Default Let's Have A Discussion.

Well, I need some help, I have 31' Bf Goodwrench Tires on. And one of them had a tear in the sidewall. I need new tires but I want some decent looking, Relatively Cheap All Terrain Tires. I'm open to any suggestions you guys may have. Just give me some input. Thanks-Bear

yeah, especially if its a dd, the savings you might get innt worth the damage/death you may get going down the highway and that "retread" comes off like you see with tractor trailers!

i wouldnt be so quick to bash retreads. those tractor trailers drive 100,000 miles a year and maybe have only a few blowouts. thats a pretty good record. if they werent reliable why would a company rely on them to support the valuable cargo they carry? i would read some of the experiences of people who have bought the tires on other forums and see what the pros and cons are.

if your not convinced on buying retreads, at least buy the spare as a retread, itll save your more than 50 dollars which would cover the cost to mount all the tires, and you can test it and see how it does compared to regular tires

You have to check the laws in your state. i know in pa that you cant run retreads on the steering tire on tractor trailers and cant run them at all on a passenger vehicle.

I don't see why I wouldn't be able to. How do they get them to you? Like what do they do? How the heck are you supposed to order a tire online? Haha

UPS is a great thing. i ordered my tires from tirerrack.com and i got them 3 days later through UPS, no boxes or anything since the tire cant get too badly damaged from just sitting there.
