FD:

Hate to visit an old sub, but you can't get E's on a 15"..."D" is it, buddy! Not to mention you're limited to gen's or goodyear's or (yuck...do I have to say it?) carlyes. That's why 16's give you sooooo much more...just write the check (or put that card in the reader), and git 'er done!

I've got the Firestone's on my F250...and I can tell you that the rating is 5000 total. I usuallly run mine at about 70 psi, which makes for a really good ride (and turn up the RX9000's all the way). They do make a diff. I don't have the 'helper' spring, but that would be a good idea also. (Have you weighed yours yet? Geeezzz...load Cordie, let 'er feel the ride in the coach, and get to the nearest CAT scale ASAP!).

All in a day's fun!

Oh Mikey...I'm disappointed...what happens if you were to go to a 3 day workweek?

You just had to ask about the shocks, didn't cha! I'm not sure I'd ever put some Kings or Fox's on my TV (unless I felt like Mario Andretti in the desert), but I have thought about it on the TH. Oh...good sub to start, huh? (You do it, OK?) Gotta make it alot easier on the toys, not to mention the sound system, micro, sat system, you know- all the essentials.

Good idea! Wish I would've thought of it!

Eh, cuse me, but the last time I looked there is a E rated tire called Titan in a 15". Haven't heard anything bad about them, actually not much at all but may be a possibility.

Too lazy to put it in!

Actually, the pic doesn't look very good small. Kinda like this one anyway.

Gotta call it a night, a 16 hr day and a 14 and its time for a little sleep.

Here is a link you can use for proper inflation pressures.

http://www.trucktires.com/zip/Light_Truck_Tables.ZIP

You will have to check out each file for proper size, be sure to look for the "C", "D" and "E" ranges. The first one has LT225/75R15 and LT245/75R16. The 2nd one has LT235/85R16. Probably the 3 common tire sizes on TT or 5'ers.
