Can't run em on the front. I know you can run em on the rear in a duelie setup, not sure about singles, but apparently not on your steering axle.

The guy I got my dually one ton from always ran retreads, good casings were important he said. I used to run retreads when I was younger as they were cheap but never had a problem with them.

thats a heck of a deal, but the shipping calculation is more than the tires almost!

Does anyone know for sure what the law is on us running retreads?
I've been searching and I can't find a thing, but one of those sites said they were all legal.

im assuming they'd be legal due to the fact that most of the stores from the one site are located in bc, i dont see why they woudlknt be though

I think its all good if they're DOT approved, im sure if there legal in the states there legal here because people are always gettin tires from the US

They can be good, We ran em on our work trucks all winter,, 1 problem is there are limited tread widths. Also if the Cap is not put on the casing properly (perfectly straight) they create a weird wander. i have been through the whole recap process with Bandag. We did run em as Steers with no problems for about 10,000 kms.. with next to no wear at all. the heavier the truck the better i would say

BDRW. is a kick ass tread pattern... get yer shit capped up with that [36]

keep the correct air pressure in them and they are usualy fine. wrong tire pressure on the highway..... build up of heat...boom.......... time for a new tire. 80% of the blowouts you see from semi's on the highway is from to much wieght and wrong air pressure.
