I just saw this website in someones post. What is the deal with these tires why are they so cheap??? Will the tread be not as thick or something? Will the tread be uneven on the different tires? Anyone on here have tires from them??
Oh and what is the metric equivilent for 32x11.5

Retreads.....take old tires, add new tread. No cost for "making" the tire. No personal experience, but I've heard they are not bad.

all there 33s are out of stock wtf but the 33s they do have a dunlop mud rovers and wrangler muds. and i love my mud rovers but there 170 a tire for new ones and they run retreads on big rigs all the time so i think they would be safe to run on a truck anyone. Has anyone bought anything from them?

I don't think its legal to run retreads on passenger cars in some states. I would never ever run them on mine.

It's not a wise idea to run those on a street/highway vehicle. Semi's cannot run them on their front tires, they have dual tires on the rear which is safer when one of the rear tires decides to blow a cap.

As a trail tire these would be awesome.

Caps (recaps) aren't necessarily bad, but they do have their drawbacks. Extreme temperatures, improper air pressure, high sidewall loads and high speeds will lead to premature wear or failure. Personally I wouldn't cheap out on something as important as tires on something such as a car/pickup, but it's the buyer's choice and wallet.

I don't know much about them so i was wondering i didn't even think about all the tires you see in the highway there all recaps and that scares me so screw that i would just spend the extra money to be safe.
