Thanks to all for your input. I had intended to replace with Michelin LTX M/S 2's again,but Michelin has discontinued this popular tire & replaced it with the Defender LTX M/S. However, they for some reason do not make it in a 235/80R17 size. I do all highway driving & towing so do not want an A/T tire. Has anyone found a good alternative?

you could check with BJ's tire and Costco , sometime the clubs have tires in stock that a Michelin dealer cant get.

Thanks for the info. Is your new GMC a diesel? If it is, how many miles per gallon do you get with those Primacys, both towing your Redwood & just the truck?

I haven't had the truck long enough yet to get mpg data, sorry. With less than 1000 mi. it is averaging about 13 in and around town and 18 on a 60 mile trip so far.

I think you’ll find that most CC Dually diesels get between 10.5 & 11.5mpg when towing the Redwood.

I'm on my second set of Firestone Transforce HTs. The pin weight of the Redwood and weight of my Lance TC, are within 200#. 3300 and 3500. I run what the door sticker says. 65 frt. and 60 rear. I rotate them once a year and get 40,000+ miles. I don't run mine all the way down, when it gets squirrely when empty in the rain I change them.

Michelin tires are more price but I have been using firestone transforce for years and.they out preform michelins. Snow and ice they work even better. Fuel economy is the same the draw back I would say is they are just a little noises then the Michelin tires. But do what u can afford and good luck.
