Corvette Tires on a RV?

A New (2016) Cherokee 34' FK came to our Rally and we were looking at the Tires,the Tread looks just like the Super High Speed V shape that comes on a Corvette! The Tires have (Real Fancy Sidewalls) also and Say (Lions Head)! Maybe LionsHead is Stepping Up in the RV Tire World? They did make it from Factory to Tadpole Rally,better than some other Brands! Youroo!!

I've owned several Vettes and I assure you----none of them, or any Vette I've ever seen had Lions Head tires on it!

If I remember correctly, it was ZR rated so it should be safe to drive over 65 mph.

Great on dry, fantastic in rain, but you would have to be crazy to drive in snow.

And with the low profile; not much rubber between the rim and the road.

I born and raised around Corvettes, (Dad was a Chevy dealer), besides owning Vetts, and still have my gorgeous 1992, I have never heard of LionsHead, but just did some research and they had recalls last year
