Hard sided pop up trailer tires

Has anyone had any issues with the tires their hard side A-frame came with?

Has anyone replaced them "just because"? If so, what did you buy?

Reading concerns of other RV models' tire issues makes me wonder what hard siders might have experienced? I had my Jayco TT for 6 years & never had an issue with the tires, so was expecting to have same trouble free experience with this brand.

Thanks!

So far I have had no issues with the tires on our A-Frame.
In June, DW and I went to the Grand Canyon, put on about 3,200 miles. Aired up tires to 65 psi before we left home, drove on average 65 mph. Before we left the Canyon, gassed up and checked tires, still at 65 psi. Had no problems at all. I will run these tires till I have to change them. Maybe some other forum members will chime in with their experiences with their tires.

I've been somewhat concerned myself that the stock tires are a little sketchy in comparison to Load Range D. I'm planning a Black Hills trip next summer (about 1800 miles), so may replace them prior to that with something more for distance. In 2014 we are going to go to Burning Man (4100 miles) and definitely will replace them prior to that for my own piece of mind.

One thing I forgot to mention, I have Load Range D tires on my unit, came that way when I picked it up. Others on the forum have said they have C Load tires, is that what yoiu have?
Always have wondered about that.

We have somewhere over 15,000 miles on our original, load range D, tires. I've kept them at 65# and been on some rough roads, and they still look good. I'll change them out next year because I have two new ones anyway, not because they're goners. These will become my spares.

was at the RV parts store today and talked with the GM of the dealership about his thoughts on the tires that were said to fail...he said a few years ago many RV manufacterers tried those particular China tires and because they were poor quality, have changed to other makers. He said they have not seen it as a problem now (as compared to years before)

Glad to hear the tires are holding up well...Hamguy - you two really gave them a good test!
