Tire Headaches

I bought a brand new '16 264BHW, and the more I'm hearing, I'm REALLY starting to regret it. With less than 1000 miles on it we had a blowout coming back from Ft. Worth to Austin. The tires were aired up to 50psi., and kept the speed to 65. I never realized the speed rating was 50 MPH!!! In Texas, we change tires at 60....

And now, seeing this thread about shackles and bushings... On top of all this, when I pulled the trailer with our '01 F-150, we took a short 30 mile trip, and on returning home, I noticed grease slung onto the wheel. Our service guy said we overheated the brakes and we had to have the bearings repacked. They couldn't find any leaking grease though. Driving home after picking it up from the shop I went and Cat scaled the set-up. Walking around I checked the hubs by hand, and the curbside front hub was cold, by about 50 degrees.

After buying a new 2016 F-150, I started trying to figure why would the one axle hub be so much colder. They tried for an hour and 4 or 5 adjustments to get them working properly. Service guys said to drop it off and they'd look at it. A couple days later got the call it was repaired and ready to pick up. Rep said it was to put together properly by the factory, which was covered by the factory warranty.

Now, I've got 2 burning questions: When they repacked the wheel bearings, why didn't they check the brakes, since that was the supposed cause of the problem?? And B, if there was improper assembly of the axle, shouldn't that also be covered under warranty??

The way I see it the tires are selected to get the trailer from IN to the dealer and home to your house. With the OE provided tires (non-upgraded) anything beyond that is just rolling the dice.

I just repacked my bearings again (do it every fall) and I probably should have done the wet bolt kit while I had it jacked up.

Are they rebuilding the entire trailer or something?

As long as you didn't need it during the summer I guess you are getting free storage. What are they doing that requires them to have it 5 months?
