townfair tire..crew cab problems!!!! read..

i can only speak for 35in toyo open country m/t's on 20in rims as thats was my issue but im pretty sure theres others as there computers do not catch the heaviness of the diesel crew cabs..

check your tires to make sure there rated for the correct weight... specially crew cab's... we found out my mistake "8 months/10,000miles later" that our tires were the wrong rating for our truck.. we were over almost 500lbs unloaded.. pretty scarey...

i had crazy tread wear on the rear of the truck.. no not from spinning them but from the tire being over loaded..

check the weight on the rear axles says it on the door tag and then see how much weight your rear tires will handle.. its stamped on the side of the tire in small writing... f350 crew i think is 7,000 and a f250 crew is 6,000.. dont hold me to the numbers though..

town fair tires do not show the correct load rating for diesels in there computers..

i have talked to a few other crew cabs in my area and there both over weight... they are both getting free replacement or upgrades to 37's for free as i did.. if you need help i will help the best that i can... hope this helps save someone from having a blowout or wearing through tires super fast....

The load rating should be right on the sidewall of the tire.

What is the specific issue with townfair? Do they not post their tire ratings?

make sure your facts are straight

even a laod range D tire in an oversize should supersede the capacity of your OEM E rated

talked to toyo and i had these 35X12.50R20LT 121Q E 3195lbs.. townfairs computer shows these as the correct tire... after talking to the head person that over seas the whole northeast and he did some research.. he said toyo is 100 percent right and they did put the wrong tire on the truck..


i needed these LT315/60R20 (35X12.50R20) 125Q E 3695/bs

Maybe you just got some bad tires and Toyo agreed with you to keep you as a customer. 3195lb capacity per tire is 6390lb capacity on that axle (3195x2). All four of those tires should have been able to support 12,780lbs.

3 of my friends have Super Duty trucks, the only one of us that doesn't run Load Range D tires is the guy that puts 2 mud race trucks on a goose neck. In fact, the 365/65-16 Toyos that I used to run had about a 3200 lb rating, but were a Load Range D tire.

6390 is under rated for the rear.. the rear is 6500 or 7000 i forget without looking... for some reason it doesnt matter over all its just the rear there going from.. i pissed through a set of rear tires and toyo says it was do to the fact i was over weight that cause the crazy wear... i figured the front would be the problem but they all go from the rear weight.....

is this all about how fast the wore ?

when you noticed fast tread wear did you rotate ?


I will back up that My Toyo's 18 x 37 ish ( metric size not handy ) wore faster than hell and thats being rotated

my Pro comps lasted 50k miles and these are 25k and done rotated and tire pressure maintained I rarely light them up

The 315/75R16 BFGs I run are 3195 max load, 121Q as well, the only difference is that they are Load Range D. Seems to me that if the fronts aren't wearing funny but the rears are, then maybe you got a bad pair of tires and Toyo knows it.
