Cedar Creek 34 RLSA Tires

Hi
We have a 2013 Cedar Creek, the trailer came with Master Tracker 235 / 80R/16''E, max air pres is 80 Lbs. I have already have to replace two of the tires. two different tire shops have given me two totally different option, one shop suggested I install a light truck tire instead of trailer tires the same size that came with the trailer. The other tire shop suggested I try a bigger tire, 235/85R16"G Max air pres 110Lbs
The trailer weight in 12,000 dry
I think the bigger tires are the beat option.

Any thoughts,

Thanks,

Pete

Our 2014 CC 34 RLSA came with Goodyear G614 RST - LT235/85 R G.



When I was shopping for a new 5th. wheel and saw that Cedar Creek put the G614 tires on their new units, I was sold. Told me that Cedar Creek valued their customers to put a good tire on their units.

The G's are much better suited for your application. There have been many discussions about tires. Proper inflation is the key. With G's, you will only need about 90 psi for your load. You will not be running at max and it will be easier on the tires. The G's are LT tires. There are other brands but be careful. If you get one with an aggressive tread you will be creating side load issues for your wheels, hubs and axles. Be sure they have a highway rib tread pattern.

I see you also have the 8 bolt wheels as well, when I ordered our trailer they said I couldn't have the bigger axles.
After a lot of complaining and going up the ladder it did me no good.
since I bought this trailer just over a year ago.
I guess CC didn't value their customers last year.

Thanks for your reply,

Cheers,
Pete

I'm confused...the current 34RLSA specs indicate that 6000# axles are used...the GVWR is 14085# with a 2085# pin weight. I think the 6000# axles are available with either a 6 - 5.5" BC or 8 - 6.5 BC which is the difference that you see, not higher axle capacity.

Yep....6K and LRE are standard....The dealer must ordered that RV with the upgraded tires....
I paid $$$$ for the 7K axle and LRG tire upgrade when I ordered my 2014 34RLSA. Also, the spec pin weight is about as "ball park" as the overall height! My dry pin weight before batteries, LPG, and anything loaded in RV was exctly 500lbs over spec. Take anything you read or was told by dealers with a grain of salt!

Sorry, I just looked at my invoice and options, the 7,000# axles and Goodyear tires on my 34 RLSA was an option which I paid $2,320.00 extra. Well worth it.

Interesting...what's the camper's GVWR and CCC with the 7000# axles and LRG tires?

Being curious, I searched on-line inventory of CC 34RLSA and seen a 2013 with 7000# axles and a GVWR of 15441 at Camping World in Mesa, AZ...probably late 2013 production. Funny that the CC web site doesn't indicate that 7000# axles are a available option on the 34RLSA...out of date I guess.
