I have that too on one tire.
Its the bands of rubber that they rap it with before they put it in the press.

think of it like pressing playdoh into a mold and some doesn't get pushed in all the way...

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....

my dad used them back in the late 70s and 80s on his sand rails and dune buggies, he said they were awsome, and the way i see it they most likely have gotten better in 20-30 years so i would buy them and run them till theres nothing left but some bead on your rim

I see that this thread has come back from the dead a bit so I will ask my question on here.

I am considering the Treadwright Guard Dog MT"S for my Cherokee build.

Does anyone have these tires or any other tire and had a good experience. I am really close to pulling the trigger on these with the kledge grip.

but they do make the 31 x 10.5 15's that is what I am going for.

I think you can still get larger tires. You just have to call and special order them. Might take a while. To many people ripping through the side walls on the bigger tires leaving them with fewer viable casings i imagine.

I have the 31s on a BFG AT carcass on my TJ and I LOVE them I have a thread on them vvvvv
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f15/t...eview-1062343/

Ohh they run a full 31"s .... Most 31" tires are actually 30" or 29" so it is kinda like a narrow 32" tire.
Which is perfect because it looks big but still fits stock rim offset...

Oh I need to update my other thread....

Glad to hear they are working out well for you. I am going to go with the MT's because of the type of backwoods Wisconsin wheeling we do. AT's seem to gum up on a lot of people. The MTR tread should be livable on the roads too. It will likely be a 75 street/25 wheeling rig and my daily driver.

It was going to be the wife's rig but I am going to do a transfer case swap and give her my Cherokee.

My main concern was the life of the tires. The more I read I might not go with the kedge grip because their website states they dent to wear 15-20 faster. Perhaps I will give them a call. August will be build month for me and I wanted to get some more opinions on Treadwright tires.

I left out that I have the Guard Dog MTs they came on BFG AT carcasses.
They are hooking up great on SoCal desert/mountain stuff no mud yet...
Read my post to get info you can request different things.

From what I have read they get great tread wear milage butt even if you get less than regular brands you could buy new tires later and still save money....

Thanks for the great review Mike! I am looking at getting those same MT's that you have on your TJ. Hopefully I will have as good of luck as you did. From what I have heard Treadwright will take care of you if there is a problem. I might still give them a call and see what they say. Still a little weary but like you said. You are saving some serious coin.

I have the Pumas, and they are great! Very much like the BFG All-Terrain, except that the Pumas have much nicer wet-weather manners.

I am also considering the treadwrights. I would like to know how to initiate an actual survey to find out how many people have had a bad experience with them. The only bad experiences were from people who heard from a guy who heard from a guy or something like that. I don't think I have seen any first hand complaints.

well, I started posting on this thread after someone brought it back from the dead. If you wanted to start a poll of Treadwright patrons I bet you could start a new thread under "Tires & Wheels"

Poll options are in the Advanced options.

I'm 95% going to go with Treadwright.
