    I found a set of 4 treadwright guard dog's for sale on craigslist for $140. Told they have about 50 to 60% tread left on them. I want to know if these would be worth picking up or not. I know they are retreads but they are so cheap for 4 of them. Opinions please!:D

    i dont think theyre treadwrights unless it says in the title of the ad. treadwright uses the old goodyear mtr tread and it says good year mtr on the sidewalls. i think theyre true goodyears. worn though, id pass

    Treadwright uses lots of different carcasses, not just Goodyears.

    I know, I don't think they're treadwrights unless it said so in the CL ad

    Thanks for the input guys, After calling the guy on them I gonna pass. He wasnt being real specific about them when I was asking questions. Kinda through a red flag for me.:p
