New Tires for C

Recommended Posts

The tires were built in the 51st week of 2011, so they are not quite 7 years old.  That being said, I would probably replace them.

I chose 16" load range E, B.F. Goodrich T/A commercial tires for my 1T truck. I watched and looked at 16" tires on various trucks. UPS trucks all had those  B.F.Goodrich tires on them, I reasoned, if the UPS accountants thought it was the best tire for their fleet of trucks, they would be good enough for my truck.

I was right, towing a 15,500# 5er, and I still got 60,000 miles from each set of 4 tires.

I was looking at Michelin tire chart and it looks like I could go from 225/75/16 to 245/75/16 and gain 500 #+ weight capacity. The chart says 16 x 6” wheel is good for either tire size. 

Am I missing something? I would like the extra margin on the tires even though I won’t be overloading.
