I've had mine on for about 1000 miles. I honestly don't think they are loud for a mud fire. I'm running grade E 285 75 16 with kedge grip. They killed my gas milage but any tire that big is going to do that. I'm amazed at how well they grab. I cant park in the yard any more. When I leave I take the grass with me. I think I'm a treadwright user for life. I feel as confident in these tires as I have any other tire. Be forewarned!!!!! They stink!!!!! I don't know if it's just the kedge grip or not, but I left them in my room while I was gone on a trip. It smelled like a 3 day old deer carcass when I got back. I haven't noticed it in my cab. (I have one as a spare in my trunk) buy them. Great to deal with too.

Buddy of mine just put these on about a month ago 265/70R17 guard dogs. Only issue with them is that 2 would not balance correctly. The shop did the best they could we mounted them up and everything seems fine no vibes. Ride ok and grip well. Getting a set of 315/75R16's for myself soon enough the jeep looks like its tires are to small with 285/75R16s.

That is one thing that seems to pop up occasionally.
Some of the cores they use from certain brands seems to be inherently unbalanced thus giving the retread a slightly out of round shape.
If it ever bothers him he could contact customer service and usually it seems they will go out of their way to try to find some perfect ones to exchange for the out of round tires from a couple other topics I've read on other sites.

In all honesty neither of us even knows which ones are the unbalanced ones don't remember if they got put on the front or back.

Just recieved my tires in today in the 285/75r16 Guard Dogs Kedge Grip. Very very impressed by the tires at first glance. Took exactly one week from payment to get here which is impressive. Going to be traveling in the **** tomorrow with a cold front and snow moving in, ill let you know how they do.

I think I might have already posted this, but you MUST tell the shop to balance your TW tires on the STATIC setting only. If you do this, they will ride as smooth as glass on the highway. In fact, TW states that in order to maintain your warranty, you have to get these balanced in STATIC setting only. That is the way the tires are made at the factory...to be balanced this way.

You have to request this at the shop, as most shops now days are using the dynamic setting by default.

i skimmed through the thread but i didn't spot an answer...i'm looking to replace the tires on my jeep around tax time i'm wanting to stick to the same size that is currently on my zj (235/75r15) and i was wondering about the road noise with the ATGs and how it compares to some of the brand name ATs (BFG AT, Duratrac, etc)

Road noise seems almost the same to me. I had bfg mud terrains and all terrains, and the treadwright equivalnts. No knowticable difference.

There are many guys here at the FD that use them on all their vehicles and swear by them. They use these tires on interstate, highway and offroad here in the Black HIlls of South Dakota. I am actually going to be ordering a set for my LJ here in a week.

I have these on my XJ - 215 85 R15 - they are AWESOME. Until I get caught on my belly being a smaller jeep, I'm able to keep up on guys on 34x9.5 Narrow SS swampers.

They ride great on the highway for what they are - mine are 10 ply, load range E truck tires. No vibes, shakes, etc. A bit loud but that's to be expected out of such an aggressive mud tire.

I recommend them to anyone. When I buy an XJ in the spring for daily driving, it's getting a set of the ATG tires in 235-75r15.

My tire size 215-85r16 is a truck tire and I couldn't find anything agressive for around $100 a tire except the treadwrights. Saved about $400 compared to a set of Dura Tracs!

I've had my 265/75/16 A/t's from Treadwright for 2 years now. Can't wait to get rid of the damn things.

The tread is flaky. I have many lugs with big cuts, and chunks missing.

2 of the tires are older than 2006. (One is from 04- eek) All suffer from dryrot.

The biggest issue is the cracking and flaking of the recap. This tires just look awful, and the sidewalls are very weak.

Also, they're heavy as hell.

They've been used heavily,but still, new tires would not do this.


I work on Mopars
