I have a 2010 30sk. When we were going camping this weekend had a blow out on one of the tires. Just trying to get some info on some different tires for my fifth wheel. Any thoughts?

Not sure what wheel size you have, but I replaced mine with Maxxis and have had good wear with them.

If you have the room between the tires and under the trailer you could go to a 235/85/16 tire which opens up more options. I did that on our PP and went with BFG Commercial LT load range E tires. They were only 1/2" taller than the 235/80/16 tires that came on the trailer. I have already decided if we end up with another Crossroads product I will have to work the deal to include new tires from the get go since Crossroads puts cheap tires on them from the factory and does not seem to want to offer better tires as an upgrade or option for buyers.

Lucky for you the 2010 came with 16" tires our 2009 had 235/75/R15 so we had to change rims as well. We went to a 235/75/R16 so I believe its more about tire quality than size we have not had a problem since changing.Like Keith we put on the BFG Commercial LT and have not had a problem since.You may want to invest in a TPMS now to monitor your tires as well. After our blowout the DW and I spent more time keeping an eye on the trailer than the road. Now we travel with confidence about whats going on back there.

Ditto on the BFG Commercia tires and we have from the start had a TPMS.

I know most people wont believe this but I have not had to add air t0 my tires for two years. It came from Crossroads with nitrogen and has not lost a lb of pressure.

That's what I thought about my last trailer with the Cat's Eye indicator. I just made sure the Eye was closed and took off. After I blew a tire I looked and what I thought were pressure indicators were simply fancy valve stem covers. Checked and they are all low. 4 new tires later I checked every time we left out and still worried about it.



On the new one I added the TPMS and love it. When we are getting ready to leave I turn on the monitor, give it 5 minutes and then see if I need to add air anywhere...

Oh I still check them occasionally' but they never vary. Avoiding curbs helps also.
