I have another 53' M38-A1 I am putting back in the mountains this summer and I will get a set for it. These jeeps are light weekend use and slow (L-Head and T-90 transmission).
I suspect they would also be good for my Taco which sees very little time on Interstates or highspeed situations and is almost exclusively used for putting around the mountains behicnd the cabin on wet/cold days or making beer/gas runs to town.
More reviews on the quality please, but my primary concern would be high speed blowouts, but that is a concern with all tires. I would really like to see Treadwright put out a study comparison regarding blowouts, average speeds and compare against other manufacturers. ould certainly alay concerns if the numbers match the mouth.
Kin-taco. You're a dipshit. All tires have their use. If you want something else then fine. Like others, if these meet my needs I would rather keep the money in my pocket.
To start I know this is not safe...
I had warrden treadwright ats and had them off road aired down, which ppl advised against.
I also had them on the highway doing around 95mph towards the end of there life. I had no issues what so ever with highway speeds which is where most of the miles on the tire came from.
I posted earlier about them needing a lot of weight to balance two out of 4.
Treadwright did offer to replace those two tires however they were mounted and I did not have a spare set of wheels and tires at that time. So I opted to roll he dice. Only concern would be with that much weight to balance (16oz) if weights came off May be an issue at highway speeds.
