I'm thinking I'm going to wait til mine are done. Already have 20,000 miles on the good years. But when it comes time I'll go with a decent E rated tire. May be a little overkill. Cause you can buy a decent beater car for the price of 4 of those tires!

This weeked I finally get my 5th wheel back. Father in-law if now cancer free and getting an apt. Just gotta go clean it up and get it home on Monday. I'll have some pics by then

I just bought 4 Wrangler Territory LTE rated for winter and paid 239$ CDN each. They are very similar to the Duratracs but exclusive to Canadian Tire.

Now looking for 18in rims

Cheers

20" LT-metric E-rated tires are really, really expensive, if you can find ones that fit. Not too great a selection. Found some LT285/55R20E for $440 ea.

I'm picking up some 17" take-offs this week and putting on Michelin LTX MS/2, LT245/75R17E, the cheapest size of that tire I could find for the truck. $270 ea is more like it.

Will sell the old 20" wheels and tires to cover much of the cost. Looks bedamned.
