View Full Version : Suggestions for new tires

First time poster...please be gentle.

I know this question will likely have many answers but I would like to hear suggestions on which tire would be good for my setup.

I have a 2002 PSD 7.3L Crew Cab 4X4 SB towing a 5th wheel camper that weighs approx. 10,500 lbs. I do not know (yet) the actual weights but I believe that is close. GVRW of the trailer is 10,800 so if I'm heavy after a trip to my local scale I will be off loading stuff.

I need 4 new tires. I was told to get E load rated tires but after that I don't know too much.

Advice welcomed.

Thank you,

Of course many will say Michelin. It is a good tire, but there are others. I like Maxxis on my trialer, and right now have Nitto on my truck. They seem to be fine, and carry a very heavy load. I bought them because I couldn't find any to fit the 2005 F350 SRW, besides Continental. I would stay away from that tire. Toyo, and Yokohoma make strong tires. We've ran them on the farm and they did very good.
