I needed a set of 6 tires for my "94 Chevy dually with the Cummins motor. Originally it took LT 225/70/16's I think. I decided on P235/85/16s for better fuel mileage and a higher lift. This size was already on the truck when I bought it. My son bought a set of "Thunderers" for his 2016 Chevy and liked them so I decided to try them. They are advertised as "commercial" tires, made for "heavy loads" and with "thicker sidewalls". The whole set of 6 was only $651 on Amazon, with free shipping and no taxes. I was amazed at the price, and very impressed with the quality so far. They are the heaviest, stiffest tires I ever bought. I keep 70# in each tire. Rated for 60K with heavy loads so I anticipate doing better than that since I don't haul much anymore. Yes they ride a little rougher but who cares? I am generally the only person in my truck. I wanted the toughest tire for the money that I could find. I think I found them.
