I have where the rubber hits the road question.
I would be very appreciative if you could advice me on what tires should I replace my current ones with.
I am preparing to take my maiden voyage with new to me 73 tradewind. Never have towed more than a tent trailer. I am concerned about getting things right and safe. The previous owner used this trailer on a regular basis. It has newer shocks and brakes and newer axels 7 years ago from Inland. The trailer tires are months old. So I believe I have that covered.
I got advice previously to get a brake controller and a transmission cooler. I had a n istop IQ installed and a Tru-Cool transmission cooler 4590 rated fir 28000 gvw installed, today. I also installed new Monroe reflex shocks on tow vehicle.
Now I want to replace tires and hope to get some advice. I have a 2004 ˝ ton Express van AWD. GVWR 7200 GAWR FRT 3600 GAWR RR 4000
The tires that came on it were P235 75R 16 Currently the tires on it are P245 75R 16 off brand Coopers
Any thoughts on what would make sense to upgrade to. The shops recommend LT 10ply but are short on the why. Please advice and help put me on the side of the angels on my first voyage. Many thanks Tony
