Treadwright.com Home Page

31" Tire page & they have bigger ones

moabjeeper.com's article on these tires

U can also pick the carcass of different MFG that they R gonna re-tread to.

Comments from other Jeepers:
Sub8Haven wrote-been running their 31x10.5x15 OTR mud tires for a few months now, and all I have to say is that they're freaking amazing. I've run BFG All-Terrains and Mud-Terrains, and honestly, I think these Treadwright re-treads are better all around than either of them. They're more aggressive than BFG MTs, they clean better, they bite better, they handle and ride better on the pavement, and they're quieter. Plus, I think for 33x12.5x15 it's going to cost $80 per tire.

People are always going to hate on re-tread tires, but these newer Treadwrights use a new manufacturing process that is way more advanced than what everyone else uses. I run these things at a solid 75-80mph on the blacktop in my CJ and they don't miss a beat. Believe me, if I didn't have faith in these tires, I wouldn't drive that fast in my CJ topless with no doors on.

cb wrote-I had a set of 33's on my '93 YJ. they were from the very first production run, and took a bit more weight than I was used to, to get them balanced. I talked with the factory rep at the time, and he acknowledged some tolerance issue with the first run, and offered to trade them out for new. I wasn't that worried, and they rode/drove fine for the four years I had them.
I had them on a set of 15x8 chrome mods. they were a good combo.
sounds like you'll save enough to get the 5th one 'basically' free.

=======================================================================

OK, I received the re-treads today & they R going back, he apologized up, down , back & forth (it was noted on the purchase memo & verbal). I ordered BFG carcases & they sent Michelin's. Talked to Joel & he is paying to ship them back & having others made & re-shipped @ no extra charge. I like the BFG, been running them since '77 or so. The Michelin's felt to soft, being a two ply side wall.

So I took pics anyway so U could see the tread etc. Will show the BFG's when they R in.

These R the 31x10.5x15 OTR



=================================================================

Here are the BFG's, they took care of me when they made a mistake & sent the Michellins. They sent out the BFG's right away.

Well I had to test them out in the mud/clay & slid around & had fun last night. Didn't have my camera but w/some more rain, Citrus is going to be wild.


Here are the two pices together. I had it up to 60mph & no problem. Easy to balance & they ride very well, just waiting to see what kind of mileage I get out of them. I have 5 yrs on the BFG 33's that R going on the CJ8.


I have the only (I think) set of MT on a AT carcus. I don't care for 65 bucks a tire.






Bob had to weld my old tire carrier bracket/tub cause it broke from the 33's


====================================================================

OK, the tires tested out good in the clay & cleaned easy. They ride real smooth on the HWY & the tread is softer than the regular BFG's but I think they grab better than the original MFG of the BFG & I should know cause I've been running BFG M/T-R since '77 or so. I can so far recomend these tires, time will tell.

It rained the day B-4 & the clay was slippery.
