Replaced Marathons with "G" Rated Tires

Today I replaced our Goodyear Marathons with "G" Rated Tires on our Pinnacle.

We should not have any tires problems when we head to Texas and beyond in a few weeks.

I would certainly hope they are up to the task. Look good. Be sure and check the torque on the lug nuts. All tire techs are not created equal.

I did not replace the spare, kept the Marathon "E", was thinking about replacing it too, but guess it will work fine for a "Spare"

Let me know how your TST Systems works in the real world. I got mind about a month ago, but have only used it on my truck so far "playing with it". I'm impressed at this point, but I won't actually use it on the Designer until late April when I head to Florida for the summer.

TST TPMS system

Ed: I bought the TST 510 system w/ 8 sensors. Installed the day before I left for Florida 2 weeks ago. It took all of 45 minutes.

It was easy to understand and works like a dream.

Just told my wife that it was worth every penny just for the peace of mind.

TST system???

Rob...noticed your tires are balanced. I assume it is a good idea since you had the rims off to get the tires replaced. But, are there any who have balanced them just to balance them? I have never done it, nor heard of it being done. Could be a good idea though.

It's always a good idea to get your tires balanced. You'll probably not feel the difference in the tow vehicle, but you can bet that the trailer will feel the difference.
