Had a blow out

Traveling back from the Grand Canyon had a blow out on the rear tire. Damage was minimal to cracking the mud flap and removing the foam insulation around the wheel well. Can somebody tell me if I need a special kind of foam to replace what was lost and where to get it.

I am sure there is an automotive foam out there, but I use pest resistant greatstuff. I re-did my water drain lines in the rear right bay and I think they are as good as original.

How old were your tires? What brand are they? Just like to know. Thanks and it's never fun to have a blow out!!

Interested in the age and tire brand also and sorry that happened to you but it sounds as if you came out of it in pretty good shape

Tires were cooper tires, put on from the dealer as an incentive to purchase, they only have 10k on them, about 1 1/2 yrs old. I always run equal air. A dealer said it looked like a faulty tire, tread separation. Scary because one year before the same model had a recall for tire separation. I had a lot of time to research while waiting for the truck to arrive.

One additional question, what was your cold PSI in the tires before you started out that day? Low air pressure is the biggest tire killer out there for these rigs.

65 is too low for rear. Placard on my 2940 says 80 rear, 65 front. I run 72 in front and it tracks beautifully.
