You know it!
Our first trip out (maybe 70 miles one way?) we had a bubble in one tire. That was replaced under warranty but I've had no confidence in the tires since. With the big trip we have coming up I didn't even want to mess with 'em. Plus they're only rated to 65mph which is great in CA but I'll be holding up traffic out on 80.
The truck has Michelin's but I didn't see a necessity to spend that kind of money on trailer tires that *might* see 15K miles in 5 years. Plus the Khumos got some really good ratings.
Just pulling in and then out of the tire shop I could see how much stiffer the sidewalls were on the LT's vs those ST's.
