I have the same issue on my trailer, but with all 4 tires. They are Goodyear Marathons ST225 75 R15. I noticed that the tread on one of them was worn completely out on both inside and outside edges after only 6000 miles, (bent spindle I'm afraid) so I replaced it. While mounting the new tire, I noticed that the old tires were much taller and much more oval shaped than the new one. (just like in your photo) I have another new Marathon as a spare, and am thinking of putting it on the ground and replacing the other two with Maxxis M8008 tires. Does anyone see a problem with mixing the two brands?

i'd stick with one brand and one style. also look at the KUMHO eurometric tires as i posted earlier. we've hauled for 8 to 10 hours straight each day travelling in mid july heat with no issues.

the tire dealer we purchased the set of 5 from when we switched off our original Chineese junk tires which wore inside and outside treads (had our axles checked - cleared for hauling) said they have sold hundreds of them with no issues...
and we also use the Truck Systems Technologies TPS system.

The plys are just breaking down onthe tire. Happens quite often on the oems. As for the seals, oem grease is semi-viscuous and likes to migrats past the seals. Sherk the zerks and just go some good grease.

Just my opinion though.
My guess also.

NOW they are junk... it is a CRUEL world.
Iwannacamp, I wouldn't worry to much Marthrons are good tires I have thousands of mile on mine and they still look new. Had them on a Jayco I had for years and the trail weight about 3000# more, never had a problem. One good thing is that any GY tire will take care of a problem on the road anywhere. Just find the closest dealer. I do admit I have never saw that before, but I'm not going to lose any sleep over my tire choice. Anything is better then Trail Express.....
