The local tire dealer recommended Duro 8 ply ST225/75R15 (Load rating is 2540 lbs). Any opinions?
I am also replacing the old wheels as well with aluminum.
For what it's worth:
we're having some work done on our house, and the contractor had been parking a trailer for demolition material in front of our house for a few days. The trailer has "Duro" tires on it!
It looks as though the trailer had been overloaded brutally, and the tires were half flat. Probably been like that for 5 years or so. The worker gave me a blunt look when I asked him about the tires and the obvious abuse to the trailer.
I'd say that they are tough tires.
