Question about 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
How long should truck tires last? I am rotating and checking pressure. Is their something I'm missing? Hauling a 39 ft. gooseneck horse trailer with living quarters is under towing weight. The engine and trans is designed for hauling ,but the springs are not hd could that be the problem?
If you are hauling most of the time, then consider commercial tyres - often denoted by a "C" at the end of the spec. These have a harder tread compound - so will tend to wear less, and thicker sidewall.
Ask at tyre fitters who do trucks most of the time - and use their advice. Prices can be all over the place, with no bearing on quality or longevity. Use your fingers as the best guide - the harder the tread - the longer it will last.
If you expect snow or ice, keep your softer tyres on the rims for winter, and use the harder ones for summer.
I drive a Land Rover and have 3 sets depending on summer, winter or off-road. Keep them under a tarp, and if outdoors - chained together!
