Re: Hi-Tech Retreads/// Supply down demand up
I used Hi-Tecs on my Sammy. Good deal. When I went to put recaps on my GV, I got the same run around.
The Courser MT's are a better deal. I ended up going with the Coursers in a LT 245/75r16 (31's) and they cost me $78 a tire out the door. Less than $400 for 5 tires mounted, balanced and taxes included. Even on/off road warranty!
The Coursers run MUCH more quite on the road, and have a nice side wall with a sorta "digger lugs" thing going on. The traction is superb and Moab-tested (by me [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]!) I've got 10,000 miles on them now and they the wear is good (slow).
I highly recommend them. FOr me, they are cheaper than re-caps, and I don't have to mount them myself.
