Opinion on Treadwright tires...

So, I'm getting a WJ that needs new tires. Don't have it yet, pick it up on Saturday afternoon.

Anyhow, I'm looking at Costco, BJ's, PepBoys, etc...and they look like they'll be $600+ before mounting and balancing.

I've read up on Treadwright tires here on the forum. Reviews seem to be pretty positive. I'm wondering, since this will primarily be a daily driver to and from work...how loud do you think the below tires will be? They are the "WARDEN" formerly ATP.

https://www.treadwright.com/p-34-245...den-a-t-e.aspx

Also, if I go with 245/75R/16 on a stock 2004 WJ, do you think I'll run into any rubbing or clearance issues?

Thanks,
JT

I'm currently running the wardens in the b2b and loving them. Had a few sets of the guard dogs before with no problems just wanted something a little quieter.

I am going to get a set when the time is right. I am tired of getting boned by the cost of a set of 4 freakin tires. (read: Goodyear)

They're going to BLOW UP!! ZOMG!!! how can you put others at such risk as using a treadwright tire?!?!?! Think of the kittens man!!

Now that that is done....

I have 12k+ miles on my 245/75R16 Guard Dogs and love them. They are noisy, but they are a mud tire and I knew they would make noise on the road.
Mine mounted and balanced easily according to my tire guy that I use.

I do not think a 245/75R16 will fit on a stock height WJ, at least not without major trimming and rubbing issues. I could be wrong, but you may want to research your size options a little more.

Im glad to see a host of positive reviews without the "you cant run retreads blah blah blah" horse poo. I just ordered a set of the P235/65R17 Puma's an hour ago.

I'm currently running O.E. MT/R's, 245/75R16, with no lift on the factory wheels. Same tires as the Guard Dogs. I get slight rub when turned full lock on the lower control arms, but thats it.

Absolutely love the Treadwrights. I have 245/75R16 Wardens on my 2000 Limited with no rubbing on stock suspension. Although, my WJ did come with the Upcountry suspension. They currently have about 2500-3000 miles on them and work great (plus, they look good too!).

EDIT: Oh, one other thing about that tire. It's an E rated tire which really isn't necessary for a WJ... but considering the price, I went with it anyways. Basically, if you want to air it down (which will void the warranty), it won't do much because of the sidewall ply. I have that exact set of tires and the E rating hasn't caused any issues, and never will. On the bright side, that tire has a beefy sidewall.

And, I love how they look like BFG ATs, but it says GoodYear on the side... The B2B wasn't available when I ordered my set back in March.

245/65/17 or 245/70/17 will be the biggest you can run with no rubbing.

I running the 265/70/17 guard dogs. They are the best all around tire I've had in a long time. Have about 5k on them now.

Most that talk trash about these tires haven't even ran them so don't bother with them.

This is so true. Those who have owned Treadwright tires have done nothing but praise them. Even when something went wrong, people still praised Treadwright for having such amazing customer service and supplied them with new tires to replaced what was damaged. I've heard horror stories from other big name brands as well... lemons are out there.

I've heard many say that the 245/75/16 size is too big for stock. With the Wardens you have linked there, I can vouch otherwise. They were also perfect for my college budget!

I'm gonna go completely opposite on this and tell you I havent gotten these yet but i've researched the crap out of them and i think that they will be great. I've read tons of posts on them and not one complaint on them from someone that has actually ran them that i can find. seriously thinking about a full set when it's time
