First, Hello everyone. My first post....had to be about tires...right?
Anyway, I'm about to make an offer on a Silverback 29RE. I'm just coming off a series of 3 separate incidents with the chinabombs going off like a shotgun at hwy speeds. At different times, approx six weeks apart, both drivers side tires blew out. These tires were part of a set that are only 2 years old with less than 3000 miles. Thread depth was 7 to 9/32" They are on a Durango 285RL....225/75r15 e rated. (Original tires were 215/75r15 D rated) Anyway, the entire set has now been replaced with new china bombs. Brand is Greenball.
Anyway, I'm trying to decide what to do with the 29RE tires before I take delivery. I would love to put Michelins on, but cannot find a 16" tire that will handle the load.
