If you keep them at the max air pressure and rotate them you should get a lot of miles out of them. If they are the cheap china bomb tires you are lucky you have gone 10k miles without any issues. Most of the time it is age and UV light that kills an RV tire.

Sad to say but unless something I don't know about has changed you probably have cheap tires.We have been looking at new trailers and have found two manufactures that will upgrade to Goodyear G614 G Load range tires for $400. That will go into our decision making when it comes time to purchase. Our trailer came with Mission tires that gave up before 5k miles. So we had a new trailer and had to spend another $730 for new tires not 6 month's after we bought it. That does not sit well with me.

You are correct, and this is the last one we buy with crap tires. Our next one will either come with good tires, have them as an option orwe will not buy it.

I had to change all the "china bombs" on my PP, we are looking at a new Mobile Suite, they make a big sales pitch that they put goodyear on their units.....I would never consider any unit with those crap chineese tires, the dealer will be more than willing to change them if you do it before you close the deal, pretty hard to get that done after the paperwork is signed....

Maxxis tires are very well thought of in the RV community and an affordable option to moving up to 16" tires and Goodyear shoes.... Do a search over on RV.net on Maxxis tires.

Cooper now makes a tire for the trailers in this country They are called Power king the STC ST225/75R15 8ly will ost me 399.69 out the door. Nitrogen will run 5.00 more per tire. Sales person says that they will run 10 percent cooler on the highway. After towing in temps of 105 to 110 this summer for six hours at a time this seems to all most make since

Lots of posts on nitrogen. Don't waste your money on it. Air is 78% nitrogen. How to they put pure nitrogen in your tires, do they start out with a vacuum pump to get all the air out?
