From what I have heard and read they are a ok tire.. not Michelens or Goodyears but ok.. Only reason I checked on them is that they were new on the front of our coach when we bought it 3 years and 17,000 miles ago.. I have had no problem with them in heat or cold and show no signs of wear. I probably would go with Goodyear next time, if there is a next time but since they were already on the coach I'll run them.

Have any of you four guys been able to find inflation tables from Samson?

I have 4 on the drive axle on my Sea Breeze. I have no complaints in 16,000 miles. When the Cooper Roadmasters on my front wear out, I'll replace them with Samsons.

There was one gentleman who posted a few months back that he experienced sidewall cracking on his fairly new Samsons. I guess they're doing too good a job of copying Michelins! He's the only one I've ever heard of with that experience, and apparently he got a satisfactory warranty adjustment.
Here, I found his thread on the subject.

Samson told me they do not produce air/weight tables.
Have 6 on my 40' Ventana.
Ride is smooth with good traction in the wet.

That's because the charts are published by the Tire and Rim Manufacturers Association (TRMA). There is only one chart, the manufacturers just stick their name at the top and publish them.

I have 6 of them on my Hurricane. no problems and they are load range H rated. They are a lot more tire than what I need. I run them 5 to 10 lbs above what the coach Mfgr calls the minimun. A lot of truckers use them. They are good for steer as well as Drive wheels.
There is no chart for them.

There were 6 on Mona when I bought her, and they are 4 years old. I put 3500 miles on them, and no issues. They are wearing straight, show no cracking, and I would buy them again! I also had them on the steer of my last MH and had no issues with them either! Rail!

After my Goodyears did the rivering on the rear I changed all 6 to samsun - I think they ride and wear better than the Goodyears - very pleased with the purchase
