I run re-treads on the rear of my FedEx delivery truck. I have never had a problem with them. I didn't know they made re-treads for light duty trucks. It will be interesting how they wear for you.

Well, I put my money where my mouth is. Was going to go with Yokos, but got a fantastic deal on some Treadwright 265/70R17s in the Brigstone Revo A/T tread design. With the sale of my 1900 mile stock Goodyear rubber, I'm in positive cashflow territory

Took an impromptu road trip to Portland and up the Washington coast this weekend (600 miles) - the Treadwrights drove smoothly, and felt MUCH more secure when it started pouring in Portland. The stockers drove well, but they felt somewhat greasy. Maybe it's the P-metric vice LT, but I like the change.

Will update as the weather worsens.....

When I was in school I took a construction equipment class, and we spent a lot of time talking about tires. We found a research some company did on a highway where they gathered all the tires laying on the side of the road for so many miles and analyzed them to figure out if they came off of "new" or "retread" tires. Results amazed me as most of them(like 80% if I remember correctly) were from the "new" tires.

Besides that ^ I always run retreads on my motorcycles when I buy new tires. My family picks on me and says I'm endangering my life, but guess who is the only one of us that hasn't had tire issues? lol. Retreads have come a long way, and I have found out that they actually have to meet higher standards than "new" tires as far as durability. If you get retreads, they will be less likely to blowout/separate.

The only negative thing I've noticed with the retreads on my motorcycles is the balancing seems to be worse on average...but wheel weights fix that...
