Bill, You must be awake all night finding these great pictures much appreciated. Always thought the U.S type Mack grilles looked cool compared to the Aussie ones, I take it that is a Mercury sleeper ? Geoff

I used Kumho 983 425/65R22.5 20ply steer on my heavy dump for years with good luck routinely with 20,000 +lbs.on them, about $800 ea.
Michelin on the steers
I have also used Michelin on the steers the Kumho held up as good and a few bucks less
Michelin on the steers
Kumho also has 10.00 X 20 in the catalog still


Unfortureatly, the last set of Kumho's I bought had the dreaded wording on them "Made in China" the wore like crap. I have  8-10 Kumho 10 R 20's that are doing OK on my drives. the Korean tires seam ok.
 I just paid more for a set of steer tires and new rims (steel) then I paid for my '83 cabover! They are Michelin 295 80 22.5's. I went with these because I'm always  maxing out an 11 x22.5 and they are the same size but good for 7800  per tire.

I always put Sumitomo tires on my steering axle. It's a heavy carcass.
Wayne next time you're at a tire shop ask to see a new one. Grab the bead and notice how much effort it takes to flex it, then do the same on your Michelins. Even if you don't cap tires. The carcasses bring top dollar.
