I used a temp gun. Tire pressures were up about 3.5 psi and that was a combination of temperature and increase in altitude. My tire were set to 78 psi out of max 80 and I was comfortable with the temps and pressure I observed.

Speed limits on the interstate is 75mph here. Driving any slower causes all sorts of problems with other drivers too eager to pass.

I decided to get L/T tires when I put brand new ST tires on my camper and had a tire delaminate 10 miles from my home. With ST tires, I drove 65mph in the far right lane so speed wasn't an issue; neither was tire pressure or loading. Not too long afterwards, I blew another ST trailer tire on my sled trailer. It was 25 deg F outside and I was driving 70mph. The tire that hadn't blown was cold so tire temp form excessive speed wasn't an issue. Ironically, both tires blew on the same section of I-25 but one heading S. Bound and the sled tire heading N. Bound.

Hope you can let us know when you are traveling so we can stay clear ! Your chosen speed makes it dangerous for the rest of us. Happy trails.

I live in Colorado and anyone from out of state is no longer welcome here. We have too many out of staters who have almost ruined this state so your comments are welcomed.

TonyD, Some people live in their bubble and don't realize in some parts driving less then 75 will get you run over by the big boys (18 wheelers hauling much more weight then a travel trailer).

Awe cmon man! I'm planning on retiring in or around Manitou Springs. Well my wife isn't going to be happy about it! I will just tell her TonyD said we couldn't.
Besides it may be for the best. She would have my ass doing the incline once a week..
I really think she was trying to kill me for my life insurance but I fooled her and lived. Ha cough cough hack hack

People do die on the incline which is why I avoid strenuous exercise and use my energy concentrating on driving fast 😆

I replaced the Load Range D factory tires about 3 years ago with Carlisle st225/75r15 load range E. They seem to be wearing well as with about 5,000 miles on them they look almost new. Are these grenades?
I wanted to put on light truck tires but couldn't find any in 225/75r15, or any size even close to that, with a load range of E. ?

Tony I just got home from Colorado Springs towing my Cedar Creek at a Max speed of 65mph, No one rearended me or had any trouble passing me. Not everyone there drives 75 just because the posted limit is 75.

I was talking about interstate speed limits not side streets for which 65mph sounds about right.
