Author Topic:   Tire Recommendations
posted September 14, 2000 07:12 PM           Edit/Delete Message Reply w/Quote
I am looking for some inexpensive tires for my 1989 Chevy K1500. I am looking a Liberator Tires from Walmart and also Wild Country Tires from a local tire store. Both of these tires are about $80 per tire for LT265/75/16. This is my size and general price range. I can't find any info on either of thest tires on the internet or anywhere else. Does anyone know who makes these tires and if they are any good? Or does anyone have any other recommendation for inexpensive tires in this size? Also, what's the difference in LT and P tires? Right now I have Goodyear Wrangler TD tires which are designated as LT265/75/16 Load Range C. Do I need to replace these with LT tires with Load Range C?
Thank you for any advice.

here is a list of tires in your price range from tirerack.com(i would call them toll free and ask them what they would recommend)Goodyear Wrangler RT/S BSL $89
Uniroyal Laredo AWP D OWL $89
Dunlop Radial Rover RV C OWl $89
Firestone Steeltex Radial R4S II D $88
Dunlop Radial Rover A/T D OWL $85
Yokohoma Geolander H/T Y816 C $84
Yokohoma Geolander H/T Y816 SL OWl $77
Dunlop Radial Rover A/T $77
Dunlop Grandtrek C OWL $74

Now many of these tires did not get good ratings from customers. the only one on this list that seemed decent was Dunlop Radial Rover A/T

The load is related to vehicle weight and towing capacity, assuming that some people would use a CK1500 to tow a boat or something. Again call tirerack with that load question at 888 541-1777. No I do not work for them, just have done business with them and they are a great tire/wheel company.

Yes you should replace the tires with the same or higher Load Range .

Yes you should stay with LT type tires.

One has to wonder why price is so important when your life depends on your tires.
