Question High-tec retreading????

just a question about tires, i was talking with one of my buddies his 98 TJ has 31x1050 mud-terrains, however they are from a company Hightec retreading(you can find their ads in a bunch of wheelin mags). i was wondering if anyone has any experiance with these, his seem to be wearing good and they are cheep. i read the articles in i think petersons 4WD and they said they were a good deal but just thought i would trust everyone here before them (or my buddy who doesnt offroad much).

Thanks all!

Never heard of them but I gotta be honest here . Taking into consideration how difficult it can be to have any oversized offroad tire PROPERLY balanced , trying to save a few bucks while relying on a retread isn't something I would do .

Particularly at highway speeds , I just wouldn't feel comfortable or safe enough . I would never give them a 2nd look .

And on a lifted Wrangler yet , there's just too many possible inherent problems any way . No point to inviting another one

Just my honest opinion

The only thing I can compare that too, is 18 wheelers, drove one for 20 years, and wouldn't give a plugged nickel for a retread. They cause more damage than they are worth.
Just my opinion.

I have 31 x 10.5 Mud Terrains from High Tec Retreading. They are pretty sweet. They are wearing really well and barely make any noise on the highway. They handle very well on the road and they are pretty decent offroad. High Tec has different tread patterns. I used to have BFG A/Ts on my old Jeep and these retreads are a hell of a lot better offroad. I've had them for a year now (I drive 10+ hours back and forth to school) and they have plenty of wear left. I got five of them shipped to my door a year ago for $359. You can't beat that price.

Also, they are not going to come apart like on a tractor trailor. Big rigs' tires are under extreme pressure and that is why they fall apart. If my retreads were going to come apart they would have done so a long time ago. Believe me, with all of my driving between NY and VA I can assure you that these retreads are safe.

Regarding the size, I know a girl who had 33 x 12.5 retreads and her tires were balanced as well as any other tire. High Tec Retreading is really good at what they do. Jp magazine recently did a review on them and they had good things to say too.

Yeah, I'm in school too. They're a good college budget choice for tires.

let us know how they wear. I am very curious to see if they stay together without comming apart, and taking out your fendors with them, causing major body repair$.
