Tires For Tow Vehicle

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I need to replace the tires on my tow vehicle, a 15 passenger 1 ton van. They are load range E tires, size LT245-75-16.

Sure could use some input from everyone.

I have Michelins on it, but with tire prices as they are I really don't want to pay for the name.

I would stick with a name! Michelin, Good year, Firestone, and maybe a very few others. What kind of van are they going on?

Sure they cost a little more, but I have never had a problem with a Michelin tire, ever. They take a minimal amount of weight to balance, don't thump or go out of round and they wear like iron. I will never buy another brand. In my opinion you aren't paying for a name they really are a quality product.

I take the advice of a friend manager of tire wharehouse who sold it all - Put shiny names on shiny trucks you want to look nice, but if you don't care about names there are very good off brands as well. I have had great luck with Hercules Terra Trak (not sure if they are still made, but they kicked but over my Goodyear Wranglers and BFG's) and really great luck with Kumho Ventures. I currently have Wild Country XTX by Multi-Mile and so far so good (LT265-75-16 load D). The price was very good. Another buddy used to put the load E Kumhos on his Powerstroke 1-ton and he used the truck to tow a fence pounding tractor and material, and he really liked them for traction and longevity. I know they have that brand/model at the discount stores.

Everybody has their favorites. Good luck with your choice.

    • That's his story and he is sticking to it.   
    • I hear ya. Although unlike CWD, I don't think there will be as much debate among different hunting groups about how bad the effects are and what, if anything, should be done about it.  Doesn't help the deer any, but at least it won't turn into debates/accusations/conspiracy theories that rival any political campaign. 
    • Great anything else?  Start the slaughter!  😠
    • does he need to?  Sounds like he put a whoopin on the boys in the one practice he showed up and played in...
    • This is not good news:   http://www.startribune.com/virus-new-to-state-s-deer-inflict-quick-and-suspicious-deaths-in-herd-near-twin-cities/497832721/   "Quick and suspicious" deaths of several deer this month in a captive herd south of the Twin Cities are being attributed to a virus never before seen in deer in Minnesota, state officials said Wednesday.   The Minnesota Board of Animal Health has confirmed the first cases of epizootic Hemorrhagic disease (EHD) in seven animals in a small herd of captive white-tailed deer in Goodhue County. There is no specific treatment or vaccine available in this country. Six of the deer died this month, the agency said, while a remaining buck "appears healthy at this time and is showing no clinical signs associated with this disease."   While this is the first detection of EHD among deer in the state, it is widespread across North America. There are no known health risks to humans, the Board of Animal Health said.   EHD has previously been detected in two Minnesota cattle in southern Minnesota — in Brown County in 2012, and Murray County in 2013.   "This virus is transmitted between deer by biting midges, or gnats, which are most active in the fall before they are killed by the first frost of the season," said Dr. Mackenzie Reberg, senior veterinarian with the Board of Animal Health. "These bugs can't travel far on their own, and we're concerned by this detection because the herd owner hasn't moved deer onto the property for several years."   The "quick and suspicious deaths of the animals," as the agency's announcement characterized them, alarmed the owner, who worked with a veterinarian to submit tissues from the carcasses to the Iowa State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory for investigation and confirmation.   Many deer species may be infected with EHD, but white-tailed deer are highly susceptible and experience high rates of mortality. Most die within 36 hours of clinical signs, which can include fever, anorexia, lethargy, stiffness, respiratory distress, oral ulcers, and severe swelling of the head and neck.   The Board has notified the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources of the newly confirmed cases.
    • Not so Young dumb and full of............   Anymore?  😜
    • I think Negan should be in a cell that has a couple walkers in a cell on each side. lol
    • So, is Butler playing in the season opener? Has he even practiced, other than that one infamous time?
    • 2 episodes in, and I don’t have much of anything to complain about. Not great episodes by any means, but not bad either.
    • Good luck to you all. Sounds like a great trip.
