JMHO. Well worth the cost to prevent that possibility.

Ok, I got load range D Maxxis 225r15s on the way for our TT. I may get the heavy duty valve stems just for a little extra piece of mind. Now to find some place to mount them...

I replaced 205 C rated tires with 225 E rated Maxxis. They were problem free the six years I ran them. I had steel valve stems.

I have the new tires on our trailer and have gone about 65 miles to Brazos Bend State Park. They seem smooth riding and look great so far
