Hey thanks for the help. Also thanks for not starting a tire bashing frenzy here too. I used to be on another rv site but as soon as you bring up anything about tires it seems to be they are all crap except maybe Maxxis or go to an LT tire. While I don't doubt everyone has a reason for making the decision they did it certainly isn't up to the rest of us to bash another for the reasons they chose what they did. Any tire if used enough, neglected, curb rash, or just plain enough of them out there will hear complaints about almost all tires. Most people are more likely to come on these forums to discuss problems they have had to share insite with others of what to avoid. However most people that have had no problems you likely will never hear from them and they go on living life. My choices are purely based on never hearing the name Akuret, never having a problem with Carlisles, wanting to upgrade to a higher load range to have more safety factor, not wanting to replace wheels too, and I just am not sure a larger diameter LT will fit in the wheel wells anyway.
Probably best motivation I have for sticking with ST tires is that is what is required for trailers, not that LTs will not work, they most certainly will in proper application. Nope my decision came based on my chat with the insurance company. When I asked if damage to the camper because of a blowout would be covered she replied as long as it doesn't look like it was caused by neglect such as wrong tire application, tire old and dry rotted, or something that I should have replaced but felt oh it will go another year.
Again I am thankful I didn't get the wrist slap of those tires suck. I know many have run the Akuret tires with good luck and I support your decisions. I also know it is very possible I could run mine for a couple years and have no issues. I could also buy Carlisles or any other tire for that matter and have problems immediately.
Time will tell I guess.
