Where are the advanced options?? I am not a full member so I may not be able to use it anyway.
I am glad someone revised this thread. The Treadwrights are way cheap compared to the new tires..

Would be the "Go Advanced" option at the bottom when you create a new thread.

The ones on my jeep are great!
I would not say as good or better than a regular tire but EXCELLENT for the price.....
They seem to wander a little ... could just be the MT tread though....
I didn't have the radio on yesterday and I noticed they are still loud , I guess I just always turn up the radio anyway and never seemed to notice.

I am still getting vibration on the tires of my F250 though.......?????
I haven't had a chance to test different air pressures though.

MAN! I hope I don't have to call and ask for another tire.
I may just sell them and buy real BFGs . Not sure this hassle is worth it.

How can the jeep tires be so great and the big truck tires not so great?

I have heard that if you call them they might be able to do it. You probably won't be able to get matching casings but it might be possible.

No harm in giving them a call.

Not anybody I would trust, at least. Have you considered selling the 15" wheel setup and going 16"? You lose a hair fraction of a sidewall (especially with a 33" tire), and you have many more options for tires.

Not sure of the brand name, but these are the retreads that I run. I've lost count of how many sets i've had. I've not had any problems at all.

Treadwrigths gave me a ball park of $1300.00 shipped to Winnipeg for 5 35/11.5/17's . They will be ready to ship these in late Sept. I think for that price I'm gonna be sporting Treadwrigths on the Rubi ! That would be 2 tires in that approx. size up here .........

I realize this post is pretty old, but I thought I'd throw some useful info in just for reference. I ran a set of Treadwright's "warden" (BFG All-terrain) on my xj almost 40k, then sold the truck and the tires were still fine. I just bought another set for my new truck and have had a terrible time. 1 of the 4 was junk when I got it - giant chunk missing out of the sidewall. No problems at all, they warrantied it with no hesitation. The replacement tire they sent me was cracked and dry rotted. Then, 2 days after getting the tires on the truck a completely separate tire came apart on the freeway. It spit a chunk of tread off about 3 inches in diameter. Needless to say, this set is trash. HOWEVER, after sending them pics and speaking with one of the guys on the warranty end of things, they're sending me an entirely new set and have been nothing short of phenomenal to deal with. I've worked in the automotive industry my entire career and I realize problems happen during manufacturing...it's just reality. Nobody's perfect and these guys have been completely professional and owned up to the problem. Needless to say I'll continue to deal with them. Even though this was a hassle, I have an extra vehicle and it's still worth the tremendous deal for me. Just my 2 cents....

That's because we here in South Dakota are old-fashioned. We keep people happy.

Back to the Treadwrights, I am really happy with mine still. One tire has always had a bit of a vibration around 38mph, and they would have sent me another one in a heartbeat (I'd have a brand new spare, too). However, for a daily driver, the tires are fine. I plan on transferring to a 16" tire setup, which will give me many more options for a precise tire size.

You guys have inspired me to get a set for the JK. If these are coming on name brand casings why not.
