Tires

We all can agree that tires start to degrade shortly after they are manufactured.
Did you know that truck tires have a max speed limit of 75 MPH when new?
Ever wonder with age what that limit drops to?

All we can do is faithfully monitor our tires every trip we take. Inspect them and insure they have the proper air pressure.

I saw that on the news tonight... Not a bad subject for some of these DP's that think they can "safely" run 80+ mph down the road because they have a big truck motor... Same as pulling a TT 75mph cause you can.. Most TT tires are rated at 65mph... Not picking on anybody, just saying if you exceed the limits on tires, or anything mechanicle, sooner or later it will bite you....

The real problem is so often it is a innocent by stander that pays the price.

Yes thats very true... Several times a week I have a car run beside my big truck (that is governed of course) , they have never seen a big tire blow out... I have, several times in the last 35 yrs,,, scares the poop out of you .... I'd hate to be back there next to it....

Have a good look at these motor homes and you will find very little if anything that protects the driver or others from meeting the remains of a blown tire up close and personal.

Just don't paint this with a broad brush, most LT tires have much higher speed ratings. Mine are rated for 99 MPH. The news was reporting about tractor-trailers.

I am buying a set of Michelin tires tomorrow and was thinking of going with nitrogen fill. Has anyone have any ideas on this.

Nitrogen is a great marketing ploy. If you fill your tires with air you have over 80% nitrogen already.

I figure if you have a slow leak and the oxygen and carbon dioxide are leaking out because they have smaller molecules you will soon be almost pure nitrogen as you keep topping up. LOL
