Great tips of saving tires, also a good idea is to make sure the wheels are balanced. Its easy to throw a bearing if they are out of balance.

Great idea on saving one's tires. Its also a good idea to have those wheels balanced especially when a unit is new. It does not take much to throw a bearing is they are out. Its surprising how many wheel weights are added to some wheels to bring them into balance.

Load balance is very important on any trailer. Along with that wheel balance is also so very important. Just had the wheels on our 8289 balanced to include the spare. Two of the wheels took just over 5 ounces the other three wheels took between three and four ounces to balance. Could save the bearings and keep a tire from bouncing around and running too hot. You would think that FR would see to it that the wheels were balanced before installing them on new units.

Advice on tire care

At least on my 2016 W&P the tires are factory filled with nitrogen. That should help some on pressure variances.

Rthrbelsewhere,
Excellent information for anyone, let alone us rookies.
The other side of the coin which has been discussed on RV forums is the size, type and manufacturer of the tires that all of your marbles are actually rolling on.
