Love my trailer's light truck tires!

Have about 1200 miles on my load range E L/T Roadian CT8 HL tries on my 09 Wildcat and love them!

Why do I love them? Because they are rated for 117 mph, cost about $115 apiece, have a ton of thread, and are not China Bombs! These are made in Korea and I've had good experience with other Korean manufacturers.

Most of my 1200 miles has been between 70 and 75mph and tire temps have been within 10 degrees above ambien temperature when checked.

I was surprised to see the snowflake and mud and snow imprint on these tires that were advertised as all season tires. I will probably get a set of these for my pickup truck for next winter.

I had 2 tire blowouts last year and have become very weery of S/T tires and so far I'm all smiles.

Not only peace of mind but also knowing that they will last longer than 5000 miles!

LT tires were one of the first things I put on my Wildcat.

LTs are far better than STs in my opinion.

TonyD - you said your temps were within 10 degrees. Is that measured from the tire with a temp gun, or a sensor on the valve stem? Also, what do your pressures read after a highway run?

Chinese bombs

Yep, left rear tire exploded 40 miles west of Cortez Co. On our way back to Chicago in April. $460 for 4 new tires wasn't bad but the $900 bill from Camping World (that I was glad to pay) to repair all the wiring including propane lines was a pain.

Please report back when those tires have about 15000 miles on them.

How fast do you tow?

Call me old fashioned if you like. I would contend that 70 to 75 mph towing a trailer although easily accomplished is not a great idea.
Just because the tires are rated to 100 plus IMHO. That is too fast
there is simply way too much vehicle rolling down the road with less rearward vision and braking ability to risk ripping the tar off the road.
Our rig is capable of those speeds I'm sure and the brakes will stand it on its nose. I'd just rather not demonstrate those capabilities routinely.
I like the inside of our trailer the way it is.

Don’t miss the most important factor about a tire manufacturer’s speed restriction. It is saying the tire can support 100% of its maximum load capacity at a listed speed restriction. Beyond that it will start degrading rapidly.
