Personally, I would see if the tire manufacturer will replace the tire under warranty.

That's great but who would want another set?

Yah, but the OP started he really did not want to spend the money right now.

This gets him through until the cash flow is a bit better.

Yeah, I considered trying to warranty them, but no, I do not want another set of the Blow Maxes. So if the warranty was to replace the tire for the exact same tire, I would pass and say "thanks, but no thanks".

I could spend the money, it's not like I don't have it, and it's not that money is particularly tight, it's just that I don't want to. When you get down to it, I'm pretty cheap, so spending money on stuff like this (even if I technically have it to spend) isn't entirely fun, even though I recognize that it's necessary. So instead of getting the windows in my truck tinted for my birthday, I get to buy new tires for the trailer.

It's life, no big deal, I'll just roll with it. (see what I did there? )

Haven't contacted them (yet?). Will post an update when/if that happens. Life has gotten in the way, and no trips planned, so this project has made it to the back burner for now.

I bought 2013 Eagle in summer 2013. We have been on several trips in 2014 and 2015. I had a blowout of a Towmax that shattered the tire. Put the spare on and made it home. I went to Plaza Tire Service to have all 4 tires replaced. While tech was taking tires off the other side, one of the tires was obviously "taller" than the other tire. Tech was surprised that tire didn't blow too. They installed Summit ST Trailer tires, E range. My rig seems to pull and corner a lot better than it did before.

Replace em all?

Happy (belated?) Birthday Camper Bob. I say just go ahead and treat yourself to tinting your truck windows... No trips planned so let the tires stay on the back burner a little longer bud...

Update: Caught the $100 off deal on Discount Tire Direct on EBay. Placed the order over the weekend, tires are shipping and should be here Thursday. Upgraded to same size tire in 10 ply rated LR E instead of LR D; wheels are good to go on the higher load range. I'll need to figure out if I can put the entire trailer on jacks and take all 4 for simultaneous mounting on the rims or whether I only have the equipment to do one side at a time. I may try to do a wet bolt upgrade at the same time (not sure if budget committee will clear the funds given the recent tire purchase) but I'm still researching.

Hopefully by this time next week I'll be back in business!

Never did contact Jayco about it... I'm just gonna do it right on my own and move on.
