    Looks just like a BFG Allterrain. I love those tires. I get em everytime I need tires.

    Also make sure to tighten those bolts down on your plow mount before you put a plow on that truck.

    Yea they are made the same, I researched it, that is a really cost effective option, I have to get a new set and 600 vs 1000 sounds good to me

    tried treadwright. had several of them come apart. 1 completely totaled the bed on my ford. Took em all off and threw them away put new steeltex on. What I saved on the retreads. was nothing compared to a new box and the down time from them coming apart going down the road.

    Upon closer inspection of the mount. It appears there are 4 tight bolts on the corners.

    In almost all cases, a retread tire will last longer than a new tire. One reason re-caps fail on big trucks (busses, semis, fire trucks, etc) is because the tires are not balanced and have tremendous weight and pressure on them. Heat and pressure will destroy anything. Retreads on a pick up truck are perfectly safe. You have to compare apples to apples, not apples to peaches. A "big" truck is not the same as a "pick up" truck. Tread wright would not sell tires if they are going to explode/blow out. The process is exactly the same as a new tire. They just reuse the casing. Around here the local tire shop uses casings up to 10yrs old.

    It will be interesting to see what happens to the prices on these tires. Will Treadwrights stay low, and become an even better value? Or will they increase prices, because they can as new tire prices continue to rise.
