I have a 26' toy hauler. I am so tired of replacing tires every 2 years. I keep them covered and always at the max pressure. My rig has 15" rims and I buy tires that are load range E which is more than my rig requires. Every chinese import I have used from no-names to Good Year Marathons form a bubble and seperate the tread. I have heard people using LT tires instead of ST, but I cannot find them in a 15" size. I would have to by all new 16" rims and invert the axles which I do not want to do. Does anybody have a trailer tire that they have had good luck with? I am aware of the speed ratings of ST tires and tow below 65 mph. Any sugestion would be greatly appreciated since I am now shopping for another set.

I never had problems with trailer tires till a month ago, when I lost 2 tires on the same trip. I was driving on the freeway all day at 55-60 mph, and the outside air temperature was in the 90's. The RV dealer said that a lot of people were having the same problem this year, freeway driving when the outside temperature was very hot. He said that in all cases it was Chinese trailer tires, and that they are not able to handle the heat anywhere near as well as the US made tires. I'm considering ordering the US made Goodyear tires on the next change, even though they cost twice as much as the imports I'm now using.

I sprang for Michelin ribs several years ago, filled them with nitrogen, and haven't looked back. Of course my rims are larger than 15"; can't help there. They cost an arm and a leg of course, but in general, IMO, tires are not a good place to economize.
