    When I was working in a small VW shop down in Georgia many…many years ago, tires like that were very popular with the swamp buggy guys.ย  If the rubber is good, use them !

    They’re on the back, won’t be too bad if they blow apart ๐Ÿ™‚

    I still have one around here that says “Durango Recap” on the side, hard to believe they made retreads in this little mountain town.

    Ran retreads on my 65 mustang in high school, under $100 for a set of 4, mounted and balanced! only had 1 come apart and it was just a piece, it didn’t completely fail…

    Yeah those tires are cool. White walls even. I’d run them

     

    …maybe not full-bore 80mphย  down the highway though.

    New front tires!!!!!! The tires that were on the rig were getting dangerous with cracks along the treads and cracked valve stemsโ˜น๏ธ Drove it home from the tire shop and steering and handling were 100% better!! Didnโ€™t even know it was bad before! ๐Ÿ˜€ tire pressure was at 30 pounds so I dropped it to 14 today so Iโ€™ll see if anything changes but Iโ€™m pretty sure these are gonna be Great!!!!
