retreads are the exact same as a new tire except there used (if that makes sence)

I say go for it. Just try to get some sort of warranty on them if possible.

from a truck driver stand point

Keep a close eye on tire pressure if the get low like any tire will over heat but unlike a new tire can let go a little easier.

If the place that did them nows what they are doing should last until you have no more tread.

If you are going to use them on a second pair of rims just for mudding then go for it.

Typically retreads are used only on the rears. I like virgin rubber up front.

Something weird

Here is something else a little weird. First, this truck had about 12,000 miles on it when I bought it and this is the first time I have had to buy tires for it. I was looking at the info sheet and it says it should have 265/65/R16, o.k.? No big deal. It has the factory rims on it BUT the tires it has on are 265/65/R17. So, am I to assume the original owner put bigger rims on it? They are the factory style. I am puzzled.
