I got mine on Discoumt Tire's EBay direct store. Local tire shop was happy to mount, balance and install them for a reasonable charge. I backed my trailer up in front of one of their bays and they went to work. I could've put it IN the bay, but they were happy to just do it out front. They earned my repeat business that day.

What size tires and what load range do you have? IF possible, depending on the tire size, try stepping up a load range if you rims will handle it.

It seems the more entry level tires are still limited to a 65mph speed rating. Our oem Ranier tires being one of them. Some manufactures have upped the speed rating, like Carlisle and Maxxis. Not sure about other brands. Not suggesting to tow at a higher speed, but again, having more "cushion" between travelled speed vs speed rating is good.

I have had good luck buying from our local Discount Tire. For both vehicles and trailers. They just have customers park the trailer outside on the cement pad so the jacks don't sink into the asphalt.

Good luck!

You get what you pay for....

We bought our truck from my wife's friend from HS, and the tires weren't in the best shape. We tried a trip from Texas to Central Florida in July of 2013. Just before going into Mobile Bay Tunnel blew out a RR tire. Luckily a young gentlemen stopped and helped me change it out. Went to a Wal-Mart in Mobile, AL., and SPECIFICALLY asked for some heavier truck tires because I knew we were going to be pulling a U-Haul trailer back to Texas.

Finally getting into the hotel at 1 am. in Tallahassee,FL., Momma wasn't real thrilled about the other tires on the truck. Called WM in Tallahassee the next morning, and found some tires. Looked at the new pair Mobile put on, they put on passenger car tires. After store managers going back and forth, and almost 5 hours, I left with 4 new Dextero LT truck tires. Tallahassee gave me full credit for the tires Mobile put on, and $702 later, I drove out the door. BEST tires I've had in a long time. These are 10 ply light truck tires, ride decently, and have worn only about 4/32 in over 20,000 miles.

I ALWAYS get the road hazard and lifetime mount and balance with any tires I get. My wife had a '79 Mustang and I got some tires at Discount Tire along with the certificate. Two weeks later she ran over something and had a nail sticking out of the sidewall of the tire, couldn't be fixed. This was back in 1984, and the certificate cost a whopping $4.37 for a new tire. Money well spent.

Discount tire store will match any advertised price and mount your tires outside in their lot! Also do free air checks when you get ready to hit the road. If you buy from them, they will also rotate and balance every 5,000 miles as well.

Yes, road hazard on tires is one insurance that has paid off for me too. The shop I deal with will rotate them every 5K also at n/c with the road hazard. I usually buy from a national company so you can get them checked out no matter where you are.

So far, Firestone has been a good choice for me.

I like to think Discount Tire has lost money on me buying road hazard insurance (every tire, every time, no exceptions), but I've bought a lot of tires there over the years, and never the cheap ones...

The Dextero's I got at WM are made by Bridgestone, and if it wasn't for that, I probably wouldn't have made the jump. They wanted me to get some General's they had but I'd never get those again. Didn't wear very well, at all.

When I got my new wheels, DT wouldn't mount one of my tires because it had a chunk taken out of the sidewall right by the bead. So they gave me a used tire so I could get the bad tire replaced. Went to WM and got the road hazard done and bought another new tire to make a pair, and put the other as a spare. WM gave me the DT used tire back, plus the tire they were to road hazard out. Basically got 4 new tires for the price of 2, and have a pair of good TV tires unmounted I can throw in the P/U bed when we go on a long trip, in case I have problems on the road.

I think I am finished with Discount Tire. I got my last truck tires there and it took forever and a day to get out. Tried to save a few bucks and just didn't like the service. We have a small family owned business that I should have gone to and will in the future. They have been in business since 1954, so its not a fly by night operation. They are not as cheap as Discount Tire, but the service makes up for it.
