Radial Ply Tires

Post by June J »

Hi folks,
I have 4 new Denman 9.00 x 16 NDT tires on my WC 53. I would love to fit some good radial ply tires but so far I have only managed to find 255/100R16 Michelin ZXL tires at nearly $1000.00 each so that aint gonna fly!

Does anyone out there have a source, preferably in USA, of a good radial semi-offroad tire at reasonable cost?

Many thanks

VPW list some options in their catalog, so it appears there are some options out there:

Hi Zeph,
thanks for your response, alas none of the tires VPW list are radial ply, they are all bias-ply.

Cheers

the is a tire made by yellow sea that is a knock off of the 9.00 x 16 Michelin XL or XZL they have received good reviews. I think they guy selling the is in Vancouver BC.

yellow Sea 9.00 x 16R I think is the correct size description
