I got treadwright 245/75R16's Yup retreads. I REALLY didn't want to like those tires but after hours of research I only found a few people that had an issue and a lot of that was at the start of the company or because of people having unrealistic expectations for offroad tires in general.

I found a lot of people that couldnt be happier with the customer service, and have had no issues with the tires.

They look great. Can't wait to get them on.

Good link. I saw that when I was researching, older article they have now changed the names of their tires so the Ultra Grip 2 is called Kedge grip and is an option on all the tires (they infuse the rubber with bits of glass and walnut shells read more on the website). The tread pattern they have in the article is called the Guard Dog M/T.

I got the Pumas (https://www.treadwright.com/p-32-245...uma-a-t-e.aspx) with the Kedge grip option. More of an aggressive all terrain not a mud tire. Really excited to see how they do in the icy conditions we have had lately and offroad.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

The pic kind of makes the lugs look pretty short but they are pretty deep for an AT tire. I will be starting an official review thread as soon as my lift parts get here.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Wheels get Plastidipped tomorrow finally. Gotta replace a backlight on the dash and the hood lamp. Also found some sort of liquid on the inside of my passenger tire. It looks like oil but it's too sticky. Gotta clean the undercarriage and see if I can track it down.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Added a little touch from Rebadge Design, one of the vendors in our Vendor section. Nate did an awesome job. I got this one and one that is slightly larger for the rear. I haven't installed that one though...too effing cold.

I like your little disclaimer "pre" bro Your drinking again aren't ya? Seriously though it looks great! And if you are hell bent on sticking things all over that beautiful clean piece of art you created it might as well be from Nate Now that's it. Stop it. Cease and desist. Stand down. Oh and I'm taking the console out and taking the rear cupholders apart for a super secret project and if I can't get it back together I'm blaming it on you Want to get the front ones lit up too before I get into lift mode again or it will never get done.
