If you want a rough ride you can now have it! LOL Goodyear must of been scanning Dodge forums, they're the first to market with a Load Range E tire in our STOCK FACTORY size of 275/60 R20 = https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires...omCompare1=yes

They're an AT which means they're probably gearing it at a certain group. But maybe some of the other players will listen and offer better load range in the next couple of years.

Thanks for sharing.

The link is for a LRD BFG All Terrain T/A KO2. Not a bad tire at all. $261 from Tire Rack.

I checked and my local Costco is selling this tire now. It's an AT so might not be suitable, but it's about 11lbs heavier than the M/S2 and of course 10 ply. The M/S2 is actually 7lbs heavier per tire than the stock Goodyears BTW.

Yes, the stock GYs are THIN!
I picked up a nail and got a flat a few weeks ago. I was surprised at how thin the sidewalls were. You get what you pay for, I guess.

I run mine at 65 psi. The dealer I bought my ford from did the exact same thing. He also put in a second battery. I figure he knew something....

The stealership knows something?

I hope you don't run your Goodyears at 65psi since they are max 44psi.

Bold, your biases are inappropriate....stealership. But I recognize that you know more than anyone else.

Wow, Sensitive much?

You just entered the thread and told everyone you run your tires at 65 psi without mentioning which tire you where referring too.

[QUOTE]I've run the Michelin LTs at or near the max of 80 psi indicated on their sidewall on trucks and trailers.

Should I completely disregard the 39 psi door jamb guideline and go somewhere nearer 80 psi on the Michelins?/QUOTE]

Maybe if you read the original post you would understand it. Just saying...

Hey guys, don't get into it too much with each other, you both have good points but don't get kicked off by a Moderator.

Remember your max Psi for a certain tire is posted on the sidewall and is determined by build and ply rating: 'C', 'D' or 'E'. The Door jamb guide is, just that, a guide, and for the OEM tires the Auto comes with. Like I posted before, the auto manufacturer will state the recommended inflation is for all sort of things, ride, tire wear, etc. But, for the big tires--the "E" rated tires--on the bigger trucks, you will find the door jamb guide numbers many times strange, to say the least. Numbers like 60psi in the front and 75 psi in the rear. Do the numbers for the load/inflation PSI for that tire and you will find PSIs like those above for the 2500 Chevy 3/4 ton bring the tires to the exact load carrying ability as the axles. In this Chevy case, door jam pressures to keep tires and axles matched for liability reasons.
