Given that trailer tires are rated for 65 miles an hour, I tow our 155 between 60-65 mph. At this range of speeds we are passed by almost everyone else including many other people pulling campers.  Am I missing something here?  How fast do you pull your camper?

I do 60 with the 150 and get passed all the time. I read in Trailer life mag about people with 5th wheels doing 70 plus and blowing a tire and tearing up the wheel wells. then the complain about the tires?? I just found out that in Calif if you are towing any trailer w/electric brakes you have to chain up the trailer when there is snow on road. I have a 4x4 tow rig but the chains restrict you to 25mph. Still get passed by people in RV s. GBA!!SVJ

I'm in the 60-65 mph right lane gang as well on speed rated (81 mph) Carlisle trailer tires.

I was also beside a triple axle fifth wheel when he blew a tire passing me,
showering us with fragments.  Just the bang was scary enough.

I hit the shoulder to give him room.  ðŸ˜¡

I rarely go over 65. My range is 60-65 even when the speed limit is 75. 20190208_115706.jpg My fortune!

Trailer tires may be rated at more than 65. And, even those with the default 65 mph rating can be run faster if the rules are followed. If you add 10 psi to the pressure given by the standard load/inflation tables, you're good to 75. And, if you also de-rate the load by 10%, you're good to 85 mph. So, much depends on the actual weight on the tires, and what size/load rating they are. Source: Tire and Rim Association Yearbook.
