Tire Replacement for My 2020 Rockwood Freedom Popup Camper


I recently bought a 2020 Rockwood Freedom Tent Trailer. It came stock with ST145/R12 LH-001 Ridgeway Sport Tires and rims. I would like upgrade my tires for worry free highway travel at speeds of approx up to 75mph. The max weight of the dry camper with cargo is 2290lbs. Can you recommend a tire, or tire/rim combo to meet my needs?


Expert Reply:

The Kenda Karrier S-Trail ST145/R12 Radial Trailer Tire part # AM10140 is the closest tire in that size that we offer. It's speed rating is 65 MPH. That is the highest speed rating on this size tire I have been able to find. I really like these because of the increased weight capacity of 1,520 lbs. for the total of 3,040 lbs.

The other option is the Kenda Karrier S-Trail ST145/R12 Radial Trailer Tire part # AM10130 with the same speed rating and a 1,220 lbs per tire capacity for a total of 2,440 lbs. Since this is so close to your weight I recommend the heavier duty tire to prevent heat build up on the highway but both will get it done for you. The heavier duty tire will simply hold up better for you.
