There are several brands that are popular. My advise is to shop and pick the one you like. Each to his own.

Trailer tires are said to only have a 5 year lifespan, and the longer and more they sit without constant movement, the more that the oils in the rubbers shift and cause deterioration and the cracking begins.


When in storage, the ground surface (dirt and rock) can also leach the oils from the tires, worsening the problem. You will see postings about parking with tires up on plywood or wooden blocks for this reason.


Covering tires as you do, IMO, also prevents UV damage to the tires.


Being a 2014 TT - I would check into the tire warranty that came with them to see what type of refund or replacement you are entitled too.


I would drive cautiously - remember almost ALL Trailer tires have a 60-65 MPH maximum rating - Check the air pressure as this is the number one cause of tire damage on the road.


Good luck

Good advice and exactly what I would have recommended. I would bet your tires are probably about 5 years old and have spent most of that time sitting, not rolling. That combination can leave you alongside the road.

I'd insist that my dealer replace all four tires AND the spare. You bought a new trailer and deserve new tires beneath it.

And remember - when one tire goes, the other three are then overloaded.

Tires replaced

Just wanted to tell everyone that we took the trailer back to the dealer, Fretz in Souderton, Pa and they called Jayco to get a warranty approval. They approved it and we have brand new tires. The service people were actually a little upset that the tires had gotten past the delivery inspection. So, we have 2 new tires and we are thankful to Jayco.

That's an excellent outcome! Once again Jayco steps up. I expect your new ones are also ST, so keep your eyes on them.
Thanks for the follow up.

5 years is a bit long on an ST tire IMHO. RV tires get specified at close to max rating for the work required. The tire needs to be in good shape all it's working life. Tires derate with time. So at what point are your tires no longer rated for the load? You don't know and neither do I.
UV is only one enemy of tires, Ozone is another and you can't do anything about, it's just the way it is.

We got ours there, too. Good to know they're doing the right thing.
