Got some of those Treadwright retread offroad tires and a set of Cragar wheels for the Zuk. All in all, not a bad investment. Got the rims for $28 each on sale at Quadratec, and the Tires ran about $115 each for 31x10.5xr15 in the heavy mud terrain pattern. Had to cut the front fenders back a couple of inches due to rubbing, but otherwise, the 4" lift was enough. Here's a few pics...

I'll report back on how the retreads hold up. They warranty them for 20,000 miles/2 years, so there's always that.

I thought rethreads were illegal in CA for passenger vehicles?

My last set of tires were treadwrights. They were pretty nice, they mimiked the BFG AT tire. I had them on my '02 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD. I replaced them about 35,000 miles or so. This was a little less than the set of real BFG AT's that I had before. I probably could of stretched it out another 8000-10,000 miles, but I don't like to let the tread get that low. I replaced them with a set of Cooper ST Maxx's. They cost me around $200.00 bucks more from America's Tire. (The best place to go for tires BTW). If the Treadwrights didn't have to be shipped then taken to a tire dealer to be mounted then I might have bought another set, but for the little extra that a paid for a brand new set, the savings wasn't quite enough to justify the retreads.
