3. opinions on recaps
4. can I just put 11s on the rears and leave the fronts (those are still good)
5. how hard is it to do it yourself
1- They're all expensive now. Chinese are $300. May as well just pop for new name brand.
2- Open shoulder make more noise. But they have dirt road traction.
3- Recaps are ok, but I'd rather just get virgin tires. Blowouts are nasty and can cause a lot of damage. keep good rubber on your bus!
4- If your bus doesn't have a lowered suspension 11R's should fit just fine. Some buses are low and come with very little clearance for larger than lowpro.
5- How hard is it? that's relative. If you have a really badass impact and air source, and a balancer and lots of big pry bars you may be able to save a couple hundred on getting them mounted. I just go to the cheap truck stop down the road for tires.
