Lucky there are slowly becoming some better quality ST available, however it has been a long and bumpy road getting to this point. Cal's record speaks for it's self. He is all over the inter with many different user names promoting ST tires as if his is on the manufacturers payroll.

Enough said. Chris

Snoking, "Enough said. Chris" If there is a god, and there certainly is, you will be telling the truth.

Tire industry news has reported that Triangle Tires will soon be manufactured at a NC plant. The attached reference depicts their tire line-up.

They have added a ST235/80R16 LRF.

Chris, enough. This isn't the Duramax forum. Here, we all have to play nice and be courteous to each other.

I do have an email from Keystone with the build information that states LT 235/85-16s were installed at the factory.

Just saying.

Russ. If your vehicle did not have the requires Vehicle certification label (GAWR, VIN, Tire Size and inflation plus other information) you need to file a complaint with NHTSA as your RV is not in compliance with DOT regulations and Coper Canyouis required to fix the situation. maybe all they will do is mail you a tticker. I don't know what they will do but theyMUST have the placard on the outside driver side toward the front. That's the law.
