I have a 2022 2922 KS and the tires it came with are a brand called Mastertrack. They are ST225 175R/15. 80 PSI. Load rating is Q. Speed Rating is E. Weight Capacity is 2830 per tire. I looked them up and they are very cheap, $64 per tire. Is always worries me when something is so much cheaper than any other comparable product. Anyone have any experience with these tires.

Mastertrack is used on a lot of RVs coming off the assembly line. That said, they don’t have a great reputation. I don’t think I’ve ever read of anyone putting a second set on their camper.

Also FYI you have the speed and load ratings backwards, haha! Q load rating would be for like the crawler that used to transport the space shuttle to the launch pad and speed rating E would be a max speed of 43mph!

This is what my tire shop said about the trailer tires.

Load Range is "E". This means it is 10 ply and using 80 PSI
Speed Rang is "M" which is 81MPH
Load Index is 117, which means each tire can carry 2,833 lbs at 80 PSI

He also says the Mastertrack tires are just like tires that come on cars from the factory. They are adequate but will not last very long.

This year I did almost 5,000 miles with the trailer and next year it will be closer to 10,000 miles. Maybe I should just put really good tires on now

If I were you (which I'm not), I would put on a good spare now. Recommend Maxxis M8008 load range "E". Then in about 2 more years replace the tires on the trailer. The originals should certainly be OK for 4 or 5 years. Mileage makes little difference to trailer tires (unless they are mistreated). What trailer tires suffer from mostly is on-use..... sitting in one spot.

The rubber needs to be "exercised" to keep the rubber viable and avoid sidewall rot. That's why particular attention must be paid to the spare tire, it's the most important tire on the trailer and the most ignored. I can't tell you how many stories that I've heard about people having a blow-out, putting on the spare and it blows out 10-miles down the road, leaving the owner in a pickle.

When you buy new tires, rotate them and put the spare (that's never been used) on the right side of the trailer and put put one of the new ones on the left, the other on the spare. In 6- years, buy all 3 tires new.

Always put the spare on the right side of your TM unless it's a new tire.

Avoid putting "iffy" tire on the left side of the trailer, where your plumbing is. We've had stories of blow-outs not only taking out the pluming but taking out the galley cabinetry all the way to the fridge.

Your 2022 TM should have a plumbing guard on it. That’ll help protect the plumbing in case of a blowout.

THanks both of you. Yest MY TM does have the guard, but I never want a blow out. Safety over $$$ for me.
