PM Junkers88, he's had one version of the Treadwright muds almost a year now.

I've been running 235-75-r15's, load range d BFG AT sidewalls, with the Treadwright AT pattern (regular compound, non-nutty) and they perform exceptionally in the snow. Tons of siping, they all balanced well & have held their balance.

+4 for treadwright

Update here.

The Treadwrights I bought back in September have done very well. I ran them on the truck for a few thousand miles and now they are on the 4runner. No crazy wear to speak of, still have very deep tread.

I'm curious how much you paid to get them shipped to Alaska, they wanted $289 to ship to Prince Rupert (just south of Alaska in Canada) and I'm wondering if I can get them shipped to hyder or ketchikan and go pick them up for way cheaper

long term update? I am in the tire market, within the next month, and am seriously considering them (where else do you get an offroad tire with 40-60k mile life for less than 100 a piece?).

So, did you end up getting them?

Also, anyone who has these, with the walnut / glass...how do they perform in the rain? I have no snow in Florida, but lots of rain. Thinking they would perform exceptionally well in that aspect.

I've heard nothing but glowing reviews about the Tread Wrights....sound pretty amazing. I'd never even heard of them until a month ago....don't know where I've been...

I'll bring this thread back from the dead.

The tires are working well, but the walnut chips are just a gimmick. They fall out of the rubber far too soon to give any sort of lasting traction. My tires are riddled with little puck marks where the walnut bits once were. Small bits of anything in rubber just won't stay for any length of time. I don't think it's Tread Wrights problem, just a matter of physics.

The tire width (pizza cutter) is what gives me the best performance.

Erich
