Can I Use a Tire With a Bigger Load Rating Than What is Needed for My 2006 Jayco Camper


Thank you for answering my initial question about radial tires for our 2006 Jayco 1007 pop-up camper. Another question for you: While I will most likely buy the Kenda Karrier S-Trail ST145/R12 # AM10130, I was wondering what the difference would be in purchasing the same size Kenda Karrier S-Trail that you offer in Load Range E? I realize that the increased load range does NOT mean that we could go over the 2300 lb. GVWR of our pop-up we tend to travel light anyway, however, I was wondering if, properly inflated, these tires would wear better because they are designed for a heavier load? Thank you!

Most of the wear on tires is from miles that are put on it from traveling and bumps. Even if weight is making a difference, it wouldn't be very noticeable. What is basically boils down to is how well you treat your tires and how nice the roads are that you are driving on.

With that being said, there is no harm in using a higher load rating than the Kenda Karrier S-Trail # AM10130 which is a Load Range D for your 2006 Jayco Pop-Up Camper. The Kenda Karrier S-Trail # AM10140 which has a Load Range E is another great option for you to use on your Jayco Camper.
