Manufacturing defects can occur on any tire no matter where it is made or how much it costs. Installing larger, more expensive, and or increasing
the load range rating certainly helps to prevent tire failures, but failures can and will still occur.

Best bet is to be prepared and drive at a reasonable speed.

The failure pattern/rate with ST tires is more than just "Manufacturing defects can occur on any tire no matter where it is made or how much it costs." That is what all of these threads are about.

If you think ST tires are just getting a bad rap because their owners are not taking care of them, you aren't paying attention.

I think 5er_tom is right, keep your tires checked and drive at a reasonable speed, I would just add buy yourself a TPMS that you trust.

Actually the root of the problem may be that RV manufactures factory install tires that just barely meet the RV weight requirements. If all those China Bomb load range C tires were load range D, perhaps we would not be having this discussion.
