new Horse shoes

Unread postby Terry on Mon Mar 24, 2008 10:43 am

Got some Discoverer HT + 265/60/18 rated to 2601 lbs. Ready to go now.
Really wish Ford had put 17s on it. But I knew it when I bought it. Did you know that you can't hardly find raised white letters on 18" tires. You can on the Goodrich Long Trails. but they came on the truck, and are worn out after only 25000 miles.
Tire guy has some 05 Ford 17" wheeels he will trade me even for. May do that if I ever go to a heavier TT.

I think you'll LOVE the Discovers on the truck. I put a set of 245-70-17E on my truck last summer and they're the smoothest, quietest LTs I've ever owned. Wear has been pretty good also as they've got two major trips on them 15,000 miles and 7,000 miles and they still have about 3/4 of their tread left. The OEM on my Ford were General Ameritrac load range D and they would be almost gone after a single trip (at least on the back axle).

I just got back from the tire shop today. Put on a set of Nitto Terra Grappler 295/70R17. I had to put a set of shoes on my company truck so he made me a good deal on the ones for my personal ride. I replaced a set of Cooper Disc. ATR in 265/70.
