safari single axle.
My Question: What steel belted radial will fit on these original rims? Load range E (yes that's the load range I want)
Thanks in advance to any advice which addresses my question.
As per all wheel manufacturers, once a wheel has been in service for an extended period of time, you must not increase the tire load range to something higher.
To do so, will cause the wheels to split around the circumference.
If you wish to go to "E" rated tires, you will need to use new wheels.
Additionally, make sure the suspension system is ok, so that it within itself is not adding road shock, since you will be adding more road shock to the frame and shell with the "E" tires.
