route 66 tires

Has anyone ever heard of them? Supposedly they have been around since 2011. I just found out about the today while looking for new tires. they offer a trailer tire in 235/85-16 load range G which would be perfect for the GN. it needs at least 2 new tires, so why not four

Route 66 235/85/R16 Rated G (14 Ply Tires)

Had seen your thread after my tire dealer in Neosho, MO gave me the details and info about these tires. The company webpage has a little bit to be desired. But the tires look great and ride smoother than my older tires (not a lot of miles, had to replace them due to tire rot). If there is interest, I will post pictures of tread, DOM, etc. They now list the tire as a all purpose truck tire (not trailer only).

My reasoning for going from an E to a G tire is due to the type of roads I drive on (mostly gravel, dirt, rough roads), not long distance per say...just getting down to the fishing hole with the family. I have a 1996 Pace Arrow Vision and the E's seemed to always look flat even when inflated max. Found a scale nearby and will get my vehicle weighted. Also, learned that the tag axle is not carrying any weight. The box spring is shot and the prop board had broke (poor man's fix). Will be putting in proper spring or maybe even air suspension.

Tire company in Neosho, MO is Wiseman Family Tire (will be purchased by Granger Family...don't know if they will change name), but they charged $149.95 per tire.

Currently running 90 psi in each tire (max 110) which is near max of my wheels (stamped 95 psi). The ride home was much better...didn't waller around so much (if that is a good term to use). One thing I noticed, was that the only tires that were not tire rotted of the old ones, were the tag axle (possibly due to no weight on them). Otherwise, all same age, same mileage, same sun...same damage.
