They are a great looking tough tire with a very good reputation. I almost got them for my 28 footer but my rims were a little to big(wide) for them. I did a lot of research on them and couldn't find anyone who did not like them. Only negative is they are not always readily available while you are on the road.

Could you please provide details (size, load range, tire pressure, etc.) when you get these mounted? --Thanks.

I just got these installed on Maxwell today. I like the looks as it seems more "vintage-ish" with a truck tire that's a bit taller and bit more narrow than the GYMs.

I changed since I don't trust GYMs on anything, let alone on hot Texas summer highways.

Now have a some piece of mind with a Japanese made commercial LT tire and no longer have that pesky 65 Mph limitation...

I had these on my 8k Silver Streak and am happy to recommend them. I have posted on them elsewhere at some length (and on Tire Rack). There are several others here on AIR with them. Throw some CENTRAMATICs on with them.
