Blown tires.

I found some threads out there where others have went to bigger wheels and a stronger Load Range J type tire. Not sure if this is a viable option. I donít know if axel is bent or not true, but admittedly donít know how to check that. The other side tires operate fine so I think it is fine.

We just finished an 800 mile found trip and the tire went in the last 10 miles. The left rear blew again and wrapped itself around the axel. I can not tell if it is tread separation or what kind of failure.

It seems the slide out side is the issue and I am wondering if it is a weight issue, too low psi, need bigger sturdier wheel/tire?

Any ideas? Thanks
Are you pulling level? The center link can only do so much. Maybe you are overloading the rear tire if you are pulling nose high.

What is the max tire pressure allowed written on the tire, PSI and what is the max load carrying capacity at that max pressure? It should be obvious that it is not normal to have one location always the spot where a tire would fail if it was not overloaded or under inflated or a combination of both. Not being able to run over a scale that would give you each tire load makes you have to guess and we have found guessing is normally inaccurate. One side of the trailer might be much heavier than the other side. Not having a equal load on the axles could then overload one tire position. Not all trailers need to run level, scales prove that out. You try to equal the loads on each axle, and depending on the interior layout, the items stored and carried and the hight of the hitch all play into the weights being moved and carried by the axles/tires.
Some folks just go buy a larger wheel/tire combo and fix the overload issue that way, actually they don't fix the overload, just get a higher capacity tire and then the tire failures stop. The overload is still there just not exposing itself any longer..
