But, if he only need a D rated and a PSI of 60, then running E rated at 60 PSI in the rear and D at 60psi in the front is the same thing.. Just because he can go to 90PSI in the rear means nothing.. PSI holds your weight, not the 'ply rating'.. The rating only means how much PSI the tire can hold.

Well all that said all I can tell you is good luck.....there is nothing like the experience of a blow out while driving down the road in a motorhome. It's a real eye opener. Check with your reputable tire dealer...

Ok...OK....I got my new tires. They fit fine and they are new.....yeah. But, I didn't know till the local tire guy put them on for me that they where bias ply. I went back and looked and looked at the discription for the tire and no where did it say bias ply or radial for that matter. Now before anyone get their panties in a bunch let me say this. Yes, I'm keeping them and yes I know they are not the best tire for a RV. But please understand this, the majority of the time like 99% of the time it will be sitting in my backyard. It will make two trips a year to a hunting ground about 200 miles away and no we will not be taking the Intersate. It will be driven on two lanes and less then 60 mph..more like 50 to 55 mph. Then the rest of the year if someone uses it to go camping it will travel a whole 15 miles round trip to a local lake. We do not use this as our main camper we have a new travel trailer for that. So I understand I screwed up...but the very LITTLE it will be driven and the short distances it will go, I've decided to just go with it and keep them. Thanks Woody

Bias Ply? Really? Where did you get them? The only 'bias ply' tires I know of are off road use or for 'classic' cars..

What are the size numbers? The bias ply have different numbers than radials.

You know I'll have to go check again. I believe they where 8.00/16.5 110/105?? To answer the one question, they came from easy-tire.com Woody
