    Last summer, I came across an ad in a farm magazine for a retread company. I thought this might be of interest to guys on Plowsite.....

    These tires are impregnated with a traction material. I think I am going to send a set of BFG AT KO's I have in the tire rack in the shop and have him retread them. They are 285/75/16 and are 10 ply load range E. I would be more comfortable having my own casings back.

    Can't beat the price and have a warrenty. What do you guys think?

    I ordered a set of the Ultra-Grips today and will put them on some steel wheels for plowing only. He is shipping 10 ply load range E BFG casings. I will keep everyone posted.....

    Wow, like half the price of new BFG AT's payup

    Did you get your tires? What do you think of them? My buddy got a set for his truck and they had good year tread on bfg sidewalls.

    Yeah, I'd like to hear about your tires. I was looking at that co. a few weeks back but I ended up getting a different set for my jeep. I could use a new set for another truck

    I have used a set of treadwright tires for the past six seasons. I have 235-85-16 ultragrip Michelin tires with no problems. I'll be getting another set from them for next season.
