Upgraded tires

Had our first trip after upgrading tires from C range that came on our 2016 26RLWS to D range Goodyear Endurance. We hadn't been 10 miles and wife asks what I did to the trailer that it tows soooo much better. Huge difference. More stable, tracked better, much smoother over bumps and pavement changes. Very impressed.

I probably should have included that, according to the TPMS, pressure and temp didn't increase as much as the C rated tires did either. More safety margin. We're all about that.

Smart move. I did the same when I bought my trailer last year...new Goodyear Endurance tires before my first trip. 5000 miles later and I've had zero tire issues.

This story is told by many here ... hope it holds true for me ... new Goodyear's go on today ... Factory upgraded my tires on my new camper came with 235 80R 16 instead of 225 75 15 on my last camper which was 800 lbs heavier than the new one ...
