How far did you drive that after it blew? The entire sidewall had been cut away from the tread.

I just picked up 5 Treadwrights..35/70/17 MT on a BFG At carcus...they look really good...will get them ounted and on the Jeep in a couple of weeks then will give my opinion of them.

The concern I have or should I say that Miss Sue has is the quality of the ride...she really enjoys the stock ride and with the Teraflex 2.5 budget boost w/shocks and the 35 in tires....well..she is concerned.....time will tell

The government has studied it. Universities have studied it. The results are always the same... retread tires are NOT more likely to fail than "new" tires. And the pieces of rubber you see all over the interstate are not there because of retreads...they are there because of improper maintenance of the tires. Google is your friend.

If you guys don't want to save hundreds of dollars, have high quality tires, help the environment, and support a U.S. company by using Treadwright tires...fine, that's your choice. But don't try and ruin it for the others by posting ridiculous pictures. For every picture you post of a failed Treadwright tire, I could easily post 10 of failed "new" tires.

To the gentlemen with the blown out sidewall. Last I checked the sidewalls are not modified for the retread. So, the fact you blew the side wall out and the tread is still clinging on to life tells me a few things. You probably didn't properly maintain your tire pressure, and man that tread held in a complete failure.

I have had brand new tires fail exactly the same way as both of those tires. I tore out a lug on a set of BFG and Cooper, and blew out a side wall on a Goodyear. You know what, it happens. Pot holes, wear from airing down, something in the road, lots of stuff. You don't see me blaming it on the manufactures. I rarely see bad reviews about Tredwrights, there is probably a reason. It is a quality product, made in America, in a recycled fashion helping save the environment and your wallet. Everything everyones complains about.

You can buy bad retreads, you probably wo

Anyone want to comment on road noise of these tires? My pony is gonna need new shoes in the spring, and I like the look and price of the Treadwrights.

After three years running Mickye Thopsons, I wouldn't mind something with a little less hum.

Wouldn't do treadwright again.

I was happy with my 31" Wardens, until about 6" of tread came of the driver-side rear. All the sudden there is a pretty load banging from over my shoulder...it was that 6" flap of tire banging around in the wheel well. The flap never totally separated, but I can see there is a gummy substance where the retread meets the carcass. I'm just glad the whole tire didn't come apart.

I was very happy with tires up until this point, but I'll go with something else from now on. I didn't pursue a warranty claim, but I did speak with Treadwright about the issue. Again, I was happy with customer service until something went wrong, and then I was pretty displeased with my experience after that.

26,000 miles with a lot of road and off road use and still going strong. I will buy them again and again.

I'm still thinking if I should give them a try. I heard some good and bad about them but I guess that's the thing with retreads, you get a good one or a bad.

I looked into them a while back.....good product and read a TON positive and a couple negative....
Like posted above I've seen new tires herniate and fail so stuff happens.....I'd trust a tread wright....if I hadn't got a good deal on my tires over the years I'd run them....
Anything can fail that's what warranty is for nothing is 100% perfect...I'd say that tread wright is up there though...

They seem fine and not a lot of failures reported.

But, for me, the increased CHANCE of a blowout is not worth the few hundred dollars saved. Not for my life, nor my wife and kids.
