    You don't say how much he wants for them.
    Hard to go wrong with michelin except that they cost a premium.
    They are to rich for my blood except their steers.

    I think they are RV tires? Should be OK if you're not real heavy. Somewhere in the cobwebs in my head I think some? RV's had wheels that were a bit narrower, might want to check that.

    If you have steel wheels on it now you need to ck the stubs to be sure they are long enough to have 1 or 2 threads showing past lug nuts with thicker alum. wheels on trailer?

    235/80's suck. I ran a spread axle drop with them and within 600mi ended up blowing and replacing 7 of the 8. After picking up a load in Houston going to W. Tx.
