Those Marathon and other ST tires are only rated to 65 mph? I do not wish to drive a rolling obstacle down the road.


Did you know that many trucks are governed to 65 MPH or slower? I have no problem staying below 65.

Those triple axle trailers do a lot of "skidding" on the back two sets of tires. Imagine how much those very rear tires are flexing in a tight turn.Those sidewalls must be feeling some awful pain, being maxed out like that...over and over.


Going down the road, it's rare to have them "skidding" sideways. Turns at speed are rarely that sharp and any flex is almost immediately released as the tire keeps rolling.

Low speed parking lot work, it's really not stressing them very much relative to hitting a pot hole at 70mph.

Jacking them refers to backing the RV into tight spots, and the two or more axles make the sidewalls and..the threads really squirm sideways. On concrete you can often see the black marks and hear them. It can an does make the belts slip. Heavier constructed and larger tires resist the damage better.

I drive 63-64mph because my fuel costs ramp up rapidly after that and I stay in the right lane except for very rare passing. If someone doesn't like it then there are the other lanes.
