G'day Fellas,

It has been asked some time ago; but I would like to see some more reviews on the Kelly Safari TSR.
They've been around long enough now to have enough fellas put enough miles on them on their trucks.
Especially like to know how they've behaved with the rear wheel torque produced by the heavy Diesel Trucks in particular the 7.3Ltr Trucks.
Towing with these tyres on these trucks? etc.

I'm looking at fitting LT285/75R16/E 126P
Maximum Load Bearing Capacity (for a single tire) 3750lb @80psi.
I know they are Load Range 'E' which is equivilant to the old '10 ply Rating', however I'm finding it hard to confirm the 'side wall ply'.:dunno:
I would hope it is '3 ply Side Wall'.

Cheers,
Reg:beer:

I've got them on my truck, and they are dipping pretty good. I have rotated them at 3000 miles. They ride pretty good, not too good off the road as they clog easy. They were on truck when I bought it, but they were pretty new.

Interco SS M16 Tires

G'day Fellas,

I seems very limited info is out there on these tyres. Especially on how they hold up on the heavier big diesel trucks.

It suprises me somewhat seeing they are an Iconic American brand and made in the US :dunno:

I know Kelly have been owned by Goodyear since around 1936, they make a lot of tyres for other applicatiobns but it seems they are struggling to establish themselves (in seems) in the offroad/truck market.

Because of the limited feed back I've started to look at the Interco SS M16 Tires in the 295/75R16's Load Range''E'.They are a little taller and would fill the wheel arc a little better as I have a 2.5" level/lift.

I believe they are targeted at the same slot between a Mudder and an AT tread?

Also not a lot of info on these even though they have also been aroung a while .


I must be picking the wrong tyres lol :bdh: .


Cheers,
Reg :beer:
