Local150, do a search on this site and you will find the research I did a couple years ago. There are good articles quoted and it was unanimous: Bogus as a football bat.
And welcome to the forum!

Just returned from a trip and my first and hopefully last blowout. Had various conversations with a Carlisle Engineer one being tire pressure, per his recommendation their tires should be aired up cold to the pressure stated on the tire regardless of load. Any pressure below that will actually cause the tire to heat up more. I have and will continue to run the carlisle radial trail F at 95 PSI.

While I can't explain it, it doesn't reach high enough on my "gotta know index" to do the research. Maybe this winter while we're snowed in, I'll open that webpage again and it'll then be "long term memory" ??? If you happen to ask Carlisle what it's all about, please share...
Ask Carlisle what?
CRS is a terrible condition!

Carlisle? Who is he? CRS? Is that a military organization? Component Repair Squadron?

In other words, at least to me, not worth the hassles or expense for the minimal benefits achieved. Now if we towed at 200+ MPH, or at 40K ft altitudes.....or in sub zero temperatures and in highly explosive atmospheres..... Otherwise, Nah, not worth it. YMMV
I guess this would be X3 to this
