Nothing like a blow out at 60+ mph on a rear tire on tow car to ruin a perfectly good day (and take 3.5 hrs to resolve)

Especially when your *#*#* tire monitoring system doesnít acknowledge that anything has happened!!!!! (Thank goodness for a kind soul following me that let me know....)

The second picture shows the other rear tire - was about to have same thing happen there..... Obviously, thereís an issue that needs to be addressed here - alinement issue ???? Appointment set for Wednesday AM....

Also - just to show that the good Lord DOES watch over you - issue occurred 14 miles from a Walmart .... plus they even had two tires in stock.... Thank You Lord!!!

Dang Ernest, that's just plain ugly. What kind of tpms system was it that shows up in the motorhome for the toad?

YIKES! Glad you made it back onto the road. That other tire doesn't look good. What the heck happened to it?

Looks like the rear axle of the toad has some camber in it. Only think I can think of to wear the edge out like that. You might want that checked out.

Looks like an alignment issue causing the inside edges to wear out.

Do you have a repeater for the TPMS? Found out ours didn't pick up the toad very well without it? Skip

I agree with this thought. I recently read from TireMinder that they used to provide the signal booster as an "optional" part that only some would need (for extreme distances between the driver and the wheels furthest back). But, in recent years with all of the increases in BluTooth use, they now changed their recommendation to every TPMS install to use the signal booster because of signal interference.

I do have a signal booster and system has worked great for years - monitors coach and toad....

It was showing temp/pressure on all tires (because I use it to check ALL tires before I hit the road every morning) BUT failed miserably to notify me when tire blew..... Should gave beeped of flashed red or something..... If not, itís a total waste of time/money....

Itís a Tire Minder system..... Used it for years.....
