RE: The best upgrade for your TT

I’ll make sure I buy the cheapest tire next time since they’re all the same and it’s a placebo effect. Same goes for my truck tires and shocks. You guys just saved me a bundle of money.

RE: The best upgrade for your TT

The best upgrade is ditching your Chinabomb tires. Chinabombs have a lot of squish and bounce. I tow with a 2500 Silverado and have a 28ft TT with an 8000# gross that came with load range C tires. Even with the 2500 there was some motion in the ocean and was very apparent in town on bumpy roads at 25-30 mph. Upgraded to Goodyear Endurance Load range D and it’s smooth sailing with very little movement on the bumpy roads and the highway is now glass smooth feeling. Handling around corners at speed on the highways is excellent. My wife has a lot more confidence towing now. 5 tires at $825 was money well spent. Discussions are usually about the tow vehicle tires and shocks but the night and day difference on the trailer makes the money well worth it. Not again.. http://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/hand-gestures/facepalm-hand-gesture-smiley-emoticon.gif If it makes YOU "feel better" then run with it. Myself, Have used what every tires I can find which are readily available and never had drivability, stability or blow outs issues.. Perhaps you neglected to periodically add air and have been running the tires under inflated and the new tires the shop filled them for you? Tires naturally lose 1-2 PSI per month.. Highly doubt your tire selection on the trailer made a difference, you can drive for miles with a flat ripped up tire and not even know it is dead.. Always checked air before pulling the camper. Still do.
