    One of my tow rig's tires decided to spit a bunch of tread off on the highway last night.

    I need some decent, load range D or better 235/85R16s or 265/75R16s or even 245/75R16s.

    Long shot, I know, but I really don't want to spend too much money on this tow rig if I don't have to.

    tim, why would you go on and on about tow safety then buy cheap "maypop" tow rig tires????

    i do accident reconstruction and see to many fatalities as a result of trailer malfunctions. good tires arent that high.


    "Maypop" = they may or may not pop

    Not one of his trailer tire's "Tow Rig", and what makes it unsafe if he is looking for a good deal on one tire. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif He stated he wanted at least a decent D rated tire stop trying to start [darn] he was simply asking if anybody has a tire /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    you need just one tire? the 265/75r16s are cheap and easy to find. i have 2 decent tread goodyear at/s in that size that i want gone. they are load range E IIRC. i may be comming down close to you in a few weeks if you want them. i can get 2 more of the same tire for like $40, the local tire shop has about 12 of them.

    i had 4 good ones, but 1 got a bigass hole in the sidewall and the another is now my spare.

    let tim take up for himself, i didnt stab at him if i did, i would have said directly like "blah blah blah you should know where to get them"

    cheap tires are just that. cheap. tires dry rot from AGE, and will fail from no use too.

    Sorry I just get tired of people always tryin to start [darn] with Tim. I think he is a good guy, and he has admitted his wrongs in the past and trying to be different. there just seems to be a jump on the bandwagon "I don't like Tim" thing sometimes around here.

    Decent means just that, DECENT. Don't need to be brand new but they need to be in good shape, at least 1/2 tread, and rated for the load I'm going to put to them. The one that threw all of its tread off looked like a brand new tire before the weekend started. If I wanted a dry rotted POS I've got tons of those in the backyard, some with GREAT tread.

    Tyler,

    I know, I had posted this before we talked.
