On the 2015 models they are no longer a separate line item. The 16" 8-Lug ST-G-rated tires and the #7,000 LB axles are now part of the Cedar Creek Explore package; which I believe is a mandatory option now. This was listed on the order sheet as a line item when I order my unit in Feb and said see brochure for details.

My 36CKTS was built the last week of January 2015 and it came with
West Lake tires.

So I've got a tire question. I have a 2013 36 CKTS and have the Goodyear tires. The max pressure on the tire reads 110 psi. The sticker on the side of the trailer says 110 psi as well. I was talking to a guy at the campground and he said he always runs his tires at max pressure. So I did that all of last year, never had an issue. So this year I took the trailer to the dealership to have the seals done and they said I should run the tires at 85-90 psi. The thinking was if it's at max pressure, there is no room left for the tires to expand on hot days and long trips.

So my question is, who is correct? What is the correct pressure to run at? I don't have the trailer maxed out weight wise, so I don't think I need to run at 110 psi all the time.

The tire companies know more about their tires than some RV dealer. The tire companies take into consideration the thermal expansion when they stamp the cold pressure maximums. I would run @ the 110# the tire company states.

X2

Under inflation is never a good idea.

I don't understand Forest River, Heartland Bighorn still comes with Goodyear LT tires and so does Keystone Montana, at Cedar Creek You can't even get the LT as a option now. Berkshire Hathaway must own the tire factory in China

I think Old Coot is right. The max pressure stamped on the tire is max COLD inflation pressure. On hot days I have seen pressure go up quite a bit (into the 120s). The TST TPMS will let you watch the tire temp and pressure. As long as you don't have a tire heat up past the limit, you will be OK. Low pressure will cause the tires to run hotter and that could cause a problem.

to spawnman, I also have a 36 CKTS w/goodyear tires,thankful for that, myscaled weight is just under 12000# 3000 per tire every thing equal, according to the goodyear load/inflation chart 3042 takes 80# pressure ,I run 90# 3300# to cover any added weight the DW may add, like 200# of dishes she had to have. you can get a chart at www.goodyear.com/rv
