I actually thought about it but there was no room to pull off and it was 2 guys. Figured they had it well under control.

need a little more information before we can really help;
what is the current tire brand?
What size?
what are your rim PSI specs?
How much does the 5th weigh?

Do you prefer ST or LT as replacements?

Tires are LT235/85R16 standard oem tires. I run 80 psi cold with monators. 5er weigh fully loaded around 14,500. I am thinking of replacing these with Michelin Ltx or Xps truck tires.

Michelin XP Ribs, Goodyear G614s(both LT tires) or change to 17.5 wheels and tires for maximum weight capacity.
