And what if the tires were underinflated as well?
Our campers may be new when we pick them up, but the tires sure are not.
Not all Chinese tires are garbage, and some tires made in other far east countries are very good, in spite of what some claim.
Our fifth came with Duro tires, made in China, which have a reasonable reputation for holding up. But they were only C-rated tires, when the weight of the camper required D-rated tires to provide the suggested 20% extra load capacity for safety. So we changed them out for new ones.
If not for the load safety factor, I probably would have kept the Duros.
