16" tires..

I need a decent set of take offs for my Disco I. Something to get me through the winter and cheap. Bigger than stock, 31-32? Im running 265/75's right (severely dry rotted, lots of tread..)now would like to stick with a similar size for the 2.5" lift. New England please.

I'll put in an A+ recommendation for Treadwright. I bought a set of 285/75R16 mud terrain retreads back in 2006 from them(when they were hi-tec retreading). They worked great and wore well for the 2 years that I used them. Put about 20k on them and they had plenty of tread left after that.

Next set I bought was 255/85R16 BFG KM2s before moving to the UK. Didn't really have any great impression about them to make me want to spend the 2.X times the cost of a retread so I went looking at them again when I wanted to get a set of tires for a truck I have.

Treadwright now has a new method of retreading where they apply new rubber from bead to bead. You can read more about that on their website.

I just mounted 265/70R17 in the E range Watchman pattern(equivalent copy of a Bridgestone Dueler AT Revo 2). They mounted very easy and balanced perfectly with 6 oz dynabeads in each wheel. No more road noise than an AT tire and very smooth on the road. For the sale price of $128 with their Kedge Grip version you can't argue with the value... Not even the nay sayers that go on about how they would never trust a retread because they know somebody who the tread separated on or they see big rig treads on the highway yadda yadda yadda.

They said the bead to bead retreads were on back order and would take 4 weeks to ship but mine were shipped about 4 days after I ordered them.
Do not read the next sentence.

You little rebel, I like you.
