I'm in your camp. When the tire comes apart, all evidence is gone.

My new set of Carlisle's are rated for 81 mph. I still tow at 62 to 65 mph but it is nice to know that there is margin on a...

I would qualify this by saying a 3/4 ton gasser has nearly equivalent payload to a 1 ton diesel. Many medium weight 5er's can be pulled by a 3/4 ton gasser.

I have to agree with this point of view. We have been pulling a fifth wheel with our F150. Plenty of power. About 200 pounds over GVWR. It's fine towing locally. But we pulled the 5er down to...

IMO air is redundant and can leave bits of water in your pump etc. No need. Pink stuff is most reliable and will do the job. It leaves no possibility of water.
