    Hello Tireman9,
    I'm sending this photo to you for a friend of mine. He owns a 2019 Newmar Essex on a Spartan chassis. The photo below is from the passenger side tag axle tire, 315 80R22.5 XZA. The wear pattern in the photo doesn't go the full circumference but about 180 of the 360 degrees. The tire has 40000 miles on it. The other tag tire doesn't have this wear pattern. He runs 85 psi in the tag tires based on actual coach weight on the tag axle/Michelin tire pressure table. Your assessment and professional opinion would be appreciated. I'm not sure if I created the URL for the photo correctly. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    Hello Roger, you may find this tire thread quite interesting:

    Roger, I know from your blog that you have and favor Tire Traker TT5500. I have narrowed my shopping list to either the TT-5500 or the Eez Tire. It appears from the various reviews that these have similar characteristics (warranty not included) except that the TT display is portrait orientation while the EEZ is landscape. The landscape orientation appears to give the EEZ a larger font display, which to me is a plus. What am I missing? Truly value your opinion.

    Roger - saw that you plan on being at the FMCA Perry convention in 2016. We are having a Safari International pre-rally in Hoboken GA the week prior and I am looking for someone who can weigh our coaches (~35) at our rally. Do you know anyone that I might contact?

    The axle system on RV trailes are designed to be the weakest link. As you well know tires are not static items. That is to say their strength is in the pressure they hold. Therefore putting tires with a larger load capacity than the axle load capacity is a small insurance factor and with the RV trailer axles is prooving to be a much needed factor because of the dynamics of the moving trailer.

    Tireman9, I see you have posted quite a bit on this site and would ask that you weigh in on the thread "Different Tire Question". It is an issue I'm facing with my coach and want to make sure I know all my options.
