Last March, I did a trip from CO east to the coast in so Carolina down to Fl back west to Tx and back up to Co. Most of that was on interstate hwy with 75 mph speed limit. I'll have to look at my fuel log to see how many tanks I went through, but it was alot. I want to put another tank in the bed for the next trip.

Even in Montana I kept the speeds at or below 65.
ST tires are not rated above 65 mph. Blown tires cause a great deal of damage at a minimum, and up to loss of life.
Not worth it.

My tires on the truck are e rated 10 ply and I run 75psi. Don't know what speed they are rated for, but it is well beyond 65 I would think. Trailer tires are only d rated, but have a solid rubber band on the rims for run flat if necessary. Truck and trailer feel very stable at that speed.

My new travel trailer came with 75 mph rated tires. Apparently they make 87 mph rated trailer tires now 😯!

And none of that has anything to do with my truck thread. It really has nothing to do with getting good economy either
