    My K5 is only going to be driven on the street to get to the wheeling spot. Eventually I am going to get a trailer and green sticker it. So, should I get radials or not?

    I wouldn't. It sounds like the bias ply will do fine for you, and they're cheaper too. :D

    you dont need radials for that little amount of street driving. radials are for the tow rig that pull a trailer out into the dirt or sandy area ocasionaly, or does only about 25% or less offroading.

    That's what I was thinking, but I was just concerned because it's gonna be sitting a lot. I like the cheaper too, probably would cost me the same for 5 bias ply vs. 4 radials.

    you could put jack stands under it when you know its going to sit for any length of time. that will elevieate the flat spots on the tires. just make sure you have wheel locks on your rims, dont want to help theives out by having it on jacks and no locks on your rims. hell even put a chain or cable through a rim hole if you can and lock the rims to the axle for added security. i dont trust anybody these days.
