    Nope, on my daily driver.

    My tow rig keeps blowing out tires, and NONE of those have been retreads.

    No the width is the 285 , the 75 means the sidewall is 75 percent of the width . So if you had a 285/70 it would be as wide , but shorter /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    They are junk on commercial vehicles (Semi) Sure they cost $100 less, but when they decide to go south, all that money you have saved, goes into body repairs, etc.
