I don't get hung up on load range. It's just a function of the max load the tire is rated to handle. I'm more interested in getting a quality tire that isn't going fail due to poor design,...

I don't understand what his problem was. You secure the vehicle to the tow dolly by strapping down the tires and then you run the safety chains over the lower arms. There is nothing special about...

Every time I enter CA on I-8 or I-10 I see the signs that indicate vehicles towing a trailer are limited to 55 mph. Most people towing a trailer ignore the signs, but they are there.
