No way my unit will have 110lbs of air in the tires because it needs it to operate properly.
No way 80 lbs or 95 lbs of air is enough to carry 3500 lbs in a 235 wide tire.
My truck has 275s and only rated for 3450 lbs at 80lbs.
Just because I don't sit in my unit does not make me think that ST tires have better rating then LTs.
I used overloaded and over inflated LT tires by 20% with no issues replacing problematic GY Marathon tires. Every ST GY tire blew within 2 years and that was while using unit 4 months per year.
The LTs lasted over 7 years while Full Timing with more load for 3 of those years.
In addition, when an LT looses air it will still stay together. I experienced 2 flat tires on the rear of my trucks and it was a no event. On one I thought my rear end had failed and only found a flat tire. Must driven 1/4 mile with the 2500lbs pin load in the truck
