I'm a bit supprised at some of the low mileage reports in this thread with 19.5s . From reading past threads I was under the impression they were getting in excess of 100000 miles .

I think it depends on what you want out of a tire. If you were primaily on pavement in good conditions yeah you could easily take them down to the wear bars and be happy up to a high mileage point. But if you go off road or drive in winter conditions, snow mud, ice. you are going to replace them at much less wear. I got rid of my first set at 45,000 because they were primarily road tires and once the tread started to wear, they basically sucked on anything but dry pavement. My new AT 19.5s have a much deeper tread to wear. On the other hand on my load rage E tires I'm lucky to get 30K out of them. A set of 4 19.5 Roadmasters only ran me $900 which is way less than I spent on Load range Es

I’m more likely to age my tires out, too. I’m averaging barely over 10K a year. I did replace two front tires since I didn’t like how they were wearing. At 45K, I think the rear tires will go farther still.

Don't overlook Toyo. I had a set of 19.5s on my first coach and they rode very smooth. I think the ones I had were 16 ply G rated.

Discount Tire is having a Black Friday sale. Maybe a store near you? Their website sucks.

Hi Dave,
Is your truck 2WD or 4X4? Do you need M&S rated tires?
I've been running Bridgestone M729's for the past 3 years. VERY happy with them.
Cheers

Wow. Eleven years on tires used to haul a TC. Regardless of the mileage, I would have replaced them years ago. Since you only went 60K miles in all those years, I would buy more medium grade tires and replace them way more frequently. The usual recommendation is 7 years but with low use even that is questionable. The lower the use, the more frequently tires should be replaced. An unused tire should be replaced in about 4-5 years.


Agree, and also maybe why the OP is replacing them. I had the Goodyear's and blew one at 8 yrs old. Just posted in the other 19.5 thread.

I went with the Hankooks, a little higher weight rating than the Goodyears.

I too am getting ready to purchase new tires on my 15 F450. I still have the original continentals and will be lucky to get 45-50k out of them. They are strictly highway tread and are terrible in the rain.

Been happy with Hankook DH07's 245's on my SRW Ram 3500 with the vision wheels. Have a pretty aggressive thread which I like but they do make some road noise at highway speeds.

Thanks everyone. I've got a local place looking into it for me.
