They're retreaded if I remember correctly. I would highly advise not running them on a daily driver.

Tires aren't something you cheap out on. Do you really want to risk that retread coming off when your going down the highway? I can see it on a trail truck where you aren't going high speeds but on a DD where you'll be going down the highway at high speeds helllllllllllllllllll no.

For your seafety I wouldn't buy them. They are for trail use only. That tread WILL pop off on street use. Look at all the Semi-truck recaps you see on the hwy.

My dad has run them on his Ice Cream truck before and they never last. Even if the tread is fine and the retread stays on, the sidewalls have alot of miles on them are usually cracked or dry rotting.

alright alright.... thanks guys I will not buy them,
Im just in depression because the tires I bought are way too small, I bought them before I lifted my truck, now I have 265/75/16 definity dakota mts, which are very narrow (10.3") and only 31.5" tall. I want some 33s so bad my tires look tiny! the retreads seamed like the easy way out.

Too add with all of the other reasons why not to run them, they are illegal to run on any steering axle.

Buy a set of used tires off craigslist or something. Anything is better than retreads.
