New tires/wheels == $$$
Easy towing == Wise
Safe Family == PRICELESS

Nice! like the new tires and they are superior to stock!

I shopped around, but ended up at a friend's local tire shop. They were expensive, but I wanted the best, so I wouldn't have to worry.

Now sit down....


They were right at 200 a tire. My wallet still is burning, but I am no longer worried each time I go out waiting on a blowout ...

That looks really good, and trustme, between myself and my father in-law we have have our fair share trailer damage due to "trailer tire" blowouts.

Question: I really like the 15" wheels that came on mine, are the LT tires available in 15" wheel size, seems like everything is p-metrics.

and,

are those "D" or "E" rated on the loading.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, after extensive research, I could not find a tire that would be any better than what I had in a 15" size. That is why I had to upgrade the wheels too. I like my OEM aluminum wheels, but no tire could come close to these in a 15".

They are E rated.

foxhead love the tires, I know it's a bit to ask but if you could drop a line after 2-3 years as to how the tires are still doing, and what mileage you've put on them it's be great to kown this too.

Not in my opinion... that's why I went to a 16" wheel. It really opened up the options.
