TPMS is a must, first off peace of mind. Second will monitor and alert you if pressure drops. Plus tell you pressure in each of the tires. I alsogot a monitor for our spare tire. The one we use with excellent customer service (we bought direct) Tire Traker TT-500 for out dual axle TT.

https://www.tiretraker.com/proddetail.php?prod=TT500-4 did buy the 5th sensor for the spare.

I'd love to get one of those. How far is the distance from your cab to the tires? We have a TITAN XD Platinum that is giving issues with RF reception even from the back of the truck. Our TT is 37' long and the truck is 20' long from front to back. I Purchased an IBall camera and the pic is hit and miss from the hitch.

They have a range extender if the standard sensors do not reach. Our trailer is 23 foot tongue to back bumper. We have not needed the extended.

When I installed my TPMS (don't recall the brand without going out and looking), I also got the extended antenna and routed the cable and antenna to the rear of the truck and mounted it up under the bed next to the spare - picks up flawlessly on my rig.

I have a TST brand system. Trailer is a 38’ Voltage V 3105 2 axel. We’re towing with a Ford F-350 crew cab long bed. The receiver is on the dash of the F350, and we never lose tire signal. It can take a few minutes for the receiver to pick up all 10 tire monitors, but once it does, we’re solid. No need for for extender.

I agree. If I am not mistaken, these are the only US made st trailer tire.

Sailun tires

I run 235/80/16 Sailuns on my 34RQE Grand Junction. This trailer has GVWR of 15,500. I also run these same tires on my skid steer trailer, I haul up to 11,000 lb equipment on this, I know, not legal but my point is the tires handle the weight easily. These tires almost look the same unloaded or loaded. They are simply AMAZING! Simply go to any tire shop that sells these tires. Roll them out beside any Good Year, Michelin,Dunlop etc. Pick up the Sailun in one arm and one of the other tires in the other. At this point the debate will be over and you will install the Sailuns. They are at least twice the weight. I have had these tires for over 4 years with no issues. I know other contractors who have had them on their equipment trailers for over 60,000 miles with no issues. They are pricey but you get what you pay for. Just my 2 cents.

On a triple-axle V-3970 any E rated truck tire will be sufficient. At max load my tires are carrying 2600 pounds each, about 400 pounds under max for the tire. No way would I go with any trailer tire made in China.
