They are C rated Constancy. No info available online for these except what someone at Lions head the distributor typed up for the warranty admin last week.

Thanks so much for the attachment. Mine look different I'll try to get a picture today.

I also found it quite childish that when I made a complaint about Flagstaff on their Facebook page, they deleted it and then blocked me from the page.

Paul GA,

I have the same wheels and tires, as you, on my TT. With 6K miles and counting, I've not had a problem. I watch the air pressure and keep my cargo as light as possible plus keeping the speed down. So far I have only towed in cooler weather and my next trip (3K RT to Pacific NW) will be the same.

I would spring for larger wheels/tires if there was room but my axles are too close to fit 15 inchers.

Interesting that these same TTs now come with the 15 inch wheels.

To me there are no proven tire upgrades. All I have looked into, have their own share of failures. Even the vaunted Maxxis brand has a documented history of tire failures.

Speed, heat, loading and age must be managed to keep these "China Bombs" from detonating.

Happy Camping

I've been trying to stay happy...
But it's hard.
My fifth went to the dealer in September for a list of repairs from the pdi. I bought the trailer new, a couple weeks before.

I had about a page of repairs to do.

I have been in contact over the winter, and they always said, waiting on parts.

I picked it up today. 3 things were completed, and that's just because no parts were needed for those repairs.

I start the dewinterizing.
Running water into sinks and such.
Go to the outdoor kitchen, run the taps for a bit, then I see water, dripping from the bottom of the trailer.
Start opening hatches and what do I see.

Bunk is flooded. I reattach.
Run the slide in.. It pops off.
Reattach. Run the slide out. It pops off. Yay.
I'm camping this weekend, then back to the dealer!

Check out the sweet cuts the factory made!! Click image for larger version

PaulGA, what are the numbers that you think your tire ratings are not high enough? Take your GVWR - published tongue weight and divide by 4. If the tires are rated less than that then you have a legitimate claim for reimbursement, if not you don't.

your beating a dead horse . no question that they put the minimum allowable tire weight rating they can get away with . mine came with d rated tires not nearly enough for the weight of the TH loaded below max allowable cargo but then you deduct TG and they get by with no margin of safety . I agree with you in that it would cost no more money to just put on good tires rated above the max weight rating and have a bit of safety factored in . the excuse you'll here more then not is it's so people won't over load the units . this is a BS statement . good luck just bite the bullet and pick your wars .
