Well said... I will follow you on that thought. My 18 footer calls for 13" C rates and I just bought 5 14" D rates. Praying they fit, i've done a lot of research on the Kumho 857's and had some good opinions from fellow members of this forum and well, so i went for it. Photo's and comments will be coming as soon as we stop getting the "out of the blue" blizzard conditions around here.
Oh...I had some C rates on my 86 popup and never blew a tire on it, but was worried about the weight limit. Found some foreign E rates (GreenBall i think they were) and hauled it on a 1200 round trip mission for a honeymoon type of trip through SD, Wyoming, Montana, and back and they were fantastic. During our stops, never had a single tire that was hot to the touch. I love that!!!
