    Default treadwright retreads

    I have been looking for a way to save a few bucks on the jeep, and wanting 33 11.5 (285 75 r16) it was hard to find a tire i liked. until i found treadwright retreads. the 285s were 80 bucks a tire and used the old BFG mud terrian pattern.

    I know you guys have heard horror stories about retreads. I got them just before the heat wave hit the DC metro area, they held up to that. drove 75+ mph down to the trail and back hit some deep mud holes, not as deep as chris. and they walked right through. spun up on rocks trying to get over. abused the hell out of the tires, and they are still round and rolling.

    the only gotcha with them is the seams are extremely obvious and it took 3-4 ounces per side to get them to balance but now they ride great and handle well even under heavy braking.

    my vote if your looking for a cheap spare(up to 33in) or a good set of 33s cheap these are the way to go.

    Sharp looking tires at a great price. They did hold up really well considering the abuse you put them through this past weekend. I will be looking at the treadwright tires when it comes time to put new shoes on the jeep.

    I bought a set of the 33" MTs (back when they were Hi-tech tires) on my last Scrambler fand used them for 6 years. They were very streetable and wore extremely well. Offroad, they were as good as any MT. Right before I sold the Jeep, I noticed the sidewalls were beginning to crack a little.

    They were $80 a piece and definately worth it! I wish they made 35s.

    They will be making 35's again in the future... They had a problem with the bigger tires and DESTROYED the molds for them... They are now working on getting molds made for the bigger sizes...

    I'm running them on BOTH of my vehicles and LOVE them...

    Here is a pic of them on my Xterra's rims... (285/75R16)
