Tires-Kumho 857

Tires on my "new to me" 353 hour '92 ProStar 205 were older than I thougt as both gave up the ghost last weekend on our 2 hr. tow to the lake. What a pain in the arse....

I've always run Marathons but the set I bought for the fishing boat earlier this year came stamped "Made is China" and sure enough the recent reviews are not good so I'm moving on. Went looking for the highest load rated R14 I could find: Kumho 204R14 load range D at aprox. 2200 lbs.

I have only a 1/2" free space at the garage door header with the tower folded so moving up to a 15" higher load rating is not an option right now.

Tires are ordered and will be here in a couple of days. Any other option I'm missing before giving these a shot?
