I had the "E" GY Wranglers n my Avion Platinum. I was running on the edge so I upped to GY "G" and ran at 85psi with perfect tread wear for thousands of miles.

I've had some Bridgestone Duravis R500HD's o mine in LT215/85R16 since the summer of 2018, they've covered approx. 38000km's to date and still look pretty much like new. They haven't shown any signs of drying out, no cracks and up to date i couldn't be any happier with them.

I installed the r 250 bridgestone back in 2013 on my 5ver and have been nothing but stellar. I know some will say they have exceeded there life span but they still look very good. if i replace it would have to be r 500,s not sure they make r 250 anymore. i hate to spend 240.00 if i sell my unit in a couple years. other choices lt 245 75 r 16

Replaced my R250 because they were 8 years old. R250 no longer available but Bridgestone replace them with R238, all steel body ply as the R250 was.

Follow up, just returned from Phoenix AZ put about 850 miles on new bridgestone r500 hd tires. (LT235-85-R16)They rode great I could not tell any differance or ruffness. It gave me great peace of mind not thinking about the Carlisle ST tires blowing out. I sold the Carlisle tires just about paid for my new spare tire. So far Im happy I bought the bridgestone.
