I have only 14k on mine and they look and ride great, but now they are 10 years old and I am thinking I should retire them and get a new set. Any thoughts?I got an easy 60K (100K km) miles off a set of 395/85R20 XZL Michelins on my 27000 lb U500 camper.
I had the standard EarthRoamer Michelin tires with air ride on ER64, steer in front and drive in back. I have the MPT81's with air ride on ER116. My experience with Michelin tires on the EarthRoamer was awful. They tract very badly with any grooves or ruts on paved surfaces and when aired up to specified pressures give a very rough ride.turbopilot, which 37 inch tires did you have on your old ER, the Michelin drive or steering tires in front? You find that MPT 81's track on the highway as well as the Michelin steering tires? And finally, do you prefer the air ride over the old suspension on the highway?
Yes I do, and the wheels are 20x10 1st attack brand, made for wild fire fighting trucks. I paid $900 for the set, but I think they retail for around $1600. No lift in the truck, just lots of trimming to make it fit and turn.Coastal, do you have any more pics of that Ford? Those tires look amazing! Also, are the rims Rickson?
