Hate to tell you this Calvin, but your established way ain’t workin. If it was there wouldn’t be all these threads complaining about ST tire problems.

Well that's quite true. The published way establishes minimum standards which can always be improved with a little help from vehicle manufacturers and their options or recommendations for added protection with replacement tires. RIVA has helped with their 10% in load capacity reserve recommendation for OEM tires.

Complaints are, in a large part, from disgruntled consumers and highly anecdotal in nature.

The motto, "the right tool for the job" can be shifted to the "right tire for the application". Problem is, most -new- RV trailer owners have a problem when they have to make that decision.

Writing about tires in this format is often difficult because we cannot directly confront those making serious errors. We have to obfuscate.

This coming from a guy who had SEVEN oem tire failures. ( That should make anyone a disgruntled consumer)


CALandLINs seven failures


And from what you have also posted (staying with STs, and just increasing the LR) are still having troubles, though at a slower rate.

Yea, keep right on drinking the kool aid and putting up with failures... At least you can take comfort in the fact that you are doing what you are supposed to do.

I have 6000# GAWR vehicle certified axles. I use ST235/80R16 LRE tires inflated to 80 PSI which provides 520# in load capacity reserves per tire. I replace them every three years.

Ouch...thats gotta' hurt. This is the biggest reason I don't use ST tires on my RV trailers. Hell I couldn't afford them.
I've used LT235/85-16 E tires on several trailers with 6k axles and replace them when they reach 50k-55k miles or 7-8 years which ever comes first.

Anywayz the legalistic sounding opinions were hearing from Cal can be read over and over ad nauseam by searching FastEagle on this website (and other rv websites). Don't feed the troll.


I came back to this post because you know very well that my message isn't personal, yet, as in the past, you chose to make it so and I bit. Sorry to others that I now have to bow out of this discussion as others start clouding my message. I've been doing this for more than 15 years and should have recognized the bait.

Actually the number is over 20. He even admitted it back when he was posting as FastEagle. If I recall, think it was around 23 tires at the time.
