Thank you Tire Minder

30 miles from our destination on a 1500 mile trip out TM started flashing. We watched a tire deflate from 50 psi to 24psi in about 6 miles. That's how long it took to find a pullout on a desert highway. I feel the TM payed for itself in those 6 miles. On examining, we also found another problem with the factory Trail Express tires. One flat and one separating.

So glad to hear about your tm save. Got the tm system in Aug. Had 4 trail express failures on 2 5ers before tm was installed. I bought new GT marathons now. Happy for you.

I had Trail Express on my unit and had one blow out. All changed to GoodYear Marathon. Trail Express seems to be one of the worst tires. Do a search above, lots of issues with those.
