Tire swap

Swapped rubber on my sabre today.
I can't imagine how they figure these constancy are 10 ply...
Softest tires I've seen.
I replaced them with 14 ply Samson GL285T.
105 psi max.
Rims are stamped 110 psi.
Inflated to 95 psi.

In true FR fashion.... There were extra parts included!! Lol.

The nice assembly line fellas at Sabre left me a pair or wire cutters and a whole spool of 14g red electrical wire in the basement behind the false wall. I have not checked the hidden compartment inside the tires!

Is FR doing there own tire mounting? I would think they would get them already mounted but maybe not?

I can't imagine FR is. My guess is those treats are from Lionshead.

That would be my guess.
I just found it funny.. I was rolling the tire into the shop, and I hear something rolling around inside!

I still can't get over how soft those contstancy tires are.... No wonder they go kaboom...

Kenny, you're making me even more afraid of the Constancy's on my rig than I was before. Guess I need to revisit the Maxxis upgrade I was considering…

Are you selling them on Kijji to save recycling fees? Some landscape trailer could use them. I sold my old Pirellis from the F 150 for $350.00. One had a plug in it.

What's even scarier is that mine are LRD. Obviously I'm hauling less weight, but still..... I am rolling real close to 10K total trailer weight.
