    (Original question I asked)

    We ended up replacing the tire with what came on PUP originally - a Duro...

    There aren't loads of choices -- not at all like shopping for new shoes for the TV. Depending on the size, you'll have more selection. Duro and Carlisle are the two you'll see most often and both are good tires. Both companies have been around a long time.

    The most important things are matching the load range to the weight of the PUP and getting ST rated tires.

    Thanks, Lynn I bought my pup from Eddy's and after 1 1/2 months the rear lift spring went and they tried to put me off for 2 months to get it fixed. I threatened to report them to the AG and then put my wife on thier backs and finally got the problem fixed. With alot of yelling they did the repair for free {pup was bought used}. Thankfully so but all in all a very bad experiance! When I originally called with the problem one of the service techs actually told me he wasn't sure they could fix it because they never worked on something like thet before. OH MY GOD!

    I hope you replaced the other spring also, not just the one that broke. If one goes the other is soon to go. Nothing better than doing the job right which gives you a great sense of safety feeling. Springs aren't much to replace, and you can also upgrade to a better spring when you do replace them.
