Thanks for the responses EPENDYDAD and DENALI15. Solid info, much appreciated. I am not the one who looks for the cheapest "route out" when it comes to safety items like shoes for the rig; however, I think I am confronted with two options compared to what I have now.
I currently have the 'worst' option (Constancy LY188 China Bombs). My options I am considering are: Good (Sailun 16" tires to mount on my 16" wheels rated for 110 lbs), Better (GY G614's on 16" wheels), Best (GY 114's on 17.5 wheels).
All seem like a monumental upgrade from the China Bombs from the Shandong Longyue Rubber Co. Prices: Sailun 235/85R16 x 4 = $572; Goodyear 235/80R16 G614 x 4 = $1500; Aluminum wheels ($240 x 4) + Goodyear G114 215/75R17.5 ($425 x 4) = $3325.
Since I have the 16" wheels, I am going to opt for the Sailun option. I will keep you guys posted on results (i.e. pressures, speed, weight, longevity). If I have anymore issues, I will sell the 16's and upgrade to the 17.5's.
