Had one go flat in the driveway before I left on a trip. Had a hole in the sidewall. Took our first trip and parked the rv for the winter. Next spring pulled rv to the house and three of the four tires had sidewall cracks. Upgraded to load range d from c's. No problems so far and over 5000 miles on them. Went with the tire suggested by Belle Tire

Original tires (Trail Express) had around 2500 - 3000 miles on them when we added up the RV being pulled from Indiana to dealer in Orlando and from Orlando to home in Texas. Went out to the storage where the RV is kept and one tire looked low, ck pressure had 15# in it. Took the tire off and over to discount tire where they broke it down and found the bead crumbling. The RV got four new Maxxes 8008's E range, that's all they had in stock. I run them at 70 psi. We were sure lucky that the trail express didn't blow or come apart on the way home.

I'm buying 4 Maxxis 8008s next week. My last set of Goodyears will be the very last. The TowMax Chinabomb tires that came on my trailer have been better than the Goodyears I had on my last boat trailer.

If I would go with Maxxis what kind should I get? There seem to be many different kinds.

Like was done for decades before a TPMS, I always check my tires before I pull the trailer. When I had my triple blowout, I checked each of the remaining tires before I started off again. I doubt a TPMS would have done anything beyond what I already did.

Before TPMS, we had higher quality tires made in the US of A.
