    That's what I got... at a significantly higher cost. Your local tire guy was very very good to you.

    Long lasting, budget friendly closed shoulder and low rolling resistance.
    I strongly recommend.
    Good luck.

    Guys, I just got quoted a ridiculously low price for the Yoko TY 517 MC2. I need 8 drives. Does it really matter if the load rating is G? I don't see many H ratings out there.

    So at my price point, I've narrowed it down to the Ironman I-208, the Yokos, and the Doublecoins RLB400. What do you guys suggest? They are all under $400.

    G is all you need for otr. If you go into job sites or scrap yards H would be preferred.

    I would just buy whatever you can find at a good deal. Sometimes TA has a good price if you buy all 8.
