Any HTT Owners with Tire Issues?

Seeing if any HTT owner has had any issues with Tires? I got 2 trips totaling about 3000 miles coming up. The tires are rated to carry about 7000, and we are about 4500 max (have not scaled the new rig yet).

I have a 2013 233S ROO and am now up to almost 7K miles on the factory tires with no issues. I run max pressure (50 psi) before i pull out on any trip and inspect the tires treads and sidewalls as well, have not had any issues.

2014 IKSS; about 6000 miles on tires; no problems EXCEPT the very first year we had a punctured tire while backing into site (small rock from gravel embedded through tread). Think it was an unlucky circumstance and not necessarily tires fault. Had to pivot camper pretty hard to get into spot - must have pivoted right on the stone.

I'd be interested in this as well. I wonder if it's as you suggested, that many of us Roo owners are quite a bit under the max rating of the 4 tires. We've got about 3k miles on ours and are doing well.

Thanks for the research, Choo-choo, we got our Roos at about the same time. I only went northern N.J. To Maryland and back so far.

almost 5,000 miles on my 14 month old Shamrock 183 and no issues
always air them to 50 PSI and keep them covered from sun
check tire temps at every fuel stop
