We are sure glad we upped from the "E" Rated to the "G" Rated tires on our Pinnacle, due to all the appliance's being on the driver side the weight on the Drivers side wheels is quite high, the "E" Rated tires give us a good margin and are running cool and wearing great after approx. 20k miles.

We were running with TPS at the time of both of the explosions !! In both cases I heard the tires blow before the sensors indicated a problem. We bought the TPS units because in the case of the six year old tire, I DIDN'T know that I had a tire that had failed until a trucker came along side and gave me a heads up. I was dumbfounded that I hadn't been able to feel a flat tire. And it was flat and shredded when I pulled off the road. We included TPS when we bought the new tires. I'm sure there are some high quality Chinese built tires . But when you blow 2 tires on your maiden voyage after you put on all new rubber and KNOW that they had the proper air pressure when they explode, you get a mite testy!!!! I have never been a price buyer when it comes to tires and the dealer knew that. That was another reason that I was really irate. We had bought another set of tires at the same time for a dump trailer hat we use on the farm. He sold us the same brand in a different size. That trailer doesn't spend much time on the road. In the next four years after purchase, I replaced 3 of them due to cord separation and not being able to keep them in balance. They are junk !!!

It was 75 in Phoenix today. I went paddle boarding on Tempe Lake. The dog jumped in the water. No flats.

I am of the opinion that our local tire dealers just don't sell enough RV tires to really know much. We tend to believe them as "experts", but their selling a lot of trailer tires just doesn't equate to knowledge about tires on RV's. Our tires just sit too much.

With this being said, I don't think most of them are being dishonest, they just don't know.

Like Str8shooter commented above; my own research that I did this past summer confirms the findings that ST (trailer) tires are not made in the US, at least when it comes to a 15" inch rim/wheel size. However, Maxxis tires are produced to US standards and in my oppinion, that is why they are good quality tires. I've got them on my 5er and have had no problems...I keep the E loaders at 80 psi (cold)and check the psi every time I stop for gas. We probably put 3-4K miles on them over the summer and just got back from a 600+ mile round camping trip over Thanksgiving.
