Im looking specifically for 14's also, I was set on the kumos but only concern is the extra air pressure may put too much stress on the rim? is this true?

Hi from AZ. . . The Discount Tire website shows a Carlisle radial in 14".(205 or 215 I think) . . I have a set on my FC28 in 15", and they performed flawlessly to Alaska & back. The blowout we had was a Michelin on the TV. . . just sayin. . . regards, Craig

I went with the kumo 857

its been over a year and about 4000 miles but I'm happy with them, my local tire guy that I've had for 20 years said the extra air pressure would be fine, I ordered them and a week later he had em, there at the high end of price for the 14s but like other posters said, its cheap insurance. I'm happy with them so far, they can run at 60 psi I run em at 55+. Be advised trailer runs a little stiffer. so I'm getting a little better mileage but also bounces a little bit more. I haven't had to aid air since i put em on which is not like the good years that i had to add air every time i went out. Im sold on the kumos thus far. still cheaper than switching to 15" rims with lower profile tires.
