New tires
« on: February 21, 2021, 10:54:09 AM »
Needing to up grade the rubber on me truck


Need a 126 load range minimum, which is a 10 ply. Need that for the toy hauler. since it's a SRW, need a high load range. The 285 is a 127, which is 3,858. The 275 is 3,748


Looking at the BF Goodrich 275/65r20 all terrian t/a k02 or same in a 285. i do like the 285' a wee bit better, as wider, but they are also $47 more. $308 vs $355


Anyone runnin these or have suggestions or violent reactions?

Go with a G rated trailer tire for the toy hauler and you will never look back.  That's all I run now on trailers - blown tires are a thing of the past, rotate them and I have seen 100K on a set on my gooseneck when I was hauling horses around the country.

Yup. The dump tires are all G as they get replaced.

When you say toy-hauler are you referring to a RV that has a place for ATVs or motorcycles? Since you mentioned all terrain tires I'm not sure what type vehicle you have.

265 75 16s my truck's an 01 model 7.3.  Ran at least 2 sets of them running a Kelly Branded AT tire now.  Next door neighbor used to have a tire shop. I think I'm running what he got the best deal on. No complaints with these.

Toy hauler is a 5th wheel camper with a place in the back for a sand rail or 4 wheeler.
Tires are for the 16 crew cab 2500hd chevy diesel

Not the brand you were asking about, but I put a set of Toyo Open Country CT on my 01 Chevy 2500hd last spring. I probably have 20-25K miles on them? They are wearing nice, I spend a lot of time with the dump trailer in tow, too. They get decent off road traction, clean out well, and they're pretty quiet. I had a set of Toyo commercial mud tires on my Dodge 3500. They're discontinued, I can't remember what they were called. They turned that dually into a beast off road! They wore like iron, too- but they really howled going down the road. 
Too many irons in the fire

Thanks. i'll call me tire place today on those. Toyo was my 2nd choice actually. The holding up with towing on those is good to know.
