My tires are rated at 65 so I usually keep it under that. However my Ram lugs at that speed so I usually lock out 6th and that keeps me around 1600 ram at around 64 mph. Going faster sees less fueled economy and unless running thousands of miles doesn't really save bit just a few minutes. Also, it's easier to stay in the right lane than it is to be passing others trying to change lanes all the time.

+3 It's not the tires, I have G-614s it's the overall safety and excessive bouncing at higher speeds.

65 for me on the interstates and 55 on the two lane roads. Don't have the need for speed any more and makes for a pretty smooth and economical ride.

I run the speed limit, which on most interstates here is normally 70. I upgraded trailer tires, Im well under weight, truck feels happy, driver feels happy....so I roll with it. Been pulling trailers for 15 years and I dont see a problem with it.

I usually set the cruise at 65 mph. Tows nice, makes me feel safe and keeps me out of speeding tickets.

I cruise just under 65. My truck stays in overdrive in the tow/haul mode and gets the best fuel economy at that speed.

IF your tires are ST they are only speed rated for 65 mph max.. Don't blame the tires if you have a blow out going faster..

We have traveled at 70 going out west through South Dakota but generally I only feel comfortable doing no more than 65.
