You may need to increase the size of your rudder , especially if this problem is with strong cross winds.

This is a problem with some topics, imo, that they descend into the 9th level of screaming and scatter into all directions and do not return to the original question or topic.



My two points are these: There shall be no crying if you drive 70 and all "comfy" with your tv and tt tires correctly inflated and you hit a "road hazard" or a "gator" . Do not come here and complain about so called "china bombs".



Second point: people who tow rv's are in two groups- those that "have" had tires go boom and those that "will" have tires go boom.



Now flame away or keep quiet.


Sorry that I'm off topic but what happens when a tire goes boom at 65 or 70 mph on a double axle ?

AMEN...oh boy. Attention Deficit Disorder is rampant! Cannot remain on topic for the life of them. Actually kind of entertaining in a weird sort of way.

Damage.... to Equipment (yours and maybe others), Time (massive amount of lost time) and sometimes, to Lives. Damage happens.

Get a TST 507 system.

And the OP needs to adjust his hitch set up.

Agreed . just seems some think if you do anything over 55-65 you're being unsafe and that's just not the case . the right lane is for driving and the left lane for passing . if people would follow these rules we'd all be safer .

rating checked . FR tires gone within the first week and no one was talking about going over posted speed limits.

After the Mods close this thread, (I won't be surprised) I hope the OP starts a new thread to tell us how he fixed his problem.......... so we can all learn something.

I've had 2 'ohcrap' episodes on 2 different 5ers that are eerily the same. The first was on the freeway going 70 (I can hear the slowpokes saying that 70 was the problem). I never heard the first tire blow (passenger side rear axle) but saw debris flying everywhere behind me. No problems slowing down and getting off the freeway (just don't jam on the brakes). Then about 50 miles later the front axle passenger tire exploded and I did hear that one. Again, no problems pulling over. Total damage to the 5er was about 5k plus tires.

The second time (different 5er) was on a rural road going the speed limit of 55 (guess I should of been going 40 according to this thread Same exact scenario. Same side, rear tire first then front later. Total damage this time was 8k plus tires. Thank goodness for insurance. Of course the next year the rates went up and we had to change companies

I don't know whether I ran over debris that damaged both tires or that the first blowout damaged the tire in front of it. I don't think speed or air pressure had anything to do with either one. I'm pretty anal about pressures and checking the rig at every stop.

I think being tandem axle actually helps during a blowout as you can stay under control on the other tire in my experience.

And I would love to have a tpms but so far I can't bend my brain around the cost for one that actually works

So that's my story about blowouts. Hope it answers your question.
