2500 hd chevy needs new tires at 40,000 which ones best

How long should truck tires last?  I am rotating and checking pressure.  Is their something I'm missing?  Hauling a 39 ft. gooseneck horse trailer with living quarters is under towing weight.  The engine and trans is designed for hauling ,but the springs are not hd could that be the problem?

If you are hauling most of the time, then consider commercial tyres - often denoted by a "C" at the end of the spec. These have a harder tread compound - so will tend to wear less, and thicker sidewall.
Ask at tyre fitters who do trucks most of the time - and use their advice. Prices can be all over the place, with no bearing on quality or longevity. Use your fingers as the best guide - the harder the tread - the longer it will last.
If you expect snow or ice, keep your softer tyres on the rims for winter, and use the harder ones for summer.

I drive a Land Rover and have 3 sets depending on summer, winter or off-road. Keep them under a tarp, and if outdoors - chained together!

Did anyone inspect the shock absorbers? Run the tires at the lower air pressure limit unless you are hauling heavy loads. Have the rear wheel alignment checked--it could have a bent axle housing. Check the rear universal joint and drive line for any damage. Did the truck, when new, have this problem? Is there any strange noise occurring when this happens? Hope some of this helps!

Resetting the tire pressure indicator on a chevy


Typically a tire pressure monitoring system uses an indirect measurement, and only measures the differences between the pressure in all of your tires. It does this by monitoring the speed at which the wheels are rotating. If one of the tires has low pressure, it will have to spin faster than the others, because the tire is partially flat, and the diameter of the tire is smaller.
If you are running different tire pressures in the front and back tires, then it might trigger the light to come on.
This might also be due to uneven tire wear or different size tires on the front and back.
Check the tire wear, and temporarily run equal tire pressure in the front and rear. It might take a few miles for the light to reset, so give it some time.

First try rotating the tires to the rear. Does it go away? If you apply the brakes does it pull to the left? Could be a draging caliper or the slides may be hanging up.

Regular maintenance


If you had the 30,000 mile maintenance done, nothing of any real importance, just oil change, tire rotation, check air filter, check all fluids, tire pressures, etc. 30-60-90 K miles are important.
