TV tire replacement frequency
We made a short trip pulling the 5er this weekend. Approximately 350 mile round trip. My TV is a 2011 F250 Superduty with the original Continental Contritrac tires...now 4 years old. Traveling temp was in the low 90's. About halfway home, one of the rear truck tires must have slipped a belt and began bouncing badly, obviously way out of balance. Since I was on a narrow and long bridge, I had to drive slowly for a couple of miles. Then I pulled over and changed the tire.
The tires have 23000 miles on them. So, I'm trying to decide whether I should replace the entire set? ($1000 +/-) Replace just both rear tires?, ($500 +/-) or replace just the one tire for a spare. )$250 +/-)
Most tire reps say to replace tires at the 6 year mark regardless of tread depth, but in my case, the rear tires are packing a pretty heavy load most of the time. This truck is mostly used for towing. I have an older Tundra I use for daily running around.
So, I thought I would seek the experience and wisdom often offered in this forum. What would you do?
Also, I'm thinking of going with the Michelin LTX MS2 tires
