Load range E is what the coach came with new. Also the weights listed do not exceed the tires load rating. I've suggested a "G" rated tire to him, but most of them are for trailers only.
[Quote]Had the same problem with my old gas coach. Put 6 tires on had 4 blow outs in less than 5000mi. The problem was I put tires on that had fabric side walls only thing that will live is a tire with steel in the side walls, Michelin or Bridgestone in that size. [Quote]
The sidewalls are not failing. The tread is separating. He has only had one blowout. The rest were ply separation with a vibration and was able to stop before complete failure. He put six new tires on three years ago. Two failed last year and two more this year along with the two replaced last year, but one was due to a puncture from a bolt . I'm not sure what his previous tires were, but they were the same size and load range and he replaced them because it was time and not because of failure.
