Hey guys, I have one of those tire pressure questions for you. I keep 65 PSI in my tires all the time. When I haul my 5th wheel, I am hauling about 15000 pounds and I would guess at 2600 to 3000 on the pin. Should I be adding more air when towing?
I haul a cabover truck camper. Same tires as your rig. They lasted 80,000 miles before they started looking thin tread.Thanks guys. I'm running BF Goodrich Rugged Trail LT245/75R17's on this truck. The max pressure is 80 psi. I think I need to hit the scales and get the actual weights. I think I'll do that this weekend.
Thanks for the info. Was your camper on the truck for all of those 80,000 miles?I haul a cabover truck camper. Same tires as your rig. They lasted 80,000 miles before they started looking thin tread.
So I replaced the tires with the same OEM tires.
And I always run at 80 psi in all six tires.
Wow! I'll be sooo happy if I get that many miles out of my tires. Usually the OEM tires on trucks are only good for 35,000 miles or so. Right now, most of my miles are unloaded. However, I hope to be retired in 2 years and traveling with our 5th wheel camper more.The camper has been on for about 85% of the total miles driven.
We use it extensively and all the time.
