Treadwright (retread) poll

This is intended to be a poll hopefully yielding helpful info to supplement all the threads about retreads and Treadwright tires.

Please contribute to the poll if:

1. You have used a retread of any type in the last 10 years.
(I say 10 because if you go much farther back they may not have been the same)

Please do NOT contribute to the poll if:
1. Your ____ had some retreads and they were great.
2. Your ____ had some and they sucked.
3. You heard_________about retreads.


I think that if people who have ACTUALLY USED them will give the most reliable info.

Thanks, and I hope this info will be useful to all.....

I've had good expreinces with Treadwright. I've had the ATG's (235/75r15) on my 88 for 2 years and then traded them to my friend @ 25k miles, he still has them on his jeep. I made 2 cross country drives out to pheonix and wheeled with them out there. They were great in the snow/rain here in Ohio. They cleaned out well in the mud.

On my 95 ive got the Guard dog mt's (31x10.5r15). They got good wet weather traction, and they very impressive off road in the mud and sandstone I wheel on. I can usaully keep up with my buddy who runs tractor tires.

Both have good highway and DD drivability. A littl bit of humming but not really noticable

Oh, you are talking about 16" rims.... That is what Treadwright is showing on their "specials" when the sight first opens. They have 15" also if you look at the regular offerings.

Almost 1 year and 10000 miles later, they dont look as if theyve lost any tread at all! TWO THUMBS UP!

I had the AT's in 31's, I like them.

I got real MT/r's, hated them.

I now run 32 inch Treadwright At's and I like them a lot.

I work on Mopars

I currently run 265/70/R17s Guard Dogs (MTRs) which actually measure big at 32.25in and i use them on my DD WJ Overland. I do a lot of driving between MD and NYC and while they have road noise which increased with wear and they wear faster than regular tires i would still say they are a great value and i would recommend them to anyone.

Edit: BTW, i have around 5,xxx on mine and the tread is still good.

Midshipmen Patrick 1/C USMMA DD: 2004 Golf GLS TDI 43mpg and 2002 Overland: Zone 4in, 32in Treadwright MTRs, IRO upper CAs, lift gate light mod, Alpine/Polk speakers, and power inverter with USB in dash mod, CB, custom rear swing out tire carrier Build thread

I have TW in the knock off MT/r flavor. Im running 31x10.5x15 on 4in bs Black Rock steelies.

I have had them for about a month. They came on matching BFG A/T, two had a few patches in them but they hold air.

They balanced fine, had them up to 70 on the highway with no problems. I had them down to 15psi with no problems.

Shipping was fast, customer service from TW was awesome. For the price you cant beat them.

They came with my rubi rims.

Load rating E, 245/75/r16. The ride was awful, and OMG they wore fast.

Even the guys on 35 inch Mt/rs get way more life than the Rubi spec mt/rs.
