just a thought.. Most Big rig truck tires are re-treads. Just think about how many miles a year they put on thier tires.. I honestly think you will have no issues.

I had a tire shop tell me they wont hold up to serious offroading . They say they will seperate on rocks and trails cuz of the way the tire gets twisted and flexed. Is this true? I was looking at them too but am unsure. I use mine as DD and off-roading. I need new tires soon and need to know what I sould do.

I've abused these tires more than any one should, mainly because they were so cheap. The set I have now took nothing balance. If you get them you'll be satisfied

Do you think that a salesman at a Ford dealership would tell you to go buy a Jeep?

Think about it....

For (4) 31" tires...

Beverly Hills, CA - $101.64
Spokane, WA - $83.64
Austin, TX - $83.64
Albany, NY - $119.96
Miami, FL - $119.96

Any location closer to South Dakota will be cheaper.
(I live an hour away from Treadwright )

Has anyone run the kedge grip tires? For the popular sizes (235 & 31"), the regular tread is hard to find in stock, but the kedge grip is usually available.

Oh, and I think I will be going down to the treadwright business sometime soon. Will keep everyone posted.

I got my tires in today. I know everyone wants details, so I inspected and took some pictures. Total price was $297.00 shipped to my door (I live 2 hours away).

These are the 235/75-15 ATG (P). The (C) tires must be made from 2 ply carcasses, because these showed a higher load rating on the website. Actually this specific tire did not show a load rating, but the 235 Mud tires did.

The ONLY blems I see are the center portions of a couple outside lugs that are rounded for some reason. It looks like the siping machine had a blade issue. There are only 4-5 of these 'bad' lugs on each tire.

Here are pics....

I have the BFG looking 285s with the Kedge grip, I still only have less then 5k miles on them so far but I haven't had any traction problems at all

Very informative thread! If my BFG A/Ts ever die I'll probably get the Tread Wright knock offs.

I usually air mine down to 20psi when I hit the high country, and I've had zero issues after 3,000 miles.

Those are the atg's, looks good. I was going to order a set but they said they are 2-3 weeks on back order. But they had the crawler m/t's ready to ship so i ordered a set of 5 of those with kedge grip in a 235 75 15. Cost me 410.00 shipped to north Denver.
