Our rig came new with GY Marathons ST's, E rated, and ran them with no problems for about a year.

Since we are traveling about 9 months of the year decided to get better tires for our heavy rig (we are about 15,200) and chose the Sailun G rated LT tires and are much more comfortable.

Good luck and safe travels.

My TST system works great without a signal booster.

I don't need a signal booster either.

Our Minder Research does need a booster. I would get "false flats" on the 23B until I installed it. When we traded to the 5th it made the jump too and is installed in the basement.
Not needing a booster would be nice but I've installed it and haven't given it much thought since.

The monitor alerted me to both failures before any damage was done (other than needing new tires). I'm a solid believer!

Have same Monitoring system. What indications did you get prior to failure? If temps how high over average? Good to share the indication trending so others can be warned as well.

I put 17.5" Goodyear G114 H rated tires and new 17.5" rims on my 14 Seismic. Replaced the E rated Blowmax specials. Moving to a '16 and I'm taking them with me (just 600 miles on them since mounted on the '14). Told dealer they can keep the new stock Gs and rims. They are G instead of E on the '16 but a brand I've never heard of so I'm keeping the 3.6k$ investment.

Thoughts by the way on filling these with Nitrogen instead of ambient air? The new '16s are Nitrogen filled.

Did you have to use an extender with your 5th wheel ?


Putting TPMs on in the spring would in essence pay for the TPMS if I can get another season out of the stock tires and I'll still have the TPM's after. I am just getting concerned about having too many monitors in the cockpit: GPS, tuner/monitor for tranny temps, future backup camera, big screen OLED TV with Playstation Blueray player, etc. (Wait, that last one will be for the TT not the cockpit of the TV
We use a TPMS and it has helped us stay safe and save a tire from being damaged by running it on low air pressure when it developed a slow leak. But no TPMS will save you from a blow out caused by a tire with broken belts and bulges in the sidewall. Some TPMS systems give some information about air temperature within a tire (like my TST system) which can maybe forecast a tire failure. But the TPMS will not prevent that failure from occurring. A tire that is prone to those sudden failures will not be made secure by the use of a TPMS; the only cure is new tires.

I had two blowouts on new Chinese built tires in 2010. I heard the explosion and was pulling on the shoulder of the road before the tire monitor went off. I had bought the tire minders just before that trip because i had been reading about certain Chinese tires that were in question. I am sold on tire monitors even tho blowouts like that can't be forecast. I had just went thru the screen on the monitor just before the first tire exploded. All pressures and temperatures were very normal when it blew. I had lost a tire the previous year from what I suspect was a slow leak in which a trucker got my attention that I had a flat. I thought that as much as I have towed over the years, I would surely feel a tire going flat. I was WRONG!!!
I replaced all the tires after the failures with new Marathons in Nebraska after the second tire failed.
