I have run at least 3 sets of these tires in the Guard Dog and Warden patterns. My father has run at least 3 or 4 sets of them. Amongst us, we've had ZERO failures.
I personally have towed heavy loads with them, driven them in 100 degree heat on the interstate, driven them in sub-zero ice and snow, mud, rocks, roots, dirt... you name it and I've done it on these tires. They work exactly like a "new" tire, if not better.
I'll point it out again.. the failure rate on Treadwright tires is something like 2%..which is lower than the failure rate among "new" tires. People should be afraid of spending money on new tires rather than Treadwrights if you want to be technical about it.
Things to keep in mind:
1) You MUST get the tire shop to balance these with the machine set to STATIC setting. That's how you will get the Treadwrights to ride smooth...and that's how you will preserve your warranty from Treadwright. Most tire shops use the Dynamic setting.. make sure you specify otherwise.
2) Treadwrights are 8-12 lbs. heavier than the tire they are built on originally was. So, if you get a BFG KO casing that originally weighed 60 lbs. as a new tire... after the Treadwright process the tire will now weight almost 70 lbs.
3) Treadwrights are taller than the tire they are built on originally was. A "new" 285/75-16 tire might measure out to 32" when on the Jeep.. but a Treadwright 285/75-16 tire will be a true 33" tall. Therefore, you cannot mix a Treadwright with new tires on the same Jeep, even if the size stamped on the sidewalls is the same.
Would I recommend these tires to a friend? Absolutely. In fact, I came within a hair of ordering another set yesterday... but the deal DTD has going on Falkens was so good that I went that way instead. If the Falkens end up sucking, I'll send them back and get Treadwrights again.
