It appears that there just may
be several choices for a car tire that fits the LT's rear end at 165/80/15
There's the 118 mph T-rated Kumho Power Sport talked about above (with picture and specs below) at around $45.00, and:
2. Cooper Trendsetter SE (junk) speed rated S or 112 mph.
3. Dunlop SP20 T rated at 118 mph. $46.00
4. Firestone FR860?
5. Pirelli P400 T rated. $38.00
I don't think it would be difficult to find a nice looking mag wheel, so all that remains is for some brave sole to fab up an adapter plate on their home lathe and sell them to all of us for $100.00. Let's see, about 10,000 LT's out there...
I'll even buy the lathe for a 50% stake in the profits.
At one fifth
the cost of a Metzeler with a close to 1200 lb
. load rating - and if you do most of your riding on the straights pulling a trailer - the Pirelli would be VERY attractive to me. I would not be surprised to see 30K out of it. If you figure the average Metz goes 10K miles you are paying .02 cents per mile vs. .0012 cents per mile for the Pirelli....
I've also listed the Metz specs below in the third frame...
