Who's bringing donuts? Oops I probably should have started a thread for that question.

I am glad I read about this. Where do I find all the rules?
Second, I am in the process of buying a Minnie Winnie and the tires looked good to me. They were Heinz 57 variety. Is that good or bad?

They put 95 psi in them all and it felt a little squishy, I upped the fronts to 105 and the rears to 100 and it handles and rides just fine.

I am Happy!
Congrats on the new shoes Dennis! Hope your "Down South" is going well. Hi to Marcie.

Depends on if it is Heinz catchup or mustard.

Google how to find the date code on the tires to see how old they are first. If they are 10 years old that is bad despite the tread left. I'm no fan of Chinese tires either but that will start a new argument.

The rule is simple.

Before you buy anything, you have to ask a question here on what's best.

It gives everyone a chance to argue about it and something to do. The end result is you end up with more information then what you need and are more confused and don't know what's best.

Just kidding of course! LOL

I do know what my coach weighs, and I didn't need to ask for advice on what is best for whom.
I too have read all the tire questions, and all the advice handed out. ( By the Guru's)

Over the years I have bought and worn out many sets of truck tires of all brands, including the low profile (same used on RV).
Buy the size tire needed of the right load rating, and put the required amount of air in it and it is all that simple.
My point is, it rides as good or better with truck tires, as it did with the low profile Rv tires.
The 10 year old Goodyears that came off rode just fine as well.
I am not trying to sell anyone on anything, just more information to confuse the masses.

No, your confusing the white letter tires with the ones with the thin red line around the sidewall.
