I will not run Retread tires Other then working in the off road industry, I have sold tires for almost a Decade Retreads are sketchy I've seen so many have the cap separate from the sidewalls my buddy has the new Guarddogs in a 17" and his sidewall is starting to split from the cap and his are the B2B tire that are less then 8 months old with 2 wheeling trips on them.

Bought some wheels and tires today off my neighbor. They are 35x12.50x15 general grabbers (red letters) on American racing ATX Slots wheels. they have roughly 1500 miles on them and they were siped also. He stopped driving the XJ cause the Unibody has torn by the trackbar mount and by the steering box. I'll be installing them on my XJ and running the 33" km2's that are on my XJ on the YJ until I swap out the D35 for a D44 or 8.8

Heres a pic of the wheel and tire setup on my neighbors rig

My buddy put a set off those on his f250 after a month they were torn up. But your results may vary.

A f250 is a heavy *** truck nearly triple the weight of an XJ. 3/4-1 ton trucks eat tires also. I have a few friends who've ran them for 1-2 years with no issues on Jeeps.
