It was never 4 to six inches. The G rated tires are larger, I just though that all of a sudden it looked closer than 2 years ago when we bought new tires. Original tires from Keystone were only E rated (10 ply). These new one are G rated or 14 ply. I thought I had about 2 inches a year ago when we changed one tire, but now it seems closer. What could cause the tires to get closer to each other? Do I have a suspension issue? Springs? BTW, the clearance us the same on both sides. I keep 95-100 lbs of air (cold) in the tires.
