I think I just put Goodyear's on mine. But I'm out of town right now. If I can remember I'll look at the brand when I get home in a few days. Didn't have a big selection of 13" tires to choose from. And all only C rated. I did look into getting 14" tires (D rated) but after having the tire shop do some measuring I decided the clearance was just to close as is. Obviously they wouldn't guarantee anything. I know some guys have done an axle flip and that will give some room.

Mine are Maxxis Load C with a 1360 lbs rating at 55psi. Thought I had bought Goodyear's. I probably should have looked closer at that when I bought them. But time was of the essence, and I got what he had in stock. Oh well they on there now. Gonna see if I have any trouble as tomorrow I'm driving them over 700 miles.

Just ordered 2 H188ST 80D 13" from Treditt out of Atlanta,Ga. $150 with shipping. Same as the OM tires. The ones on there are 4 3/4 years old barely used but are showing some cracks. Going with fresh rubber.

Be happy Tugboat! After much research last year, I found that the Maxxis are the best TT tires made. I bought a set for my KZ JAG last summer and I liked them so much, I considered taking them off my trade-in and having them mounted on my new Jayco.

Took a 6000 mile trip last summer and no problems.

Just put 550 miles on them today. Lots of traffic on I95/today. A lot of stop and go and 45mph in heavy rain. No complaints so far. I did notice when getting ready for this trip my spare is a 14". Hope I dont need it.

Made it to Homestead a few days ago. Tires did great. A total of 843 miles here. May be the trailer, may be the tires, but do not go above 65. She starts to get a little squirrelly at 63-64. 66-67 she was all over the road. That rating is there for a reason. Set the cruise control at 63 and that dirt cheap suburban I bought towed her like a champ. Suburban has more speed in her, but the TT dont. Tires about the only thing that worked. Issues with the cable TV and yesterday the AC started acting up. Must have AC in Florida!!
