I have completely goofed my posts. All day I have been thought of what to say. I was suppose to start with "My tire got tired and retired".

"LOL" - Your version is funnier and more accessible than television commercial running in some markets, similar line ....

Seriously though, "Thank You" for detailed information and excellent pictures. Just coming up on two seasons, we have the same concerns on our minds. While we have been sorta low mileage, that doesn't affect the effects of time and seasons.

Best of course, you got through it safely and with no damage.

Shoot me a message with when you're at Fort Wilderness. We get there in a week or so.

I picked up the new spare today. I also retrieved the blown tire as well. Once we get home and settled I will follow up with more info and pictures of the suspect tire. I did speak with the tire guy today. He said it looked like the tire took a hard impact which broke the belts. We did have some rough road patches on I-75 S Friday. Ependydad, we head to Ft Wilderness tomorrow. Once we are there I will PM you out loop info and my contact info.

If the roads were so rough, why didn't your tow vehicle tires blow?

I'm of the opinion that all ST tires except Maxxis are dangerous.

We opted for upgrading our 5th wheel 15" STs to 16" LT tires. Limited budget and reviews led us to using a Korean LT tire: Roadian CT8 HL The tire in 16" size has slightly better load capacity than our 15 STs.

We have almost 10k miles on them this summer and are 100% satisfied with them. I like them so much I will purchase these to replace my Michelin LT tires on my F350 when they wear out.
