As soon as school gets out for the semester I plan on upgrading my tires. I am interested in tall narrow tires. I have heard of 9.00-16 tires that are some sort of multi-ply construction. Can anyone tell me about them?


Overall dim's of the tires I think I am interested in is 38 +/- tall, 9-10" wide. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks

Does anyone at least know what I am talking about? I know so little about different types of tires that I don't even know if my question makes sense.

Thanks

Pete,
If they are anything like bias-ply tires stay the h*ll away from them!! My chevelle had bias-plys when I first got it and they suck when the road gets wet. the car was all over the road.

Cool

radials are better than bias for road tires, off road,bias plies have tougher sidewalls. look at lt series tires,235r 75 lt(light truck).
