I like those Generals but wonder why they are on "Closeout".

My el-cheapo Kelly Explorer Plus (84T) are brand-new, but hopefully by the time they show signs of wear there will be many more 185/60R15 tires to choose from.

Those were the only 2 in that size that had a load rating of 88T. I would go with 84T also, as I am not going to have the van loaded down, but I thought tire places won't install 84T tires due to liability issues, and also does using 84T affect the warranty?

Dunno why replacement tires you put-on might affect the warranty, nor would I expect tire places to refuse to sell to you, though I suppose a Mom & Pop shop might make you sign some sort of waiver if they looked-up the NV200 and compared to your load needs.

In my case I bought my NV200 from a dealer that put-on the 84Ts and thought nothing of it. Didn't (apparently) care about the load rating, and certainly didn't warn me as a buyer that the van as they equipped it was now under-rated.

I got a fine deal on the vehicle and don't intend to load-down the vehicle so didn't bother to go-back and complain to them. No doubt at 20,000 miles that were on the van the OEM tires had worn-out and the new Kellys were put-on to make the thing more attractive to buyers...

Cool, thanks for the info. Do your tire pressure sensors work fine with the 84T tires?

I have read, and I asked one place about installing 84T tires and they said that they couldn't do it because it's not listed as the proper tire for the vehicle...

Sounds like the tire place you contacted was more responsible than the dealer I bought from!

;)

I couldn't tell ya whether the pressure sensors work fine. All I know is that there is no alert, and assume they aren't smart enough to know 84T from whatever; they only sense pressure.
