I had checked and aired up the tires to 50psi (Max on sidewall) and saw no signs of tread or sidewall problems before the trip. The camper is at the dealer now for body repairs and I replaced all the tires with Hercules Power STR LR "E" tires. This is the first time I have had tire problems on any trailer.
Sorry to hear about your problems. When you say you "saw no signs of tread or sidewall problem
" does that mean you confirmed with a off the ground rotation as seen HERE
or just that most of the tread looked OK and not worn out?
What is your actual individual tire loading and tire size?
DOT serial from the two failed tires?
Did you get any warning from your TPMS
Do you still have the tires and can you provide close-up pictures? I may be able to offer some possible reasons for the failures but need better(closer) pictures of the upper sidewall.
