Default gettin some new shoes

wouldnt really post it except its interesting to me. i have 265/75r16 bfg atko'* on my yukon and to replace them would be like 8 or 900 dollars locally. I got some retreads in the same pattern for 500 after shipping, plus 60 for local mounting and balancing. they also have "kedge grip" which is a mix of walnut shells that leave sipeing and glass powder stuff for grit on ice. i got them in 4 days with bfg a/t carcases, cant wait to get them mounted and see how they work. they are from treadwright.com

got em mounted up and cleaned up, they measure a little over 31 by 9.5 with 35psi in them. very few miles on them but im pretty impressed so far. i wouldnt put them on my DD but they ride smooth enough for what i need them to do.
