Interesting tires. I might look into those pretty soon. Definitely like the prices.

I have had two sets of Treadwrights and couldnt have been happier. When I go up to 35's I will be buying them again.

I never wore mine completely out, but I could have probably gotten 20K out of the set with a lot of off road abuse.

They are actually made out of a pretty soft rubber. Which is nice on the trail but in terms of wearing ability it won't help

Also good to know. Being out here close to the beach, and away from good trails I need tires that will last since I don't get to play a lot.

I'm happy with the tires so far. They have worked quite well offroad. Admittedly, the road manners are ... lacking. I mean they are quite loud with the road noise. But the soft rubber feels nice off road and they grip very nicely. I've been in pretty wet mud with no problems.

M&M fab is in Mocksville, just a little west of Winston. Mostly he does Buggy chasis or full turnkey buggies, but he was able to slip the bumper in, in between projects.
