If you really had any valid points you respond directly to me or bamatoy. But you don't and you are blowing smoke. If you can prove that they are in fact a safety concern more than any other tire out there I will gladly listen. The sad fact is that you can't and you result in trying to insult other members by calling them "cheap" or implying they are "poor." Until you are able to give a valid intelligent opinion, keep them to yourself or be prepared for responses that will argue your opinion.

Good, now we don't have to listen to it anymore. (Sarcasm btw)

i bought some duratracs and i absolutely love them
to the extent, i plan to buy them again, if they're are still available at that point

but, immediately after i bought them, before they were shipped to my house, someone at work told me his Treadwright Guard Dogs and how awesome they are
i respect his opinion quite a bit, and i read other actual user's reviews
i may very well have opted to buy them if i had heard of them before i dropped coin on the duratracs

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.

Seriously considering a set of these next time around, I drive a lot of miles, get about two years per set, @$200 per plus all the extra's, that is a grand....

A set of these would be about half the price...when I was a teenager, I always ran retreads (think like 50 years ago), I was burning up the rears every couple of months with teenage burnout abuse...

Same here. I put on a lot of miles. Some see that as an argument to just go ahead and buy non-retreads. But after reading a lot of the posts on here from BamaToy and all the other guys who have had real world experience with them (not to mention reading posts on other forums, reviews in magazines, etc.), I am seriously considering a set of these.

i am running the 285/75/16 treadwright guard dogs and love them so far. 10ish k miles on them and still lots and lots of tread left. next set will be another set of treadwrights. However the next set will be skinner if they have them. something like a 33x10.5 size would be nice

Warden AT's

I'm running the 265/75/16 Warden AT's on BFG AT casings, had them for about 7,000+ miles so far. Great tread wear so far, look new. A lot of highway use so far, but also a handful of offroad experiences in southern utah desert sand, mud, rocks & washboard roads. They are f'ing great IMO. Drive on snow covered roads on I-80 through Parleys Canyon to Park City for work all winter, one of the sketchiest interstate sections in the US and they handle amazing. Barely ever need 4wd except in the worst of conditions. Run them at 80mph when roads are dry regularly. Great handling. And for $500 shipped?? Brilliant.

I'll run Treadwrights for my next set as well, no questions period. Just my 2 cents, to each their own
