That's very interesting info. Please, tell me which tire experts have given this opinion, especially the LT tire being able to handle the interply shear forces in tandem axle trailer applications. I'd like to see for myself what they have to say about this particular issue that occurs with tandem axle trailer applications.

I'm not sure anyone can say that a nail won't go through a LT tire just as easily as it would a ST tire. I have had several flats with $500 ea tires and it was just as easy to get as the flat I recently had on my ST trailer tire. There are also road hazards such as large chunks of metal that will lay waste to any tire if you don't see it in time.

If you are up for it, take the gamble. I just think any argument against getting a TPMS is incredibly strange. Even cost is something that shouldn't be under consideration. If you can afford a trailer, you can afford to tow it safely or you really can't afford a trailer.

Especially since no man is an island, in other words it's not only your own personal safety and finance at risk. In a blowout, anyone near your vehicle is also at risk of incurring a loss of some kind if you lose control. It's not fair to other road users to "gamble".

The Golden Rule would say that gambling with safety around others isn't what you would want them to do unto you.

I agree with all the pro TPMS statements and as a result just ordered a EEZ 515 system for our TT.
