So I've been checking out my new (to me)1994 38' Kountry Star DP. Front tires: GY G159 265/75R-225, Load Range G, 30th week of 2004. Great. Rear tires: GY G159 245/75R-225, Load Range G, 34th week of 1993. YIKES! But after looking at the rears a lot I see no cracks, etc. They look very good. But I suppose I'd be crazy to drive much on them <sigh>.

Any suggestions on what to replace them with? I don't see the G159 on the GY site anymore. This rig only is used periodically, 4 or 5 trips ea year, but some of our trips are fairly long (planning about 6,000 mi in 3 weeks in June).

I would consider the G149.

Ask your tire shop and they should be able to advise you.

There is also the GRV670's that are made for recreational vehicles. I had them install on our coach when we left Arizona and they ride nicely. Good luck and keep us posted.

If the rim would work with the 275/70 tire as this would be the closest match to the 245/75 in width and diameter. 245/75 22.5 is not available in the GRV670 only the G149.
