I have a sketchy looking tire that has started to separate at one of the lugs, I have been running theses for a year and have about 12500 mile on them. I guess that is what I get for $110 a tire.

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.

New tires do that




Looks like you got a bad batch or ride the curb. PO said thats what happened with mine.

That or someone is taking corners too fast too often. Indicated by how far up the sidewall the shaves are.

im running them on my DD weekend warrior and i love them!! They do great on the rocks and are good on the highway as well. Assuming they continue to serve me well, treadwright will have my business for a long time to come!

No, I use my jeep. These tires just aren't good enough to last in harsh driving. Sidewalls are too old and brittle.

It happened wheeling. (Not specifically here though)

Drop any radial tire to 15 PSI and constantly run the tire up the side of a rock. Report back here with results. If you use any radial tires sidewall to climb they will start to peel like that. The sidewalls on treadwrights are all revulcanized after the tread is put on. They will last just fine on most trails, but they will not last 2 years as a weekend warrior trail vehicle. They are still a retread tire and still a radial tire. BFG A/T's are also known for that exact problem on older tires. Like has been said that is something that happens when the tires are not used like designed. We have plenty of people that I wheel with on a lot rougher/bigger rocks than you posted photo's of that have done so without a problem. This on top of the fact that you are running the cheapest tires that treadwright offers...

I'm not arguing with this. I agree with everything you've said.

Point being, these don't last the way I've used them. Im going km2 or kevlar next.

A lot of the time time it depends on what casings you get. I asked specificly for BFG AT KO's because of the strong 3 ply sidewalls. They have held up to a lot of abuse. Others have run tires that were not C rated, or not KO casings as re-treads and had poor results.

I've had mine a year... I don't think they will replace it. I didn't like the ones on my F250 ... Now this.

I have liked them so far on the TJ butt....... Thing is these tires are taller than a normal 31" tire.... so I'd have to get a 32" tire locally or send away for a new Treadwright ... I think I'm just gonna buy some 33"s off craigslist or used from a tire shop. can't afford new ........

Stay away from treadwrights. They used to be great tires but apparently have changed compounds and do not last. I used to recommend them to everyone, but the set I have on my dually right now are at half thread with only 6600
Miles on them. My cousin got 19k out of his with constant rotations. My other buddy got 15k out of them being an idiot. The real deal Bfg all terrains will get 60k out of them. While treadwrights might cost 1/2 the price, they only last 1/3 of the miles.

I have had a set last 50k and they held up good no dry rotting or cracking, but the newer ones i got all have the cracking.
