TreadWright Warden Tire Review

so i was looking for tires and someone told me too look on TreadWright. I went there and found some A/T tires called Wardens they look like BFG A/T. i was wondering if any of you are running these tires and how are they? here is a link for them.

I also have the MTs and they are great! A friend of mine had the Wardens on his Dakota and he also praises them to this day (2 years later).

I am in between the Wardens and the Guard Dogs M/Ts myself. I am leaning more toward the M/Ts.

To the above three posters, how do you like the M/Ts?

Are they loud on the road?

Are they okay for a DD?

How are they in the mud?

To the OP, not trying to hijack your thread, just looking for more info on treadwrights that might help us both

Theres noting wrong with these retreads. You may come across biased people that compare then to semi truck retreads, but they use a different process, and they dont go on trucks that weigh 30,000 pounds.

They are ok for a DD.

Search "goodyear MTR" on google and that should answer your other questions.

i had their MTR retreads and i have no complaints. i had them in a 31x10.5x15 for about a 1.5 years. when i took them off last month to put on my new 33's they still had 40-50% on them to which i was even suprised. yes they are loud on hte road but that did not bother me, yes they were on my DD, and yes i did wheel the crap out of them and they held up to every bit even with the airing down i did. i literally used them on every terrain and never once found my self stuck. they were great in sand, dirt, mud, snow and rocks.

if i wasnt upgrading to my 33's i would have kept these any day. highly recomended to anyone wanting a good tire at a cheap price.

I am running the warden AT's. I got them a couple of months ago and I drive 2 hours a day. They haven't appeared to wear at all and are not loud on the highway. Good price. I didn't pay for the kedge grip but it came anyways.

My ZJ has the MTs and while there is a noticeable hum at 60+ MPH it isnt bad. You can still hold a conversation without yelling and you dont have to crank the radio to get rid of it.

I say they are a great DD tire. However if you deal with snow/ice ANY mud tire is going to suck and you'll be sliding around. But thats the nature of the beast. They also balanced out well for me. I bought 31's and I didnt have to use more then 1.5oz per side. (FYI, BFG ATs and Goodyear Duratracs require a LOT more then this. I deal with them everyday.) Its hard to see in the pics but they come with about 21/31in of tread.

In the mud they where pretty good as well. I got through most pits at a local ORV park. There was only one pit that gave me trouble but it was a LOT deeper then expected (hydrolocked my buddies Ram).

People come up all the time and ask me what tire I have. I say it is a hybrid BFG AT that has yet been released and is still in testing.

Nitto's aren't that bad. I mean to be fair, it was muddy on a 3% slop.
