I bought new tires 2 years ago, just before I came back to this website.

I wanted Goodyear marathons, but let the tire shop talk me into Towmasters. The price was just slightly less than Marathons. So far, so good. But I wish I had Marathons.

I believe the size is 205/75R14 ST. The orginal tires were F78x14 bias.

Marathons are the best, they are pricey, but you get what you pay for!

Couple months ago, I was look'n to buy one for my brother.
I only payed $79.00 and I think $110 on the rim. I'd have to check it again, but that's the best I recall.

Got a near-new set of marathons from a local Pomps tire dealer last spring....about two years ago they had done takeoffs as part of trailer recall on some boats (I think it was for Ranger but not positive)...guess they had the wrong size or something??? Anyway, got two take-offs that were like new for $20/ea, mounted and balanced.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
