8r19.5 tire search continued to be a PITA
« on: June 08, 2021, 05:08 PM »
I had 7 samsons set to order based on shipping costs. The only places I could find that had them in stock turned out to be from 2007 dot stamped.

Would you roll on those? For full price?

I did find Sumitomo ST718 8.00/R-19.5.

Anyone have any experience with this tire?

Putting on 1989 Winne Itasca Suncruiser 27RQ

Tires, shipping, tax, dismount/mount, stems, balance and install came out to be $249.50 per tire. X7

I ended up with 225 75 19.5 Continentals- a bit wider but worked okay I got takeoffs for 100 each
