Do you have metric or numerical tires now?

David,
Last winter we had all of our tires replaced on our 345. We went with Goodyear G670 tires. We have since put about 5000 miles on them and love them. They seem to run cool. While towing a 7000# race trailer, the highest tire temperature was 127 deg. This was with about 89 deg air temperature.
Rob

Based on??? He might be right. Its all about weight and your choice of manufacturers. There aren't really that many choices.

I have BF Goodrich Commercial T/A's on my F250, in that size, load range E. Relatively inexpensive, and seem to be wearing very well.

Just saw that Sam's club now sells commercial truck and RV tires. They quoted me $230 a tire for my 19.5 tires. Anyone know anything about these?
