Tires on a new Crusader 325 res??

In two weeks I take delivery of a Crusader 325 res. What has been the experience with tires on this unit? I'm planning a 9,000 mile trip starting in June and don't need problems. Last year I did 9,000 miles on Maxxis and they are still good to go, except they are 15" rims.

Tell your dealer you want Maxxis tires BEFORE you sign the papers. There is most likley another new trailer with the tires you want.

Good Luck

Congrats on the new 325. We love ours!

I hope you have a great time on your long trip in June! Where are y'all going?

How many miles on your 325 and how about the tires?

Nice trip sounds like fun!

We have been staying pretty close to home so far. We are on our 4th trip and have approx 850 miles on it so far. Not really enough to be able to rate the tires but so far so good. (Knock on wood)

Based on everything I hear about any of the stock tires I'll probably swap them out before we leave for the Goshen rally. That will be a little over 4000 miles round trip.

Sounds like a really nice trip. Let us know when you plan on stopping in Gettysburg (our home resort is Battlefield Resort). If you're a Coast to Coast member, it's 10 points ($10) a night. Reserve early for this one, it's the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. They are expecting over 3 million visitors over the spring, summer and fall. There will be a whole lot going on this year.

We are using the stock tires and seem ok. I haven't noticed any problems in over 3000k miles last summer.

Can you fill me in on the stock tire concerns?

Same here, 1 year and over 2000 miles and no issues. I believe in checking air pressure often and you should be alright.

I wanted to know if anyone had blow outs on the OEM tires. I use a Truck System Technologies TPMS to view the pressure and temps. In 13,000 miles on the old trailer no tire problems, but wanted to see what others had to say about their tires.
