I have always brought Michelin tires on my truck, this time on the advice of my tire man I brought Goodyears for the truck. So far so good, just a coincidence that I have the G614 on the camper. I have the TST 507 on truck and camper

I think you made a wise choice. I did the same on my fifth wheel that is at its gross weight and have not had any tire problems in the last couple of years. We travel about 3000 miles per year. Good choice.

I agree. I went to LT's right away and don't worry about tires now.

Friends have had a few blow this year (factory ST's) and are now interested in my idea. I was initially teased about replacing brand new tires on a brand new trailer... but now everyone is re-thinking their position on the subject.

I've a set of XPS Ribs on my trailer for about 30,000 trouble free miles. My only concern is they might be on the upper end of their weight rating for your trailer...

I put RIB's on my 2008 Everest. I am going to put these on my CC one it is 2 years old. I never had a single problem with the RIB's. Michelin has been my choice of tire for all my vehicles and my kids vehicles. Please don't start the war on tires for this thread. Just stating my preference and the success I have with mine which could be different from others.

Congratulations, you got the best trailer tire made. Unless you run over a road hazard you good for 10 years from the manufacture fate. You won't wear them down.

We were thrilled to have Michelins when they were recalled and we got seven brand new ones installed on our motorhome. Can't beat free.

Tire Minder: there is a trick to setting the system. I believe they fixed it in the newer versions, which, I do NOT have.

The instructions on the older systems are difficult to follow at best! ( like mine).

It may "appear"to the user to be in "monitoring" mode but could be in the "set" mode it looks very similar. Has happened to me twice. The equipment was not defective, in my case, rv owner stupidity ! ( not saying this happened to you )

Each time I had a brain fart, I called the Tire Minder company in Florida.
They re walked me through each reset and stayed until I had them back on the truck and ready to roll.

I, like the poster, previously had a blow out on Power King tires. Set me out of commission for 3 months in repairs: damage $3,200. My out of pocket was $1,200. Unlike the poster, I did NOT have a Tire Minder at that time.

Tire monitoring systems can be confusing. Directions are difficult to follow. Most of us "lay people" need simplicity. My next system will be just that: UNDERSTANDABLE !!

BTW: my tire issue was separation . I had monitored the heck out of them!

Thanks for your concern, I am scaled in at just under 14,000 loaded to go, so I should be under enough to be fine with these tires.
