80 psi, checked cold every morning I was on the road. Checked with a thermal gun at every stop. Had justed wieght a day before the first blow out, well under the rating for those tires. They had about 5-6,000 miles on them. One year and three days old. Camper gets pulled at least once a month. Parked inside a barn. First blow out about 68 degrees outside around 70 mph (yes I know) had been on the road about an hour. Second blow out cruise on 68 mph (again yes I know) about 85 degrees outside. Everyone can have an opinion on these tires, but mine is I will never have them on a trailer again !!! LT load range E tires will be on it before my next trip. I pull a trailer a lot of miles with my truck (flat bed and stock trailers) Guess how many of those LT tires I have blown out in the last 20 years...NONE !! I don't care to count the number of ST I have blown, let alone everyone else I know with a camper. Yes some people don't take care of them, or drive way too fast in the heat... But some people do take care of them , and still have more problems with them than a LT tires. At one time a new fifth wheel came with LT tires on them. They were the only thing out there with the proper rating to handle the wieght. Now that trailer builders can buy "china bomb" ST tires for cheap thats what they run on them.

Well right now we are around the 6000-6500 mark.We are going to WDW in Oct.which will be about 1900-2000 round trip.So if all things being equal in this case I should expect a blow out somewhere between MD. and FL.Wow talk about a self fulfilling prophecy!!
