New Tires

Well, After reading so much on what tires to buy, I am still confused and not sure which are the best to go with so I am purchaseing 4 new GYM size 225/75R15 to put on our 1976 27ft. overlander. All I can do now is pray they will hold up. Checked and they are USA made during the 22nd week. We had a blowout in Arizona, probally should have been more vigilent, will be from now on. Will post later to keep others updated. What is the thougt out there mistake or not.

Thanks to everyone out there for keeping us all informed

Are these trailer rated tires - do they have an "ST" rating?

Yes, please tell us WTH GYM tires are.

We have the Marathons made in China as came from the factory in 2007. Got just over 7000 miles on them with no observable problems. I keep them @ 65psi and we travel at 60-65 mph.

Sorry for the lapse. The tires are ST and the GYM stands for Goodyear Marathon
