Tire replacement for Cardinal Front Living

Hi...we love, love, love our Cardinal Front Living. It's a 2015. Any recommendations on upgrading the tires? We've been told the tire/wheels aren't really the best. Thanks!

Your unit probably came with Goodyear Marathon "E" Load Rated tires (made in china for Goodyear), which are not very good. You may want to look into replacing those with the Goodyear Unisteel G614RST which is a "G" Load Rated tire Mfg. in U.S.A. While some folks have good luck with some of the Chinese tires, I personally do not want them due to past failures I have seen and had myself. Michelin and others make good quality trailer tires, the key is to get a good quality tire with the "G" Load Rating. The wheels on your 5er will probably work fine, but the tire installer can check the wheels to verify.
Hope this helps.

Lots of opinions on this topic and here's mine:

If you're running heavier than 16k and traveling a lot, I'd consider an overkill solution.
