I have run Samson tires for over 15 years. They are mainly truck tires. You see them on 18 wheelers more than rvs. They are as good a tire as Goodyear or Michelin. Many on this site have experienced tire failures with Goodyear and Michelin RV tires so I wouldn't consider price as a quality factor. The Goodyear tire chart recommends air pressure for tires at speeds below 75 mph. I am sure that Samson tires can maintain the same air pressures for that speed. I have been passed by rvs going well above 75 mph. Speed creates heat, heat damage tires.

2) Inflating a COLD tire to the MAX PSI molded into the tire will result in it being able to carry its maximum rated load. Even if your weight is less than the maximum rated load, this will not damage the tire. Correct


And to all the "cheap tire trolls", why don't you stuff a sock in it so the rest of us can have an intelligent discussion?
Answers in RED above. Hope this is sufficient for you

Now if you or others want more background and detail you can continue

As this is a MH thread and not a TT thread we can sometimes inflate our tires to a pressure that is lower than the sidewall max which may give slightly softer ride but to do so will require a little effort to do correctly as the correct pressure is load dependent.

I have two posts on how you can set the Cold Inflation Pressure
One on I cover in detail what is meant my CIP

The 2nd with more details on the effect of temperature.

This info applies to both good and "crappy" tires
