Well it happened

Had a blow out on right front tire. Travelling 55 mph tire psi around 85 and temp indicated 95 degrees. 3 year old tire 8/32 of thread depth no indication of any kind of problem at all. Tire minder did quickly alert and showed 0psi. I guess I did get lucky and suffered no damage other then to tire.

What brand tire do you have? We have factory installed Trailer Kings on our 2015 5er. Trying to decide if I should keep them for our trip to Denali NP next year or replace them before the trip.

Glad you didn't have any damage. What brand of tire pressure monitor do you have?

Exactly why I spent several hundred bucks on my Tireminder system. It just paid for itself..My parents had a blow out last year near Richmond with no monitoring system. Had Good Sams roadside change it out and ten miles later, the other side blew out....$7500 worth of damage...the system pays for itself!!!

On the 2012 Cougar RES 327, I would go with good LT truck tires, as they will be way under loaded for that rig. For the 2015 3402 Montana, go with either the S637 Sailuns or the Goodyear G614, or there are a few other G range tires available that will work. On both rigs, get rid of the E range ST tires, and you will have a much safer rig, and will likely never have a tire failure that will do major damage. We went through 5 of the Marathons, never had a blowout, caught them all before total failure, then decided to get the Goodyear G614. Get to see much more scenery, because I'm not constantly watching the mirrors for tire debris flying from the rig.

Pull off the right rear tire before it blows. Remember it was over loaded holding up the right side weight all by itself. I came across more than a few rvers who had a tire blown or flat and said they just had the other one on that side go a short time before. If it was me, I would be replacing all of them at this point just to be sure due to age. Seen it on the loaded 18 wheelers also.

Last December I bought a new 5er with TK 235/80/R16 LR E tires. After research I believe they are probably the best of the bad. With just 4500 miles on them I had them replaced with Carlisle of the same size. I have only heard of two failures with those although sure there are more.

You make a valid point about replacing the other one, but since i have only two of the original tires left i should just replace them as well.
