Retracting my support for ST tires
Perry, you were right about ST vs LT tires. Notwithstanding what the automotive engineers recommended, I've gone over to LT tires. I had a tire failure that cost me some bodywork to patch at JC (fortunately only the wheel-well. Since new axles were due, I upgraded the running gear - new axles (increased to 4500 lbs each), new 16" wheels and Michelein LTX225/75R16(E) tires. I also installed Centramatics & the Dill TPMS - the Tireminders failed to sound the alarm when the ST tire failed.
JC supplied the wheels and tires at a good price; seems they have been putting the 16" LTX tires on the Eddie Bauers.
