Maybe I should leave well enough alone. I have weighed my coach on all wheel positions and I am under the tire and axle capacities and have the front compartments completely full.

Yeah, saw that but it has the old, small kitchen, full oven in place of dishwasher etc. No our cup of tea.

Gene those 295's go with the 14,600 lb. front axle. when they went to the 16,000 frt. axle, the tire size went up to the 315's. Which axle do you have? I'm guessing it's the 14.6. If so, it may not hurt to step up, provided there's clearance, but you'll pay more for those larger tires at replacement time.

I have the 14,600 axle. When tires wear out, gives me an excuse to trade Bob! LOL
LOL Likely will let them put the new tires on and see how it works.

Yeah, I know you! I'll be coming through OKC later this summer so we can work a trade at the Cattlemen's.

Looks like they know those new tires will fit...they are monsters-about 12" wide, so you can run with less air and get a softer ride. Will be interesting to see how you like 'em.

From the posts above it seems the front axle weight for the Anthem has gone up. Can anyone tell me if they have increased the front axle on the Aspire. We plan to get a 43 ft Aspire, but not happy with the small 13800 lb front axle. Would like the 14600 lb on a Aspire. Thanks in advance for your help.

I bought a 2013 Anthem. At pickup I noticed small fracturing around the passenger wheel well. Long story short, the 2013 only had one valve on front air bag. Sounds like they are changing back to two air valves on front to resolve the rubbing problem. 125lbs of air pressure in the 315's is what Joyce tells me is needed.

Riscky,
I'd call Spartan to see what they reccommend. 125 seems excessive! Depends on what weight you have up front, but you don't want your tires rock hard and hitting those rough roads if you doan't have to.

Guys - Hope your first Anthem adventure is an awesome one!

Since I will be picking my 44DLQ up soon, your email above peaked my interest. When you have a moment, please let me know if there are any concerns other than making sure the front's (315's) are perfectly straight before leveling? You say "tight"...how tight?

I hope the coach is performing up to your expectations.

Looking forward to hearing from you. Continued safe journeys.

With my 2007 TS Limited the wheels need to be close to straight when you the dump air. But, just a good habit to get yourself into.
