chevymad They look good. Noticed someone else on the Oregon forum with those too. Retreads have come a long way. Theres a few loggers here running the retreads on their crummies. Not sure what brand but they seem to be doing allright. The tread being a bit thicker seems to stop alot of flats from the pitrun.

99er I got Treadwright Guard Dogs. These tires are retreads with Nitto cases. They do have a lot of tread, measure about 33.2" tall. I have not ran retreads before so this will be a test case. They did balance very well and felt good at 60 mph. I also did replace the front rotors and got a good quality pads. The braking seems a bit better but that's probably due to the brake work.

I'll be checking the gas mileage. I did check my speedometer and it is off by 10%.

chevymad Did you get Toyo's? Mine are even heavier. I put 305/70/16s on my stock moab's. Toyo's site says this tire is a little over 70lbs.. and I've seen the 16 moab's listed as close to 30...

With my 03 rubi the brakes still seem to be fine, but I definately noticed a power loss. How much is simply due to the taller tire I don't know. Mileage loss was 3-5 mpg vs the 31" MTR's that were on it.

Thomas302 That's about what my 285's weigh on aluminum wheels. It would be a good time to start upgrading brakes and steering components to stand up to the bigger tires. I'm still on stock brakes and they are in need of an upgrade for sure.

TJ Tire/Wheel Weight

So I just put on 285/75/16 tires and alloy rims. This combination weights 87 lbs per wheel. The stock canyon alloy rim and 30 inch tire I replaced weights 52 lbs per wheel. 87 lbs per wheel seems really heavy. Is this an unusual amount of weight for a 33" tire setup?

With this additional weight are there other items that need to be beefed up? My rig already has a 2.5" suspension lift and 1" body lift.
