On non commercial vehicles, you can run re-treads all the way around if you wanted, even if they are 22.5"
I haven't heard of people using retreads on a light (1 ton or less) truck. The other thing to think about is that if you loose a tire on a truck with 8 drive wheels, no big thing. Losing one on a truck with either 2 or 4 tires on the back is a little worse. If you have a SRW truck it is especially bad. On a DRW truck you have to think about the costly damage that will occur if you lose a tread. I lost the tread on my Americrap General on my daully, and cost about $3500 in repairs. It was not a retread, but it wasn't worn out either.
