Tires are constancy, china made.
Spare is up front under the propain tanks, i cauked the seams and painted it black so it doesnt rust like all those steel white wheels do.
Just carry a 3/4 or 19mm deep socket and a breaker bar. If you use a drill to put down the stabilizer jacks the same socket can be used for them.

Max speed for camper tires is 65mph. Tires should be replaced every 3 years or 5,000-10,000 miles, no matter what they look like.

Wow i didnt know they should be replaced in 3 yrs! I guess if we go with a good make then it can be treated like a car tire?
I dont really go over 65mph either.

I'm an idiot. I knew that and totally forgot!

Thanks for the info. What jack though and lift points? Under the axle? Hydraulic?

Thanks. That would be my max anyway. Even in a 75 zone. I was hoping they weren't rated for 55.

I wonder if wheels can take E rated pressures to get speed higher on flat perfect highways?

I'm kind of surprised that the Apex came with 14's for tires. Our Starcraft had 15's which was nice, especially regarding clearance. Any idea why they chose a smaller tire?

Prolly cause the camper is lower and the axle is on the top side of the leaf spring.


Umptysquat, the jacks are on the corners under camper, Manuel scissor style.

I thought those were only stabilizing and not literally weight bearing?

Ya only stabilizing jacks. The socket is the same size and the wheel nuts.
