Glad to have you here.

Tires and brakes are 2 items I demand quality in. Too much riding on them (no pun intended).

Thank you all for your welcome and helpful responses. I tried to find out the wheel capacity but could not read them. I shall ask the dealer later today. I would like to go to the GY G-614 if possible. I am concerned about LT tires as the do not have the side wall support like the ST ones. My tires are ST235/80R16E in size.

Maxxis makes that size and load rating and is one of the few well regarded ST tires. Since you already had LR-E tires, your wheels are rated to at least 80 lbs.

Thanks SkiSmuggs. Yes the wheels are rated for 80 psi. I shall look at Maxxis as one of my options.

I couldn't find a nearby dealer, so I ordered the Maxxis M8008 tires from Amazon. I checked the manufacture date when they arrived and they were only a few weeks old. I had them mounted and balanced by a tire shop down the road. My only regret is that I didn't specify steel tire valves as I want to install TPMS. 7,000 miles through temps up to 110 and no issues at all.

If it external (screw on) TPMS, you need steel valve stems to prevent them from wobbling around.

Thanks SkiSmuggs. They are external screw ons but have a lock on them.

Hi John H. thanks for your post.

Mine have a lock (allen screw) too, but another issue I have with standard valves is that the rubber shoulder below the threads comes up high enough to prevent the monitors from fully seating so that they have a tendency to leak. I have removed them until I get the valves replaced with steel valves.

Just finished checking with Keystone. The wheels are G rated for 110 psi and will take G 614 tires. Just ordered 4 tires @ $1621. They will have steel stems to take the pressure and TPMS.

Thank you everyone for being so helpful and sharing your experiences with me.

Just got back from a 7400 mile trip. G614 Goodyears worked great. Pressure never went over 117 psi at end of day and tire temperature did not go over 80F. We were doing I 90 and I 94 with some side roads. Started at 107 psi every morning. Speeds 65-75 mph.

I recommend the G rated tires any day. Thank for everyone who helped the decision to get these pricy tires, They are worth it.

Stay far away from the Chinese will pop tires made in the Sun Ting Wong tire factory. Go with LT (light truck) tires. I assume you are aware that ST tires are rated only for 65 mph?
