I feel your pain, Dan! We went through the same episode last summer in Florida running Chinese GY Marathons... Dodged the bullet. Cheers,

Very nice; our old GYMs needed air, so we just had to get the 16" wheels ... and they threw in an EB ... LOL.

Just wondering what air pressure people are using with the new tires.

There is considerable disagreement about air pressure. Some run 80 lbs. in Load Range E tires—that is the maximum cold pressure for those tires. One member's rationale is that is makes the sidewalls stronger and on a trailer that is extra important.

I was running 68 for a while, but I found the tires were wearing as if there were a little too little air in them, so I upped it to 72. Seems fine now.

Some run 65 (max for a Load Range D tire) and some run even less because they want a soft ride. But too low means overheating of the tire and that leads to tire failure. How low is too low? That is not known to me, but if you check the weight for each tire and the tables for that particular tire, you may find out.

I have been running 72 psi in Lucy's Michelin 16's since I got them nearly 40,000 miles ago. It seems to work well. The trailer is still in one piece, and the tires are showing virtually no wear.

I've run 80 in the Michelin 16", but will drop to 72 for a softer ride as we tend to load the trailer lightly, and seldom travel in hot weather.

My concern after the last long trip is the worsening condition of roadways in the country, which are also a major reason for using the Andersen hitch and a rear coil spring Ram 1500 truck.
