You check pressure every 2-4 hrs?? If their losing pressure that fast I'd be changing tires. Just finished a 7500+ trip 7K+ on the trailer with Endurance and never lost a lb.

Sorta like shark attacks.
OMG, the sharks are coming, the sharks are coming!

One bubble out of how many tires?
Oh, the humanity!

No. With a TPMS that alarms on low pressure I don't have to check the pressure. Although with the monitor sitting on the dash I can look whenever I want.

You may go years and thousands of miles and never loose a pound of pressure in a tire. Until that one time in the middle of a long drive you pick up a nail and pressure starts to drop without you knowing it until it is so low it starts to overheat and destroys the tire before you start to see smoke.

"A post like this at the Forest River Forum, probably the same person."

Maybe, maybe not. He/she doesn't have the same user name. I'm keeping a close eye on tire posts on several forums. I've seen a few posts about Endurance failures, which is a bit disappointing, since they're supposed to be the cure for China bombs of the same size. Time will tell.

LOL, nailed it. 400,000 RV's sold yearly with however many being towables and one guy gets a blow out and it's the end of the world for that tire.

therein lies the problem. Finding a 15" LRD let alone LRE LT tire. I have yet to find any. And switching to 16" isn't worth it to me.

Between myself and a couple of neighbors we've logged well over 200K miles with ST tires and no blowouts. Me, only about 50K, but one neighbor has close to 200K towing a big enclosed trailer no issues.

I'll stick to ST's and a TPMS unless a future trailer has 16" tires to start with.

So, will an LT survive clipping the curb better?

I dunno if I'm the only guy that actually, purposely occasionally goes down a curb, or takes it off road where there are sharp rocks and cracks and crevasses.

I did break a belt on my first set of tires, but none since. Maybe I'm just fortunate that my trailer is relatively light?

TPMS, alarm set for 5 psi below set temp. I don't worry about my tires.

Funny thread, like you said how many thousands of Endurance tires have they sold.
