Retred Tires?

Has anybody used retred tires? I was doing some research and found them in my 4wheeling mag, when I went online it sounded legit. Any help and or testomonies would be appreciated. The website I was looking at was http://www.treadwright.com/.

My one and only experience with retreads includes sliding sideways down I-45 in Houston in a less than desired fashion. Never again will I ever have them for everyday use. Maybe O.K. for offroad, but that would be it.

I bought some retreads from treadwright. Great company and great customer support. you can even tell them what casing you want. I daily drive all terrain (its similar to a bfg at pattern) tires and not a problem. When I got them mounted and balanced the shop people noticed they were retreads and couldn't believe how good they looked and how good they balanced. Plus they come with a warranty and for quarter-half the price you cant beat it. Retreads aren't like they use to be like back in the 70s. Its more computer automated and reliable. I dont think I would ever buy new tires for any dd or off-road car but only for a track car or something of that caliber.

I have put 5k on them and off-road them a few times and no problems. Even wear and everything.

I have had my Guard dogs(MTR knock offs ) for about a year and they have been great. I drive about 300 miles a week now all hwy plus all the weekend wheeling I can do and don't have one complaint. I paid about $550 to my door for my 33's. Only issue I see is that don't seem to carry 33's in 15 inch rims anymore something about not getting enough good carcasses to keep up with demand, they have 31's and plenty in 16's it seems like. Had mine in a week and I ordered them on Christmas day.

The guard dogs are the ones I was looking at. They look pretty aggresive, I'm going from a 225 to 31's so I can't wait to see how much better they look and how much better they preform.
