Most Alpines are over tired. I cannot come close to overloading our tires unless we started carrying cement blocks. But there are many under tired coaches out there running H rated tires at max or close to max pressure. One size in particular comes to mind. 235/70R22.5

Very little air loss and that tire is under-inflated. Manufacturers denote a tire is under-inflated to the point of damage when it is at 80% of proper air pressure for a given load.

Hence, "Check your air pressure daily" and every stop.

Dang soapbox.

That photo of the parted out Alpine is crime scene evidence! Those folks should be arrested.
