If your wheels are 110 psi rated buy the sailun s637 tires they are great. Much heavier than the lt's

Tow master is Chinese. Aluminum rims are rated higher than steel rims, I believe.

If I get another set of tires, it WILL be LT rated tires........99% sure it'll be the G614's in that size. I'm not spending money on anything less than those, to change tires.
