I bought the Boar Wheels with Axiom tires 3 years ago after 2 of the China bombs blew and I have been very happy with them. We have a 2016 Montana 3840 RL (16,500 GVWR). About 25,000 miles with almost no wear visible on the tires so far. A couple of observations so far:
1 - I donít think I achieved any increase in fuel mileage with these higher pressure tires
2 - things bounce around a little bit more in the trailer than before, or the roads are getting rougher
3 - we live on a cul-de-sac also and I havenít had issues with the tight turns. The old 16-80ís would almost roll under due to sidewalk flex. These have stiff sidewalls and hold up better but do leave more of a tire mark on the pavement.
4 - last month I broke a leaf spring and with the shackles binding up the tires were less than 1/2Ē apart so keep an eye on this, especially if new tires are bigger. I donít know if the heavier wheels and tires contributed to spring failure or not
5 - braking seems to be diminished since upgrading. I had to up the gain a full point. Brakes have been rebuilt. Donít know if the heavier spinning weight contributes to this.

225 or 245

Which Continental did you go with, 225 or 245?

After a couple trips please update us on how the width and height differences did.

Did you go with the 245 or 225 Continental? With the 245 more width and height. Please update us how that does after a few pulls. Looks great.

I think its all a crap shoot when it comes to RV tires. We live in Arizona and were in Maine when we had a tire go bad. Tread separation. The tires on our 5th wheel RV were Sailun originals from when we bought the RV and this was only our second trip to Maine to see family. Went to a good tire store and they said that most all of their tires were made in China. I was looking for some good Michelin tires like I had on the truck. I ended up with Trailer King, I got 14 ply RV rated tires. But the reviews I read on Sailun and Trailer King were very mixed. 50% of the people said that they had good luck with them and 50% said they sucked and had issues of separation. I also read that it's a matter of weather or not you happen to get a good or bad batch of tires. Guess I got lucky, had them put on and made it home with out incented. I do have a tire pressure monitoring system, as that's what let me know I was losing air. If you don't have one get one, they save your bacon. So if you are getting new tires, good luck.
