I believe they were concerned about the speed rating of your trailer tires.

I have hit 70 but stay around 65, which staying to the right doesn't impede a lot; but is still faster than I feel safe since I know stopping distance is atrocious. I turn the radio loud and try not to think about the worst that could happen. Im ready to meet my maker but in no hurry about it. Boosted let us know what you figure out.

Min speed is 40 so 55 is not a pronlem. Ya better double check your rating if your an FR owner. Guess you where one to run 70 when speed limit was 55. I'll make sure to stay out of your way. I like to arrive alive. Later RJD

I just got in from a 2,500 mile trip and drove 70 when it was posted 70. The DuraMax with exhaust brake/ Allison in tow mode handled the braking assist with the standard brakes. Getting the proper hitches set up and tires properly inflated is comfy, safe ride.

I have a F350 srw, I replaced the tires recently, with same size and load rating. I had Continental tires and went with Michelin tires and now have a handling issue. I know that I run the correct and same air pressure. But now have a sway issue. Something to think about.

How did we get from a handling issue with a new truck to how fast we drive and how safe it is and TT tire speed ratings?

jimmyt11664, My Continental tires are close to end of life, and I was going to go with Michelin tires, now you have me wondering. Which Michelins did you purchase? Defender or A/T2?

Are we a "little" off topic?????

From a poster asking about his control problems to people sniping each other on how people drive and how fast they can go.

This is a problem with some topics, imo, that they descend into the 9th level of screaming and scatter into all directions and do not return to the original question or topic.

My two points are these: There shall be no crying if you drive 70 and all "comfy" with your tv and tt tires correctly inflated and you hit a "road hazard" or a "gator" . Do not come here and complain about so called "china bombs".

Second point: people who tow rv's are in two groups- those that "have" had tires go boom and those that "will" have tires go boom.

Now flame away or keep quiet.
