    Air shocks

    I don't know what type of pricing you will get in buying 500 sets of the shocks, any ideas as to what applications are covered? I think nowadays the market is soft for these as most folks use extra leaves in the springs or the newer air bags to gain height, and I never would recomend using an air shock to carry loads in a truck for fear they could blow out if too much weight was on them.

    BEST TRAILER TIRES????

    Thanks all!!!! Great info here!!!! and I believe the general idea is that one should stay away from any tire, be it car, truck, or trailer that is made in China!! Around where I live there is limited availability on trailer tires, I CAN get Goodyear Marathons at Sam's (special order) and "some" off/private label brands from the likes of Tire Kingdom, Tires Plus, and the like....

    BEST TRAILER TIRES????

    I am looking at having a 24' 10,400gvw enclosed trailer built to haul our 1957 Chevy and 1965 Mustang around, and using a 15" tire by the way of ST22575R15, on a 6 lug 15" aluminum wheel. I have read some on the tires that are available for this, and think that everyone feels that the GOODYEAR MARATHON load range D is the best one to run.......any comments or suggestions??
