Thanks for all of the info! Looks like I'm going to look into the Kuhomos and the maxxiss. I never saw kumho with a "ST" designation?? Should they be "Special Trailer" tires and NOT automotive tires???

Yes, St tires have a stiffer sidewall.

Don't ever recall seeing a post regarding a blowout on Maxxis.

Kumho makes ST along with other types.

You'll be looking for a Kumho Radial 857. They are a metric size tire so a 195R14/70C is the same as a ST 205/75/14 Maxxis
The Kumho is a truck/bus tire in Europe but used here for trailers. 100mph speed rating.

We all like different brands of tires but the best add on for whatever brand you buy is a TPMS.

So I ordered the Maxxis tires today and should have them tomorrow. I'll have them installed in about a week and give the TT a test drive. Thanks all for all of the input!

So removing my old tires for the new ones , I found both axles look like they are bent up in the middle?? I have not jacked them up or done anything to the in the four years we have owned this TT. Also found the tires rubbing on the wheel well on the left side only. Looks like the tires have gotten really hot so glad I didn't have a another blow out from this. I always check my PSI to 50 every trip and also re torque the lugs to 100 ftlbs. Any one seen this
