also there are some 4wheel magazine guys testing out and reviewing the tires to give u their take.

Well, for whatever it's worth, we all know retreads still loose the tread from time to time...the evidence is laying on or alongside the road.
As far as why?????who knows.
The carcass may have had a issue, the replacement tread may not have cured properly..anyones guess.
The mere fact that it still happens is enouph to make me not consider them.....that and have you ever seen what a tread peeling off does to a fender?
I have.....you'll need a new tire and a fender.
But, the other side of the coin is more of a percentage thing.
What percentage fails?
Unfortunatly, there is no follow up on the failure end, so no data exists.
Back to the fact I still see the remains on the road from time to time.

Regardless, there are indeed a few members using these and there have been no unfavorable reports.....that was the OP's question.

Good luck,
Rob

And we all know wheel spacers fail from time to time and cause catastrophic damage. It just comes down to buying a product from a well known and reputable comapany and proper instillation and upkeep of the product u put on.

I believe the treads your talking about are from semi trucks. I don't think there comparable to passenger car tires and is were the retreads get a lot of there bad rap from. I've seen these tires retreaded before and would imagine the ones for cars are done with much more quality control and stricter tolerances. Just my opinion I don't have or have ever used retreads myself.

THank you all for the info. I will YOutube them as well.

I have had a BFG all terrain blow out at 80 mph on my old K5 Blazer and sh*t happens. So i will post picks and updates after the lift and see how the tires wear and handle here in the midwest.
