My first set in spring 2010.

On my 2010 Sport.

Later in 2010, the 315's came out.



Still going strong over a year later.

RE the question about them chunking or coming apart, you have to look at the youtube video of how they are made. And / or research different types of retreads.

Cemi tires that we see the carcasses on the freeway are a single piece that is bonded to the outside of the tire. It comes in a strip that is "glued" on. These are shaved and then a continuous thin strip is applied (think of winding a winch line) over the top and then cured for like an hour under pressure and heat. Much like a new tire. I am not an expert, this is only what I have learned from research. Point is, I dont think I will see any chunking or seperation.

Hmmm,

Wonder what they would set me back in shipping? Right now the Treadwrights are right at half the purchase cost of my current tires.

You're looking at about $25 to $30 per tire.

Back in the early 80's we were racing a touring series that allowed two tire to be picked from - one was a hoosier slick with no choice in compounds - the other was a Hurst Racing Retread - choice of y3 or y4 compounds. Hursts were done pretty much the same way as the treadwrights (again NOT like the wraps we see on semi-truck retreads). We saw the hursts outlast and outperform the hoosiers - when the car was setup correctly. If the car was off any - the retreads went away (lost traction) real fast under the high temps created by slippage. But we never had any issues of separation - except when that could be shown as a result of the car being WAYYYY off in the setup and severely cooking/blistering a tire (would have blown a Hoosier too - ummm does that sounds as funny as it looks?). For a budget minded person who is going to wear out and abuse tires - these may be a good choice. Id rather run a 200.00 tire through the cactus than a 500.00 tire!

Re the shipping, I found the actual invoice so I am going to post it. Shipping wasnt as bad as i thought it would be with something so heavy and bulky. $931.90 for 5 tires shipped to me in AZ. Assuming shipping will vary by location. Sold my other tires for $550. Realized I am $381.90 out of pocket for 5 tires. Add mounting and balancing and its $500. Beat that.

Took a trip this weekend that put me at 75 on the freeway towing 2000 lbs for an hour each way. Tires are stable and no issues. I am having a difficult time finding anything bad to say about them. I feel like my review is pretty damn boring. Like saying "yes, a hershey bar is chocolaty". Just havent been able to get off road very much. Would like to hit some rocks but I dont see it in the next few weeks so will post when I do. I am certain there are much better tires out there for rock crawlers, but for your average jeeper in the mud and sand so far, these have been fantastic. More to come as I get more time.

I'm still curious to see how they hold up at low pressure, like 8-12 psi range. I know tread wright says not to run less then 15 psi.

I'm curious b/c I may get these tires in a 37x12.50x16.5 on a double bead lock. so I could run them as low as 4 psi (the tires have thick sidewalls and 4 psi seems do great on a friends rig that has the military tires that treadwright uses to make that size)

Yes,,,, probably 2 or 3 mpg. BUT to be fair to the tires, they are 35's and I imagine you would notice some loss with any 35's. A winch, bumper, recovery gear, hi-lift, chain etc is probably not helping one bit either.
