Problem solved.
Speed Rating
  • M Up to 81 mph
  • N Up to 87 mph
  • P Up to 93 mph
  • Q Up to 99 mph
  • R Up to 106 mph
  • S Up to 112 mph
  • T Up to 118 mph
  • H Up to 130 mph
  • V Up to 149 mph
  • W Up to 168 mph
  • Y Up to 186 mph


W rate would be a speed rating and W=168 MPH not a load rating

Load range Vs Ply Rating
A= 2ply B= 4ply C= 6ply D= 8ply E= 10ply F= 12ply G= 14ply H= 16pyl J= 18ply L= 20ply M= 22ply N= 24pyl

Edited my original thread. Stupid spellcheck changed my E to a W.

Defective Tires

I've said this before...why should we have to pay to upgrade tires on a rig costing us $70,000 and how can they get away with putting such unsafe tires on these rigs over and over again. I was told by a salesperson that they ran into a bad batch of tires on the 2015's...but this seems to keep happening on the newer 2016's!!

Same reason every rig has problems that could be solved by a little extra labor. People keep buying them. That is the same as accepting them. I'm not saying it's right, it's just what it is.

If a mass of potential buyers wouldn't purchase one with stock tires, the message would come through quickly.
