We always have flats or very low air pressure every week. We took each rim off and had them re-set but only 2 have held. We are thinking of removing the mags and buying plain rims and new tires also. Will you keep your same rims? Thank you....-Susan
Susan I am not having any issues at all with keeping air or actually nitrogen in them as that's what it came with from the factory. In fact since buying it in the fall of 2014 the pressures don't drop more than a few psi for months.
The longest trip we have ever taken with it was about 700 miles over a week and pressures never dropped. I checked them every time we stopped.
I had it parked at a resort campground last year for 4 months and when we packed it up to come home the tires were no more than 4 or 5 psi low.
Being as I'm a refrigeration mechanic and use a lot of nitrogen I just keep a small cylinder with me whenever we use the trailer and adjust pressure with it. And they are tubeless tires.
I have maybe 2000 miles on them but want to change to a 8 or 10 ply tire for better stability and hopefully to prevent blowouts.
I think if I was having issues like you are I would most certainly get better tires and possibly rims as well.
I don't know what these types of rims that are on my trailer cost compared to steel but if I have any doubt what so ever about the rims when I do go to put new tires on then I will put new ones on be it plain white steel or what I have now.
I have a small tandem axle flatdeck I use and it needs tires badly so I will just put the Trail Express tires on it as it never really hauls much weight and I just use it around the city.
Hope I've been able to help you and good luck with your tire problem.
