I wonder if it's worthwhile for those of us with the tire issues to share our respective DOT codes. When I had my dealer replace my tires, they said that they think there had been a bad batch.
Mine were DOT R2KC 3308; which means they were manufactured in the 33rd week of 2008. (Mid August.) Now my trailer was delivered to my dealer in March of 2010; which means the tires were 18 months old at that point. Then the tires and trailer sat on their lot until the end of October until I took delivery.
So it could have been a bad batch, or it could have been the fact that they were over 2 years old when I got my trailer; and had sat in the sun for at least 5 months.
