Curious if anyone is using this tire brand. Kelly is an Goodyear owned subsidary. Here is my situation:
Current tires, Michelin, on vehicle when I purchased this past May. Blowout on tag axle in September on way to track. Partial sponsor (Flynn's Tire/OH, PA, WV)sets me up with a Kelly KRP to replace spare. Our unit is in storage now, but I am replacing ALL tires in spring. They felt this was a comparable tire, less expensive to GY or M. Of course, I will do better $$$ through them, but they also carry GY and can order M. I am fearful that I may buy these, mount them on the RV and find that they are rough or harsh riding. That is my number one concern. I do feel that they will perform in the other areas of compare to the other manufacturers. (2-4000 miles per year) Any input.

Kelly is/was a Goodyear subsidiary and is an excellent tire. That said, Goodyear has closed most of the Kelly plants and moving production to China. The Tyler Texas Kelly plant was one of the most productive Goodyear facility but management thought it more cost effective to consolidate production and/or move production off shore.
