All I had to do was ask. They wanted the work. Simpletire may have an installer in your neighborhood.
My buddy has a Storm and it had Sailun tires on it when he bought it. We changed them out a year ago last Dec. I had a Daybreak at the time and we decided to replace the tires ourselves. We bought Samson, a Chinese tire and really liked them. The Sailun tires we took off looked real good but were going on 8 years old, no weather damage at all. If Samson would have made the size I wanted I'd have bought them again. The section width on a 245 is 1" wider than the 235 and the 75 series is .2 " shorter than the 80, that's as close as we could come.
I'd be afraid to go too big a tire because of the wheel width, and the dealer was worried about the tire space between the duels. Mine has several inches between so I could have went with a larger tire, but I would stay with the 75 series for the height.
