I don't have one at all and around here going anywhere is 50 mile one way trip as cold as it is right now I have no desire to road side change a tire if I could avoid it. Sure would like to get one of these, or a reasonable homemade one. Thanks for the size...

    Michelin VS Goodyear 16.00r20 Which is better? Costs less? Lasts? any discussion?

    I notice in other areas people talking about the 35-45 MPH lope or how ever you would describe the wobble as the truck transits that speed range. I felt somewhat assured that apparently they all do this, Prior to that I was convinced I had a tire that was wonky. Has any one noticed if that...

    What have you done to your MTVR today?

    Went for a 100 mile round trip today to get the title (VIN inspection required) and the plates! Road was coated with inch or more ice, had to wait for 30-40 minutes on the interstate while they cleared a jack knife semi, multiple roll overs and people taking a digger in the ditch. I now KNOW the...

    I would take it back if I could, we are about to dry up and blow away here. Missed something like half of our normal for moisture for the year, we didn't burn this year cause nothing really grew.

    So far I have three and they are pretty tight, mere slits about 3-4 inches long in one area like gills on the sidewall. I will have to get off my but and get the socket I need for them lug nuts now.

    I also scored these for spare maybe better then 50% tread left. Thanks to another JonM934 I have two spare rims with 10-20% tread tires on them for spares, trying to decide if I want to remount the used Michelins on the rims and hold the other tires, put the Goodyear on a rim and keep it on the...

    Michelin VS Goodyear 16.00r20 Which is better? Costs less? Lasts? any discussion?

    I am looking at the 2 tires commonly available and wondering is there any difference? can you mix and match? Why is it I can find the Goodyear's to buy new but not the Michelin's and so on. I recently got my mk23 and want to get it fixed up with a set of tires of similar quality. The ones that...
