Should I replace them all???

A few days ago, I was towing my Rv home from on site storage. My tires (Power King Towmax STR II), have less than than 500 miles, and were replaced almost three years ago. They're rated for 80 psi, but had 70 during the move. The distance from Point A to B is around 60 miles. Twenty-two miles from home, I had a blowout. So I grabbed the spare and noticed it was flat. I went to the nearest town, only to find out it had a five inch tear on it. At first I though someone took a knife to it, but the the tear was rough, rather than smooth. To make a long story short, I managed to borrow a tire, and made it home.

My question is: Should I replace all of the tires (5)? Or just the two that were bad? The Rv in question is rated around 7500 lbs dry. All the tanks are empty. Minus a few gallons of treated water in the black tank, a couple of fishing poles and roadside tools, including a 1 ton floor jack. Thanks in advance...

Yes. Replace them with quality tires, not the cheap Chinese junk. Use a quality trailer tire like Hankook or Maxxis. Tires are not something to go cheap on.

Most definitely replace all (if you want to save money - you can skip the spare/but you may not have it when you need it).


check these guys out:

I upgraded from 16" wheels/tires to 17.5" wheels tires. While it increased my capacity - I did not increase my cargo, just recognized a huge safety margin increase. You can order online or call them. They are very knowledgeable and customer friendly. My tires came mounted on the wheels with new lug nuts, just had to change them out. They have a great selection of tire brands. USA made tires are getting harder to find/obtain, no matter what the price. BTW my RV is a 14,000 lb fifth wheel.

You may have already replaced by now but, yeah replace all of them, including the spare. As soon as I got our 5th wheel home from the dealer I replaced the BlowMax tires with Maxxis. Four years later I replaced those with the new Carlisle HD. I now have the Carlisles on the boat trailer, 5th wheel, and utility trailer. They are a very good tire. Best deal for them is from WalMart.com. Get them delivered to your nearest store and they will mount them free.
ST (Specialty Trailer) tires should be replaced before 4 years, regardless of mileage. Always keep them inflated to max pressure. A set of tire covers will help protect them from sun/uv damage.

Thanks. I've heard a lot of good things about carlisle, chances are I'll end up going that route. Of course they'll be radials, rather than bias. What if I keep the rv on blocks during storage, with the tires removed. Would that help anything?

Is the storage area covered and dry?

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

Replace them all. Had one blow out on the first leg of my last trip. Blew another one on the last leg. $2k + damage on trailer. Went with Goodyear Endurance trailer tires rated for 85mph.

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

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