Okay Good for you Forest River & Rockwood

So .... I was excited today to have my new Goodyear Endurance installed .... go ahead I know it's coming and I deserve it Got them on sale 2 weeks ago $100 off and $60 rebate .... Local tire store I use for Oil and tires said bring them down we will balance move TST sensors and install for $20 a tire Great!! Phil the tech says lets get this done ... Ah hey Frank these are ST235 80R 16 and you bought ST225 75R 15 .... WAIT WHAT??? my 5ver I just sold had ST 225 75R 15 and it was 4 feet longer and 800 lbs heavier ... Well good for you Rockwood/Forest for upgrading my tires from load of 2840 to 3420 .... it is true what they say about "assume" ... I am happy with the upgrade and the story has a happy ending ... my next door neighbor Mike just to delivery on a 2020 Open Range 5ver ... guess what tires he has on it yep Castle Rocks he gave me what I paid for the Goodyears that he was going to order anyway .... the new bigger Goodyears are on the way .... Not my first won't be my last but another lesson learned ... Please feel free to comment have to laugh a little I am

This is not totally unheard of. My BIL inflated the tires on his new 5th wheel to the same pressure as he had always inflated his old TT tires. After a tire failure, I pointed out to him that the heavier 5th wheel had higher pressure tires!

Thanks RJD ... hope to hear from some of the members getting new campers and if Forest River is moving up load range on other units .... many move-up in load when they change tires ....

Alone Hell. There are at least three of us and my advantage is that I have made ALMOST all of the NON-FATAL mistakes already and I'm ready to stop that stuff now.

Goodyear Endurance

When he just mounted my new 225 75 15 tires on my TT, (an upgrade from 205's) my Firestone dealer told me he had a heck of a time locating them. They were "sold out everywhere"! Guess that's due to (1) the lousy tires the manufacturers are now using and (2) the publicity from this and other RV forums. Anyway, glad you got the right tires finally. Mine are on the trailer and calling me for an trip to try them out.
