    Has any one run the Kelly MSR tires? I am thinking about a 235/85/16 load range E? What do you guys think?

    I have always run Kelly's on my trucks. Never had any problems with them. Kelly is a division of GoodYear.The price on them's great $50 less a piece then "name brand". I have that exact size on my F-250 I got 40k out of the tires. Put weight in the back, I have never got stuck with them or had a flat.

    This is my first winter with the Kelly Safari AWR's. So far, no complaints other than that they feel 'floaty' to me (at higher speeds), as they have a max pressure of 65psi instead of 85 like my previous tires. But my truck and blade combo is exceptionally heavy.

    Truck has a locker in the rear and six brand new AWR's.... plowed with minimal ballast (salt bags) and no ballast. No problems.

    I have the LT255/85R16's. You may find that the 235's come in a higher weight rating and hold higher pressure ;)

    My cousin has a 96 F-350 and he loves the MSR he has had two sets on it and he'll probably go for a third if he holds on to the truck. I had the DTR worst tires i ever owned, stay away from the DTR.
