Awesome!


You guys are all great. Thanks all for your help, I'm really seeing the potential of this site!

Iím looking at a set of G rated Toyo tires now. Iím a little concerned about the load rating but Iím hearing that for this tire size (r22.5) they only go to H any way and the Gís are not far off. I will probably replace them every 5 years so Iím thinking it wonít matter. Iím looking at $2850.00 for a set of 6 installed.
Greg

Greg,

Don't put load range G tires on your steer axle. Your Exec is pretty heavy in front and LRH tires have to be inflated to 110-115 psi to carry the rated load. Some folks have up sized to 315s on the steer axle of big Monaco's.

Your replacement schedule won't matter if the tires can't carry the weight. Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.

Hello, just wanted to give you guys an update. I went to Ricks in Arlington and got load range H Goodyear tires. They were a little more $ but for peace of mind I think it was worth it. These guys really know what they are doing, you do have to watch them and remind them to put new stems on. They were not going to do this on their own, I asked, then noticed one guys pup a time on without a new one. I asked and he said he forgot, he took the tire back off no problem and added the new one. They were good guys, I would use them again for sure.

4 good yearís load range H 7160lb each G399 installed, new stems, balanced (with a bag of fine sand) for $3540.00

Thanks for all your help,
Greg

Greg this sand they put in. What is your opinion using this instead of metal weights? I was getting a price on some tires and that's what they do. I never heard of this until then. I have mixed feeling on this method. thank's

I never heard of the sand either, this is just what they did. they didn't ask. I can tell you they ride perfect so far. I can't tell the difference. One of the guys at Rick's said you should use one or the other (not both). He questioned me about mine because they had both (wieghts and sand). I dold him I didn't know, this was the first time I'm puting new tires on. The seem good though.

A correction to my last post... $3540.00 for 6 tires not 4!

thanks,
Greg

Sand is probably EQUAL. It is a fine spherical material but you need to have special valve stems or the valve stems will get plugged up.
