New tires

Switched out the tires on the trailer yesterday.
Purchased then Goodyear Marathons. Picked those based on reading what seemed to be hundreds of posts here.

Sure hope that marks the end of blowouts.

I did not have a blow out but my tires on my toy hauler wore down to the wear bars in one season of camping. I did the same and are having mine replaced. I got the maxxis tires though because of reading on here also. As soon as the snow drifts start melting away I will get them put on.

I pulled 5 years and 25,000 miles on a set of Marathons without any issues.

Nary a problem.
