Well, I dropped into Morton's in Fredericksburg last Saturday and asked about their mounting a new set of radial tires -- I hate the ME 880s. They refused to install radials on my '99 LT. Last spring, Bob's BMW had only the 880s and that's why I ended up with them. The 880s have trouble with tar snakes in the dry; I can't imagine what they'll be like in the rain. After riding a GS this weekend, I'm longing for radials again to eliminate the annoying "nibbling" of the 880s. Is there some safety issue with radials on the LT? If radials are out, is there a better bias-ply than the 880?
