Funny you posted this.... I have been researching the Continental Tires as my tires will need to be replaced after next season. At that point they will have 5 seasons on them.. I was looking at the 215/75 R17.5

It will be interesting to hear your reports...


Have you had issues with your GY’s?


Not the 17.5’s.. yes with the G614’s.. but I’ve heard several people I trust have issues with The GY.. not a lot, just a few… always like to have my options


Not to mention my buddy just purchased a 2022 Solitude and it had upgraded Continental 17.5's on it.. We researched them at the time and found no bad remarks...other than the $$$$$ but what is not EXPENSIVE anymore !

I can't imagine any Solitude coming with the HTL2 ECO Plus "J" tire. Is it a "H" tire from Continental?

The Alcoa wheels weigh 30# each and tires are 65# so 95# total. Guess it will require a "ManlyMan" to RnR these babies!!!

Going to paint the portion of the hub that shows with Rustolium Hammered silver paint. I want to find these trim rings. Does anyone know the spec for the ring, lug nut caps and lugs nuts?

Ron,

Cummins, you said trim rings but I'm wondering if you misspoke and meant caps like these. If so the standard 8 lug is 6.5" [image]

Look at the pic. The cap/ring has a hole in it in the pic. The lug nut covers snap on.

I don’t know what it’s called I just called it a ring.

Wow, those look super heavy duty; I'm sure they'll serve you well!

I'm wondering if your trailer would have been better as a triple axle to reduce the load on individual tires.

For sure a triple axle would have been better but the entry door location would not allow it.

From everything I have heard the heavy DRV/MobileSuites crowd has had good luck with these tires.

Cummins12V98,

I didn’t realize that your Mobile Suites is only a two axle unit. With the weight that you have I can certainly understand going with the best.....and I think these may be the best.

We went with those on our triple axle, which may have been overkill as we don’t put a lot of miles on our unit. The tires will “age out” long before they wear out. As much as I love them, will be replacing with a lesser tire! memtb

Had a message from the guy that posted the pic above. He said there is NO cap/ring. Upon looking closer it's the reflection of the lug nut caps on the wheel that makes it LOOK like that.

I painted my hubs with Rust-Oleum Hammered paint and installed the tires and wheels yesterday. Now I need some fancy lug nut caps!
