Tire blowout- which TWO to replace?

I'm on the road and blew a tire today. Praise God for AAA. The spare does not match the other 3. First, is this a problem? I'm thinking of replacing two right now? Which two, same side or one on each side, or am I making a mistake? ST205/75 - 14, I think c rated.

Replace them all, go up a load range.

X2 with BBQguy. Replace them all and make sure the new shoes are no more than 6 months old [code on the tire sidewall]. Definitely go up another load range.

Always same side. When one blew, the other took the additional weight.

Replace all of them. Do NOT take another chance with the Chinese BOMBs that RV manufacturers put on the RV's.
New tires should be on the top of your replacement list.

X2. Unless you can afford to replace all 4 which is preferred if the tire actually blew as opposed to road hazard.

I agree with changing the two tires on the side you had the blow-out. Upgrading to a load range E is a good suggestion but easier said than done. Hankook radial A08, Kendall and kumho 857 are out there. The Maxxis UE-168(N) Bravo Series Tires are gaining popularity for this application. If clearance is an issue be careful what you buy. Most of the above are metric sized and a 195R14 is equal in size to an ST205.

Trailer or tow vehicle . Let's be clear before we give this guy a bunch of bad advice. TV side to side have to be a match. TT best if all match but I concur that the surviving tire on same side probably took a lot of abuse.

I asked TV vs TT because my AAA lady says my basic service does no include TT unless I pay more. Hell that reminds me. Gotta pay that renewal to AAA before end of moth. Thanks

OP stated the tire size as STxxxxx. I believe most of us recognize that as a trailer tire.

I went with the Hankook RA08s, you will prob have to order online and the 195R14 is the same phyical size at ST205, it also carries about 300# more weight, is a true 8 ply tire rated to 99mph; I paid $500 for 4 of them shipped to my house.
