I hear ya. That’s one of the reasons I don’t drive a dually anymoreThe coach currently has Michelin's on it...they are weathered and i had no worries in my mind if they would make the 800 miles journey home when we bought the coach last summer. If i knew they would pass a safety inspection [i am a licensed vehicle technician) i would take my time to replace them BUT seeing as how it has to be safetied this spring, i need tires and dropping close to 2 bills on tires just is not in the cards [plus did i mention i hate buying tires....lol].
Anyone know anything about the DurAvis MD700 by Bridgestone?
Im just going to go with load rating "E" tires......we tend to run light when we travel but this summer, if things sort out pandemic wise, we will be in areas were water hookups dont exist so we may be heavy.When you are tire shopping, look at the difference between LRD and LRE. When I last looked, there was almost none and some suppliers didn't even offer an LRD.
And, If you have actually weighed the coach, you may find that LRD will be marginal on the steer wheels.
Did you ever have a blowout or failure with the Transforc?We had load range D on some delivery vans I used to have crews run back in the 90’s. Never weighed the vans, but that is what they had and what we replaced them with. But we also had random tire failures.
We decided to up to load range e tires and those random blow outs stopped.
Who knows maybe we were over rated, but I doubt it.
I am shopping for 4 for my coach this spring. Not sure what I will go with. I have transforce on now, but think maybe they ride a little rougher.
