RE: 5th wheel tire review

Follow up, just returned from Phoenix AZ put about 850 miles on new bridgestone r500 hd tires. (LT235-85-R16)They rode great I could not tell any differance or ruffness. It gave me great peace of mind not thinking about the Carlisle ST tires blowing out. I sold the Carlisle tires just about paid for my new spare tire. So far Im happy I bought the bridgestone.

RE: 5th wheel tire review

I just looked at the dot code on the Carlisles was 3619 on all 4. so I bought the 5th wheel march of 2020. So the tires were built in August 2019 in China and loaded in a slow boat to America and sold to the previous owner. So the tires were sitting round for about 6.5 months. My new Bridgestones tires are 1 year old before I bought them. I wonder why so long maybe the covid slowed things down.

RE: 5th wheel tire review

I know some say they are better. I only have about 3,000 miles on mine. They were on the used 5th wheel I bought. Seller just put them on to sell unit. I kept the tires.

3042 pounds at 80 PSI, my axle weight is 10,000 # on the scale. This tires are correct for this weight. My 5th wheel weighs 12,000 total ready to camp.

5th wheel tire review

I have been reading on this and other rv forums about replacement 5th wheel tires. I do not want to ever have ST tires again. The size I use is LT235-85-16 E Rated. I found information about the Bridgestone R500HD. I had 5 installed, my weight on the axles is correct for these tires. I had rig weighted when I was going on a trip with all loaded. These are commercial rated tires for work vehicles. Good tread for a trailer tire. I removed the Carlisle tires the trailer came with. Mostly because of there bad failure rate. I have spent too many times on side of interstate changing tires. Yes I have tire pressure monitor system. Anyway I think these tires are worth considering for 5th wheel use. They are poly cord sidewall with steel belts. Reports of them lasting over 100,000 miles. I'm sure they will rot out before I ever were out the tread. I could not find out where they were made before i bought. On side of tire it says made in Japan. The date code was 1120. So the tires are about 1 year old before installed. Dont like that, time will tell. I only have 150 miles on them now. My trailer weight I did not need the all steel that the heavier 5th wheels need. I hope this helped someone looking at 5th wheel tires.
