Tires

Anyone have recommendations for tires for my apex 259bhss. 100 miles on my way home with my brand new unit and I have a blowout. Cheap tires they put on these rigs.

Not sure what size you have but many here will recommend going to Goodyear marathons or maxxis and up one level on load capacity if you can. I went from load range C to load range D. I've have 3 blowouts and one flat from internal belt separation on original tires. They are junk. Also, consider reporting the blowout.

X2 on reporting the blowout to the NHTSB. This is the only way we can get the junk off the roads and just maybe save some lives. Also, X2 on upping the load range ATLEAST one range. Two if possible. It's your life you are betting with.
