    Tires are nearing the end. And could only find 235/75r17.5 in this town. The rest are 245/70r, and the tire calculator put them pretty close. The 245 have more ground contact. The 235 rev rate is less, so they may not heat up so much.
    What are y’all’s opinions here?

    edit. . A bit unclear maybe.
    53’. Step Low Pro. . 17.5 mostly hauling equipment.
    Which tire would anyone recommend and why?

    Don’t mix different sizes on the same dual.

    Yeah, I had one go down. The local coop was the only place with any 17.5 tires. These are really close. Looking for opinions on which works best.

    Yes Sir, they luckily had two. Now I have a spare 245.
