I know this is a steer tire thread but, We burn through left, outside, rear drive tires in like 6 months.
It is always the same tire and it has been the same on three different trucks, So it ain't the truck. It is the application of the truck.
I used to normally get about 100k out of steers. We'll see if the wider, lower profile tires do any better. Between the stinger and the car over the hood generating side loads, the shoulders tend to take a beating and give out with ~8/32nds left in the centers.
We run load range J, as there are occasions where the steer is over 14k, although 13800 is a more typical weight.
I recently had to replace the Michelin front right steer tire.It has been on my truck since March 2015
I usually run 60-68
I have been thru 2 tires on the left side since March 2015
to that one.Now I am going to try to get by this one place I know and get my front end checked and lined up
When driven reasonably, yes. In what Ddchawk81
does, he's balls to the wall all night long. 7.48 is probably pretty good - considering.
If you had the throttle pressed to the floor everywhere you go - no regard for terrain or weight, would you expect to get superior fuel economy? At 55, I can get in the 8's, especially limiting how much power I use on hills. If I'm pushing the same load at 70, no regard for hills, I'll get 6 - 7.
