TheKodiak I ended up replacing all five, with some beefy looking Hercules Power ST2 tires. American made tires at an affordable price.

bmc4041 A few years ago I had a blowout that threw a piece of rubber through the floor and into the bathroom. Was close to $4,000 with of repairs.

After that I said screw ST tires and ordered 16” rims and put on the BFG commercial TA’s. The Michelin XPS ribs are probably even better but significantly more $.

Those two tires I mentioned are very commonly used for trailers even though they are not ST tires. I did a fair amount of research. You can’t just put any LT tire on your trailer. Most don’t have the load rating and sidewall stiffness needed.

Same happened to me 3 weeks ago $1900 in damage. Went to Discount Tire and got 5 new GY Endurance tires installed.

Hankook and Maxxis are made in china also.

Many people are going with the Good Year Endurance tire.

You may want to consider 10 ply; thats what i understand is the way to go for trailer/rv tires. Talk to a pro.

CopanoCruisin I am with the others, replace them ALL !!! I am going to take the same advice. I had almost new Maxxis 8008 on my travel trailer when the insurance co totaled it after Hurricane Harvey. We bought a new travel trailer with of course the China bombs, Castle Rocks load range E. We didn't travel for close to a year and now on the way home from our third trip the other day we heard the big KaBoom! Very minimal damage, took off the fender skirt and bent a little aluminum. Only about 600 miles on them since we picked it up new. I am a nut for keeping my pressures to the max and shoot tire temps every time we stop. I will be going back with either the Maxxis or Goodyear Endurances on all of the wheels. .....cC

The Rv will still be exposed to the elements, but the tires would be kept in the garage.
