    The High-Tec retreads just arrived at my door. The bodies of all 4 tires used to be Yokohama Geolander A/t's. The tread appears similar to the tread pattern of a BFG A/T, but not the same, there seems to be a bit more open space with these tires. They have that new tire smell, and the white letters are colored blue just like brand new tires. I am very impressed with the overall fit and finish of the tires, and the 2 year/24000 mile warranty. It covers any defect in workmanship or materials involved in the retreading process. In a few days I'll have them on rims and mounted on the k5, Il'l have pics and more comments about performance, ride, etc.

    Just got off the phone with Hi-Tec Retreading and my 33 x 12.50 15 M/T stilll haven't been made. They have a shortage of retreadable side walls. Oh well, I'm gonna wait 2 more weeks then, move on to another tire source.

    Blazin' in TEXAS!

    yes, the biggest size they currently offer is 33x12.5R15. I ordered 31" at's, at 45 bucks a tire. The 33's are $65 a piece for mud terrain tread pattern (actually a copy of the Dunlop Radial mud rover) the shipping cost from SD to PA was 60 bucks. I'll keep you posted.

    Ive been looking into the retreads myself, but was a little concernd about the shiping
    for a set of tires. I read on this thread that useable cores was a issue, how long did it
    take to get your tires.. The price is what keeps me looking. Hard to beat it...

    i got mine in 6 business days, i ordered them last monday, he said they would ship tuesday morning. The fact that certain sizes are out of stock have to do with the fact that the bodies they get are being sold to them by tire dealers around the country, so if nobody sells them a 33" tire body, the cant do much about it. best way to find out is by giving them a call, toll free, 1 877 439 0759, they were very helpful on the phone. Shipping was 60 bucks, the cheapness of the tires really made up for this.
