I've worn out two Hankook tires and didn't get more than 15000 miles from either one. I need this size because of the under fender trailer hitch, it limits width of tire I can use. Any one use this size, if you do what brand and how many miles are you getting from them? Looking to stop changing tires every 12 to 14 months. Thanks for your input.

I run a Altimax HP 195/55/16 on mine. I wanted a 60 but I couldn't fine a 60 so I had to go with the 55. I've had no problems running this tire at all and love it. The first two pics are after I installed the tire and the last pic was after 7.5k miles. Good luck!

Does yours wear in the center faster than edges? Also what pressure do you have in it?

I'm running about 37-38 psi. To be honest this my first C/T and it hasn't worn at all as far as I can tell. I'm hoping to get at least two seasons 25k+ out of it Because it's a pain in the ass to install on the rim. lol!
