Hey Wicked. Why are you fine with the stock Roo tires? Are they not the china bombs you were afraid of? Just curious if they changed them out or not.

I got china bombs with mine but am going to gamble on a few short trips this year around New England. I will be under 3 hours of driving all times. I plan on taking it slow at 60mph.

Vin.

If it were me, I'd make 50 top speed and even then it's a huge gamble.

I have 300 miles on them and they were fine coming home I am doing short trips this year and first Priority is getting rid of the Pirelli's on my truck then TPMS for Roo then next year most likely Goodyear tires. I usually do 60mph sometimes 65 I never go above that

How difficult is it to install TPMS on the TT tires?

Looks pretty simple. This is the kit I will most likely get.

I also have the china bombs on mine some brand called "akuret" traveld over 3,000 on them last year without incident. Properly inflated and trailer within weight limits.

All I can say is enjoy it while you can, it's just a matter of time until one or more will blow and cause major damage.

What are china bombs? What brand are the tires you are talking about. New trailer and you need to replace already?

Tires are a hot topic on here. As for brands, you can basically research whatever brand you want and find good and bad stuff about them. I dont believe any are made in the US. But it is also unreasonable for a new trailer owner to immediately spend $500 plus to replace tires. A TPMS add on system is cheaper and would let you know if a tire was losing pressure.

Agree, but facts are facts, what the factory puts on are junk and are subjected to some terrible conditions on the way to the dealers. I agree you shouldn't have to replace brand new tires on a brand new trailer, but too many have experienced disastrous damage from blowouts to not take the precaution of replacing them immediately.
