RE: Tires and their pressures

Inflation pressures, they always seem to be a problem and no one likes the recommendations from the vehicle manufacturer. The vehicle manufacturer has the sole responsibility for setting Original Equipment recommended cold inflation pressures. Those pressures are MINIMUM. If the vehicle manufacturer sees a need to provide optional recommended inflation pressures they will insure those options are printed in the vehicle owner’s manual and on the tire and load information placard. This is verbatim from USTMA standards: Inflation pressure recommendations may also be determined based on the tire manufacturer’s specifications, which define the amount of inflation pressure necessary to carry a given load. These inflation pressures may differ from those found on the vehicle tire placard or certification label. However, never use inflation pressures lower than specified by the vehicle tire placard, certification label or owner’s manual. Nor should inflation pressure exceed the maximum pressure molded on the tire sidewall.

RE: Alternatives for Michelin XPS Ribs?

Currently have XPS Ribs on my 5th wheel. Great tire but they are now 7 years old. Tons of tread left but feel 7 years is pushing my luck. Looking to replace but XPS Ribs are costly. Are there cheaper alternatives that are just as reliable? Have had blow outs with factory china bombs. They don't last long here in the hot desert southwest. What about Bridgestone Duravis (not sure which model), or possibly Maxxis? What else? Your trailer's OE tire size was ST225/75R15. Many of the ST tire manufacturers now provide that size with a steel cased LRF. Carlisle is one of them. Carlisle All Steel

RE: Load Range D tire confusion

If you would like to mimic the RVIA 10% load capacity reserves for 4000# axles, the tires would need to provide 2200# ea.
