Five Hercules 225/75R15 10-ply (load range E) tires installed today, and replaced OEM valve stems with TR-600 high-pressure (100 psi) valve stems. Just in the 5 miles from the tire shop to the storage facility, I could feel a difference in the way the trailer pulled, with less "wallowing" (rocking side-to-side) and a much stiffer ride.

That blow-out on the way to Goshen and the damage that was done to the skirting on the tt made a believer out of me. Feel much better about these tires.

Mike, if you are going to use a tire monitor system, you definitely need the screw in valve stems. I had what you put in and they worked for a year and then started leaking.

Yep, it was at Poor Farmers. I didn't realize you were that close Tim. We're working on the date for next years already

Hadn't planned on a TM system, OC...that may be somewhere down the road, but not right now. But thanks for the "heads up" about the metal screw-in stems if I would go that way.

For the present time, wmtire advised me to up-grade from the "standard" TR-413 valve stems (60-65 max psi) to either the metal ones or a rubber TR-600 that is rated at 100 psi, when moving to the load rated E tires. Since the dealer had the TR-600s in stock at $0.69 each and didn't have the metal ones, I got the high-pressure rubber.

Capt. Mike, I have 16" load range E's on my Wildcat. I came back from Lake Geneva in some heavy head winds @ 70mph and it tracked pretty straight & smooth. Only problem I had was the fuel gauge drop like a rock going into the wind.

Thanks OC you are a good man. I don't care what old Turbs says about you. I appreciate the quick response.
