OK OK, it seems obvious that oem tires are marginal at best, and even if one wanted to replace oem with like-in-kind, the availability and inventory is dismal. Having said all that, what is the consensus opinion of an acceptable substitute for oem?? So far, I have been able to find 265-50-20 from Goodyear, Hancook, Toyo, Falken and a host of others that are slightly wider,ie, 275/285-50-20. Any advice ( either good or bad ) would be appreciated since my local tire dealers seem to be pretty tight-lipped about the whole thing. I rack up about 25K per year on 03 fx-45, most of which is highway driving in the carolinas and georgia.
