I've got a couple of "treadwright" tires on my 99 PSD right now, been on for 2 yrs. on the front. Prolly got 10-12K miles on them. They are not what you would call "recap" or "retreads", they actually mold "fresh" rubber to the casing. The casing's are Michelin's, size is 235/85/16. I personally will get them again when needed, but everyone has there own opinion.
