Tire replacements

Hello to everyone, and hope your traveling this summer is all good.
We are about to replace our tires on our TT, they are
St 225/75R15, and the unit weights about 6700 dry. We are somewhat confused about the different kinds and prices.

We are looking for suggestions on what everyone is happy with? And what size sidewall is best?

Thanks so much as always

Tom and Kathy

First you need loaded weight, dry means nothing. List the gross vehicle weight and someone can advise you. Or list the model tt you have.

The RV mfgr. should have put adequate load range tires on the rig (although there's been a few that haven't). Even if you don't get weighed to make sure, try to find a tire in the same size that's one range higher. I suspect you have a load range C or D tire, so go with a load range D or E tire.

You may have some choices with the new Goodyear Endurance tire. Maxxis may not be available anymore but they have a better reputation than many other Chinese-made tires, as do Sailuns although I'm not sure they have your size unless you go to a 16" wheel if you have room. Search here or on other RV forums for tires and you'll have reading for a month.

Late to the game....but, go with a tire that is load rated high and more important speed rated high. I opted for a Contentiental tire after years and years of "trailer tires" going bad. My Continental tires are on the ninth year with a ton of tread and no problems.
Time for me to get new tires too....guess what I'll go with??? Worth every penny, and they were a LOT of pennies.

JMHO
