Wes:

That wooden mallet ain't gonna work for THAT mod! But you sound like a guy who maybe has a MIG hidden somewhere and not afraid to use it!

(Mikey...time for more "faces" as Tom puts it!).

They fit great with the 2" lift, I think I'll have to mod the spare tire carrier to get the new spare to fit.

Wes </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

I tried to fit the spare today......no way Jose'.

Those 235 85 16's are 4" bigger then the 225 75 15's.

Gonna definitely have to do a mod to get the spare in there.

Wes </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Ahhhh, I didn't realize you went with the 235/85 tires. Yep, they are taller than my 225/75/16.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Tom, if you have to stick with 15" wheels, I would run the Titan tire. I have read some good things about that tire. Kind of hard to find, but I think any 15" E rated brand is going to be hard to find.

Well, the local tire shop has 165 of them in stock so guess thats not a problem. I did some checking and there are a lot of dealers out there that carry, at least according to the map on the Titan site. I figure that I can carry the almost new "D" General as a spare. Should be good enough to get me to where I can buy another if needed since loading would be the only difference. BUT, if I can get 4 seasons out of my little weak generals, I shouldn't need a spare for a long time, RIGHT!

HD, I think if there's that much difference in the height of those tires you need a new spare. It would really load down the other two if you had the 15 on, almost like running on two axles.

Hey man, you wanna talk awnings instead of tires. I can tell you what is sounds like when a torsion spring lets go and how much it costs to fix it.

Tom,

Are you having the thunder storms we are having here in Lincoln? Every afternoon for 3 days now. Maybe it's just a normal weather pathern, but I'm used to hot LA weather.

Since it looks like their going to be here for a while, the next time I come here the southern route I'll stop by your stomping grounds since your what 6 hrs south of here.

Clark

TOM
the maxxis makes a 10 ply E 8008 15
as well as the titan , and they are good

but there is nothing close to xps 16,

my unit came with the xps rib 16s, i really can't believe ww still tries to run those underated 15" .

i have converted quite afew of these over for people and the difference in ride is unreal .

TOM you can run the xps 245/76/16 on that 7" eagle alloy and it is 1 3/4" shorter than the 235/85/16 and these will work sometimes on ww without lifting,

this works so much better than that little 15

Appreciate the info on the tires. I really don't want to go up any in height if I can help it, in fact I'd like to go lower. However, I'll settle for keeping what I've got. I've got to buy tires this winter and although my D rated Generals have worked great I thought it would be nice to go to the E for more load capacity, although my axle weight is around 12500, which is well within the D rating, which gives me 15240.

I figure I'll keep looking at the market and following everyone's troubles until I'm totally confused and then go buy.

You can run the 245/75 on a 7" wide wheel. Michelins website calls for 6.5-7.5" wide wheels.
I think I will go this size on my next set. They have the same load rating as the 235/85 but like you said, they are shorter.
