Tires

Ok we purchased a FR 2910TS last year pulled it probably 5 times total 300 miles. So my question is we are planning on couple longer trips 3 to 5 hour drives this year . Do I replace tires now or run them this year then replace ? What do you guys suggest for replacements ? I understand this is a touchy subject,just thought I would throw it out there to people who have more experience with the China bombs. Thanks

I'd keep what you have. Look for cracking or signs of fatigue. Run them at max pressure and bring a tire gauge to make sure they are properly inflated and are keeping their pressure. A tire pressure monitoring system is a good investment too and can be put on the replacement tires when you get them.

Have over 15,000 miles on mine and all is well. I am replacing them this season though. They look fine but one that got a nail in the side wall. Want them all to match and get the higher speed rating.

From what I have read on this forum. There seems to be 2 kinds of trailer owners that have China booms on there rigs. Ones that have had a blow out and ones that will have a blow out. Read a lot of posts and seen a lot of picture of the aftermath. I have put less than 300 miles on my new 2017 29 RS and am going to risk the drive of about 5 more miles. Saturday morning I'm having all 5 replaced with the Goodyear Endurance. I may live in Las Vegas but I'm not much of a gambler.

Drive real slow for that last 5 more miles and you will be OK.

What year is your 2910TS and how old are the existing tires (look at the date code on the sidewall).

Otherwise, my take on tires for your size and weight are Maxxis (or maybe Goodyear Marathons, but really- I like the Maxxis better).

Here's a longer-winded explanation of tires or camper weights:
