Thanks Joe. I'm not sure how much of the thread you read through, but the one thing I've been taking notice of is that nearly all the complaints about failures are coming from people with large trailers with 15" tires, like yours. Almost none from 13" tires, and only a few with 14".

We can continue to banter back and forth on this forum about XX brand tire failures, or we can actually try to do something about it.

Use the link above to submit your actual failure information.

Joe - our of curiosity - what was the load range on the tow max tires you had, and what is the GVWR of the trailer?

Man, I"m running towmax for 2 years now and going out on trips once a month at least. No problems so far. I'm checking real close. I'm running
ST235/80R16 if that makes a difference.

An emerging idea has been trailers, who's weight is too close to the the weight range of the tires and, as found on the Internet, under inflation issues.

Also discussed is the wide proliferation of tow max tires in service, creating a high rate of failure. Similar internet searches also find blow outs from other tire brands as well.

I'm not supporting one opinion or another, but started some research to understand if it's rhetoric or real.

I, for one, REALLY appreciate your efforts on this. I've been watching this (and the other one or two related threads that have popped up recently) VERY closely. So please keep it up and know that AT LEAST one person is paying attention and appreciates your efforts.

...snip.
I appreciate your efforts in this area, too.

It may be difficult for you to determine a 'failure rate' for the various brands; failure rate is not the same as a high number of failures found for brands with a high volume of tires on the road.

Check and understand your current TT load to load ratings for the tires.

TT GVWR minus tongue weight, divided by # of tires will give you an approximate load per tire. Compare to load rating for tires. You should be well under that target. If not, then you are at a very high risk

MAX24 ST235/80R16* E/10 ply 3520 @ 80(single) 3080@80(double)

* Nylon Overlay on 15” and 16” sizes

Just looked up my tires. My 33.5RETS weighs in around 11,000 pounds loaded. Take off the 1500 pounds or so tongue weight and I am left with 9500 approximately. At 3,000 pounds per tire on a dual setup that is 6,000 pounds per side and a total of 12,000 max. I should be way under their max. I keep my tires inflated to 80 psi as well. Tuesday before our next trip next week, they are going in to the tire shop. Going to pull all five tires, inspect them and rotate as well. Also have a call in to my Jayco dealer and he is doing some research on the tires. I may have 10,000 miles on them in less than 2 years now so watching closely. Since this is a 2014 unit, going to also check the date code when we get them off. No telling how long they sat in a warehouse somewhere.
