Anybody here have experience with Treadwright remolded tires? I have been curious about these for a while. I have a friend who put some on his pickup a while back and he digs 'em. His look like the venerable BF Goodrich AT Radials.

A big part of the reason that I drive an electric truck is to reduce oil consumption and these would seem to be in keeping with that mission. It takes six gallons of oil to make one of these versus eighteen for a new tire plus it keeps a tire out of the landfill. They are definitely economical and sustainable. Any good? Thoughts?

You lost me at "remolded". Not a chance, right, wrong or indifferent, I'd put those on a 7,000 lb Truck that already demands a ton from its tires. The Pirelli's were designed specifically for Rivian to be efficient and quiet. There are plenty of other NEW tire options that are cheaper as well, but they likely won't be as efficient as the Pirelli's which were designed for a specific purpose. Just my two cents.
