Tires

I have purchsed a 2007 Cherokee 30F. While checking tire pressure I found I have four different brands of tires with four difference maximun pressures. Does anyone know if this will be a problem or should I purchase four new tires?

While I'm not sure I totally sure I understand what you are talking about, I'll throw this at you. 4 different brands should not be a problem, AS LONG AS they are all the same size and the same load range, AND are all radial or not. If they are different load ranges, sizes, or a mix of bias ply and radials, I would get a matched set. Keep a couple of the others for a spare maybe. If you have a good spare, pick the best one with the proper load range, and buy three to match. Hope this helps with your decision.

It would be better if you posted the tire info from all 4 tires.

Example: ST245/75R/16 D Max press 65 PSI

The first letters are important since you don't want P rated tires AT ALL.
With 4 different max pressures (load ranges) they could be 4 different junk yard tires and could be darn well anything and should be replaced with a good quality trailer tire of the correct size and load range.

Your post tells me that the previous owner(s) have had tire problems and simply bought what they could find at the time. I would strongly suggest you scrap all five of them and buy a quality American made tires and go camping.

If for nothing else a good piece of mind while traveling down the road. I would replace all for a matched set, that is a match for your unit. I also would make sure the tires are not older than one year, newer if possible.

As Lou said, it would be nice to know the individual sizes and load ranges. With that we could tell you which, if any, to keep.

There should be a placard on the curb side front with the original tire size and pressure infi on it.

Just like Forest River to put my camper's placard on the driver's side front.

Thanks to all who replied!

Going to replace all with 10 ply rated Carlyles a bit of overkill to be on the safe side.

Very smart move. You can't put a price on being safe.

I just pictured that trailer looking like the old Toonerville Trolley wobbling down the road with 4 different tires.
