2018 jayco 10sd tire blowouts

We had two tires blow out on the same day trying to escape this weekend.

Roadside assistance could not find anywhere in the region with our tires! Apparently it is some tiny odd-ball sized tire and now we are in limbo.

Has anyone had issues with the jayco tire and were you able to find a good replacement?

The factory ones on there are ST 145R12

I went 1200 miles to Mouse world quite a few years ago with weenie tires like that on a popup. Blew 3 on the way down. Turned out I was going over 65 back then. Those tires just don't like speeds over 65!

You might have to order them in from somewhere else like an online tire place. Check your available space around the tires and see if you can go up one size. Get a TPMS system. Stay under 65.

Not sure if the Kenda Karrier ST tires come that small. On some of the bigger ones they rate them 80 mph.

Goodyear Endurance don't come that small.

Etrailer has them in load range D, mounted on new wheels for $75 65mph rated Kendas.

If you have space , width and height this one is 81 mph, carries more weight, better tire with rim$100

Made a trip several years ago to Arizona and down to Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico with a popup. After a blowout near Flagstaff and having to wait a day for a tire I got used to carrying an extra tire or two. These smaller tires can be hard to find when you're on the road.

I also have a 2018Jayco 10SD, which I bought last June new(even though it was last year's model), to take on a trip from NC to CO. The tires (on ground and spare) were the same size as yours and were from a company called Greenball. The left side blows out on I 35 in Ft. Worth where I learn that a standard lug wrench will not allow you to remove the nuts because there is not enough clearance on the rim, you have to get a socket with a breaker bar to get them off. This is late on a Sunday evening, so I spend the night in a hotel and go to a tire store first thing Monday morning. Of course, they do not have that size in stock, but are able to get a replacement (made by Carlisle) late that afternoon. I head on out and about halfway between Wichita Falls and Amarillo, the right side Greenball tire blows out. I change that tire on the side of the road putting on the
Greenball spare and I limp on into Amarillo without a spare. Of course nobody in Amarillo carries that size in stock and I learn it will take three days to get a replacement tire. I get the tire I need (also a Carlisle) and finally get to western Colorado four days behind schedule. While I'm camping in Durango, I check locally there for an additional tire (I'm finally catching on!), but they can't get one there before I need to head on to Rocky Mountain NP. While in route from Durango the final Greenball tire blows out (the one that was the original spare) so I change in on the interstate (I'm getting plenty of practice!) and get to Loveland, CO where I wait 3 more days for a replacement from Discount Tire.
The bottom line is that you can get replacement tires in that size but you will have to wait several days for them to be shipped in. The Greenball tires were garbage but all of the Carlisle replacement tires have done well with no trouble on the way back to North Carolina or on a subsequent trip up to West Virginia. Trying to get warranty issues addressed with Greenball has been a nightmare and if you have those tires on your camper and want to hear that sad story, let me know.

Here is my tire thread from Sept. I couldn’t find replacement tires anywhere and ended up ordering two so I’d have an extra from the link in the second post. Probably should have gotten three.
