Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.


We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

New tires for my RV


What is the best type of tires to use on an RV like my 2012 Dutchmen Denali trailer? I have been online window shopping on Tire Rack and 4wheelonline and their wide selection left me confused. I would like to order a new set of tires for my RV but I am confused on what to get.

I don’t make brand recommendations but I do advise at least load range D. What is the loaded and wet weight of your TT?

This is my opinion - You want to buy tires that are designed for trailers. Don’t be confused or mislead that deeper tread depth is better. Trailers tires have tread rubber that is formulated differently then passenger or truck tires. On certain applications increased tread depth can cause tread squirm, the feeling that you are on ice is one of the ways to describe it. Second make whatever load range you choose matches or exceeds the OE tires. If you decide to go up one load range make sure your wheels are rated to handle that increased carrying capacity. In no uncertain terms would I ever recommend exceeding your wheels capacity by installing tires capable of exceeding the rims capacity. The reason is simple. The sidewall of the tire will state a PSI that if inflated too, can lead to bead area failure.

Also if the rims/wheels can handle the higher rating of the trailer tire I would still use the RMA load and inflation chart to set your air pressures to match the weight requirements of your trailer. This will promote your best tread footprint and lead to your best wear (all things considered such as proper alignment and loading of the trailer).

I saw that The Boto Tyres Radial Tire is one of the best-rated tires available for your RV. I feel that it quites good because I have used it. But there is a small problem, it's a bit expensive. Or you can refer some information in here: www.rvweb.net/best-rv-tires-reviewed/ . Some kinds of tire also good for your rv. My rv tire have bought in that so I know.

I recommend Goodyear Unisteel G614 RST, I love these tires. The tow truck pulled very well, and I felt reassured knowing I had really durable tires on it.
