    Did you get the kedge grip? If you did that may be why.

    Would never consider retreads until reading these posts/reviews. Their prices are really affordable, especially for 16's which have gone thru the roof in price for no known reason....

    Time for my winter review. Have had the 31x10.5" Guard Dogs w/ Kedge Grip on the X for about 10 months now. Grip in snow/ice is phenomenal. The only thing to phase it so far has been a perfectly flat layer of ice. Even then I probably had about 2 times as much traction as everyone else on the road. Great winter tire!

    After a few years of knowing about treadwrights and never finding a single person with a complaint about them I noticed a post on a Super Duty forum I'm on where one with 30k miles on it blew out at 75mph. I'll post up if i find out if it was a sidewall blow or tread separation...

    I am not defending treadwright, but I have a lot of experience in seeing trailer tires seperate as well as a few older tires. I would bet money that tire was underinflated. I also bet Treadwright will step up and replace it, their customer service seems top shelf.

    Me too, 3,000 miles of mostly road driving with a couple of offroading trips in there. No complaints.

    I bet you are right too. The cracking leads me to believe it was under-inflated for enough time to heat it up many times.

    And that's no lightweight vehicle. How many heavy loads did he have on those tires (which we are assuming were underinflated)? I'd like to know if he says what his PSI was and if he actually checked it regularly. I doubt he'd admit any fault in the failure.

    Either way, I'd like to see the results of this. I've been thinking my next set of tires would be Treadwrights.

    Well i got my 31 1050 15 guard dogs on tuesday. Got 18in of snow tuesday night and wednesday. These tires rock! I was in 2wd all night. Those tires just rip through the snow. I even pushed out a 4wheeler. Plus having a mtr tread with bfg sidewalls really confuses people
