Are you buying used?

If cost isnt an issue look into the conti MPTs, after only 1000 miles I am in love with mine.

I know a distributor here if you are interested.

395/85R20 46" tall Goodyear MVT

Haven't dealt with them but prices seem decent. They're used but most of the tires we change on our equipment there's little or nothing wrong with and would last a LONG time on a regular pick up.

1999.5 707 Conversions Super Duty 7.3 Crew Cab LB Dually 4x4 Edge Evolution, Oil HPx, Fuel FRx, tons of filters, hutched n harpooned, B&W turnover ball and 5th wheel, lotsa goodies.

How do you know they're fully aired up if they're only reading 20psi?

well i dont know if they are fully aired up but they sure do look fully aired up and they are hard as rocks. which leads me to believe they are pretty full. and i dont want to put too much air in.

Even with zero air in those tires, they'll still be hard as rock. Do a chalk test. Mark a line of chalk across the tire and drive around the block. If all the chalk is gone its underinflated, if only the chalk in the middle is gone its overinflated. Another way to tell if its underinflated is heat.... the tires will get really hot when aired down.

Now, these tests are for conventional tires. Military tires can run in any condition. They won't make your gauge read wrong though. ..
