I have been really satisfied with them. That's pretty decent mileage and years to get out of a set of ST's. Now that all could change this year. If I really were a gambling man I could probably get longer out of my current tires. I'm just not much for gambling. New tires is cheaper than repairing the fender wells and side of an RV is my thinking.


This tire talk reminds me of when we first bought the 5er. I came up from a pop up so this was my first big camper and was puzzled why the warranty people kept trying to push the tire warranty on me. I didn't buy it but later learned how sketchy RV tires are and then understood the push. That warranty still doesn't make sense because you would long pay for new tires and repairs after they tack all that into your loan so glad I didn't take it...just couldn't figure out why they would warranty tires.

You are a wise man. All types of RV trailers seem to be prone to tire failure. Most 5er owners I know have had at least one blowout. Most have had many more. You got lucky because your trailer manufacture chose a good tire for your rig. I never snub my nose at success.

I hope you have many years of safe and uneventful travel trails. Enjoying event filled rving is what it should be all about. Right?
