I believe the tires I currently have on the TH are worn beyond 4/32; they are a set of Falken Landairs I took off the old TV. Can't check until Sunday, but seem to remember them being almost to the wear bars but are only 4 years old and show no cracking yet. I'm looking at a set of Treadwrights in either a 235/85 or 245/75. Either way will be about $500 shipped for 5 tires, which is half of what a new set would cost.
I've seen other threads on the retreads, mainly for TV's. Considering I'll only be travelling about 330 miles and parking it, would it be better to ride out the worn tires or just pony up and get the retreads? I can't see spending a bundle on tires when the trailer sits 363 days out of the year. I may keep the old ones for when I get a new set of galvanized to throw the new tires on for towing and remount the old tires/rims for parking.
Not a fan of recap tires in these sizes. Mainly due to the lack casings from tires originally designed for regroove or capping in these sizes. Anyone with experiece in using caps understands the inherent risk of failure when you don't have casing control (know history of casing).
IMO the caps are not cheap enough over the Hankook listed or some other options out there. Consider warranties, too.
I you were here or traveling through our neighborhood in southern Az you wouldn't want a cap. They do not like the heat. The damage plus the tire cost would be more that a good commercial tire. I run Goodyear G614's G rated @ 75 mph @ 110 psi, 14 ply regroovable commercials.

I take the lesser of all evils would be to just run the worn tires one last trip and replace them when I have the time. Again, only travel a total of 2 days a year (getting to the site and comming home).
