I recommend doing some Q&A troubleshooting on why those tires failed. Were they more than 3 years old? Did you travel a lot with them? Was the second failure positioned next to the first tire failure? Do you know how much weight your axles are carrying and which tire positions have the most weight?

I’ll mimic what the trailer industry and NHTSA’s lead question might be. Are your tires under inflated?

Tires about 2 1/2 years old maybe 3500 miles in 2 1/2 years tires blew on opposite sides and axels . Check air before each trip 80psi cold .Don't carry any water in tanks.

So far good luck with Hercules - 4 on the truck and 4 on the trailer. About 15,000 on the truck and 6,000 on the trailer.

Well priced and fairly good national coverage.
