Softest tires I've seen.
I replaced them with 14 ply Samson GL285T.

Rims are stamped 110 psi.
Inflated to 95 psi.
In true FR fashion.... There were extra parts included!! Lol.

Tires haven't had the number of "ply" since early 60's with the introduction of higher strength body cord materials. "Load Range" is proper terminology.
If you were hanging from a clif which would rather have 10 cords each with breaking strength of 18# or one cord with breaking strength of 300#
Un-inflated tire sidewall stiffness is essentially meaningless measure of tire strength, ride or puncture resistance.
I write a blog on RV tire application and safety. RVTireSafety.com
Also give seminars on tires at RV events across the US. 40 years experience as tire design & quality engineer for major tire mfg. Freelander 23QB on Chevy chassis is my RV
