Dates look good Glenn! I hope you can get some reimbursement for your cracking issues.

So it looks like your tires are just over three years old and can hold 12,350 lbs on front end.

Pictures in post 42 do not appear to be same as tires in post #1. Tires in post #1 are very old or run grossly underinflated.

I'm sure they are the same tires, but the first photos are from the outside of the tire exposed to the sun, whereas the later ones are of the inside of the tire.
If there was a problem in the manufacturing process, that might explain the difference.

You have my word of honor they are the same tires.

There is a member of this board that lives in the area and if you insist I will have him stop over look at the tires and verify they are the same tires.

The tires have never in my ownership been run under inflated, one of the very first things I did on the motor home was install TPMS.

That can be verified by going to this post in my projects thread and looking at the posted date.

Because the more weight on the tire, the more it deflects. With duals you have to account for the inside face of the tires touching each other (which is a bad thing), so they typically are rated for less.

Your word of honor is as good as gold to me. I stand here chastised and apologetic.

Sampson tire has 3 different tires designated GL283A. Mine are part #880202 and are load range H,16 ply rating. Perhaps the subject tires are part #88020G which I believe is a 14 ply rated tire and is not as strong. I am very curious about this because of my tires. Am looking forward to the answer to this.

I believe those part numbers are for 19.5 tires I believe the OP has 22.5 tires
I think he has part #88045 by matching up single and duel pressures

I have the same confusing information on the side of my tire, only 10 PSI less in each case.

This indicates the max pressure is 110 PSI



which in itself is confusing because mike brez posted this which has a different max pressure for the same max load for the same number of side wall and tread steel belts????



else where on my tire I have this


Which is 10 PSI higher than the max load rating pressure.
