    Why not 285/75 16 tires? Seems like the fatter tires will wear better?

    well i bought a 1977 cavalcade that is pretty good shape compared to even 5 year old campers,it 3600 lbs and my stock 350 tbi did alright.. i have only towed twice being the trailer breaks dont work and i dont have a break controller in my truck, but hopefully with the new motor next spring it will haul a lot better

    Probably personal preference. I like a taller skinnier tire with a nice square profile. 285s always look fairly bulbous to me on factory wheels. I put probably under 10,000km/year on all my vehicles so tread wear isn't a huge deal.

    Picked up a used compact tractor, roughly 800 miles round trip, shredded one trailer tire on the road back....
