RE: 5th wheel tires

I am replacing mine this year, my axle is slightly off as it burned 2 of the tires off, but i did take 7 years for it to happen. Called our largest axle place here and to re align it its the cost of a new axle. I am not going to bother fixing it. The way it wears the tires down, by the time they are worn down its time to replace the tires anyways.

RE: 5th wheel tires

My 5th is similar weight and my research came up with Carlisle or GY Endurance. Weight wise check your rims and if they are good for 80psi you should be good with E rated at about 2800# each. Mine stock came with D rated 2580 each stock which is cutting it a bit close IMO. The E rated also have a higher speed rating which was nice. Not that I really go over 65 but it's nice to know I'm not right up against the rating. How do you know how much weight your rim can carry so i know if i can upgrade my 15" rim to E load?

RE: only 1 of my 4 tires is worn off on the inside

Actually still has a good bend in it, shackles look good leafs look good. I called a place 450 to re-align the axle . The tires are old and will need replacing next year, so i will just drive as is for this summer.

RE: only 1 of my 4 tires is worn off on the inside

well i went out and started to do the bearings on the other side of the 5th wheel, and the the other tire not as bad but yet shows some wear on the inside, bearings all look good. Looks like i have an axle problem after all.

RE: only 1 of my 4 tires is worn off on the inside

Take a close look at the tire to make sure it is very round and flat across the tread. MAXXIS are good but not perfect. I have had tread separation. Also check the springs have a nice arch to them. Mine were flat and sagging bad enough at one point to throw the alignment off. Thanks will do, i have my 5th wheel at a storage place so next time i go out will look over everything like that too.

I have maxxis tires and they have been amazing up to this point.

i have my 99 27ft 5th wheel , went to go start repacking wheel bearings and noticed the right rear tire on the inside is totally worn off. Not sure when this started. Could a loose wheel bearing cause this? Seem a little loose when i was checking it.
