Was just looking at how "cheap" treadwright tires are. Are they safe? Reliable? Do they preform as good as name brand tires? If anyone has used these please chime in because im due up for two sets of tires trying to save $.

There are a few really long blueroom threads on them. From what I gather they can be really awesome for the money paid. People even air them down, ect, ect

There was one guy who's kept separating and cracking, but it seems Treadwright really tries to make things right with replacements, except for the PITA of having to swap out a tire.

With that said, I think there are still 'cheap' alternatives which are not retreads, like General ATs instead of BFGs or those Walmart Duratrac knockoffs (still Goodyears)

You can buy my Federal Couragia 285/70/17 M/T's if you're looking for a good cheap tire!
