Is 55 psi cold normal for these tires? Thanks!

55 is fairly normal look at the sidewall and run close to the max pressure for the tire.

We had a 12' eagle for 19 years and only had 2 flats in all that. I replaced the tires twice with ones from farm and fleet. Heavy duty farm trailer tires and they lasted wonderfully. Also replaced the wheels the second time because after 17 years the originals looked the worse for wear. Now we have an HTT and I'm not looking forward to trying to change these tires.

It was a bit of expense but I bought 3 tire/rim packages from etrailer. I believe there are less expensive sources out there. They are st145r12 10 ply rated mounted on aluminum 5 spoke wheels.

I just bought new wheels/tires for my 96 Eagle 10UD from Eastern Marine. 5.30-12, 6-ply, load range C, 4 on 4 bolt pattern, aluminum wheels selling for $75.00 a piece (plus shipping).

I thought about going with bigger wheels (if for no other reason than I'm a man) but from I could determine, the 4 on 4 bolt pattern pretty much keeps me married to those 5.30-12 tires.

ST145R12 is what I put on mine. They are either 8 or 10 ply radials mounted on 4 on 4 aluminum rims. They look and perform very well.
