General Tire Info Needed

Since I am a new RV owner I probably made the first rookie mistake in my purchase of a 2012 (preowned) Puma Toy Hauler. I did not check the tires carefully. Ok so my 2nd trip was a 4 hour one way trip in 100+ degrees and on the way back I have a blow out on one tire of the camper. I replace it and once home and calling to check prices I start to verify the rest of the tires on my RV and notice that I have a wide variety of aged tires from 2001 to 2011 and the one the blew out was an "ST" 5 ply. So is this a normal tire for a 30' toy hauler or did someone miss match tires to get rid of it? On that note what is your recommendations for tire replacements since I am ready to replace them all to help ensure fewer problems in the near future?

It sounds like the previous owner had a blowout or two and put the cheapest things on he could before he got rid of the trailer. I just got done putting 4 new Maxxis tires on my rig. I had a triple blowout on my last trip. Held on to the originals a bit too long. Maxxis seems to have the best write-ups, though they are not without their horror stories as well. Just not as much as the rest of the tires. A lot of people like the Goodyear Duro's or the Kumho (857??). I'm sure you'll get more responses soon. I like the Maxxis tires so far.

I thought I was wrong once, but I was wrong!
