Also looking for a new battery too.
I went to my local shop when I had my bubble but they could only get the Load C tires not the load D which we need.

You need a better tire dealer.

This is just an internet image, but this is how it looked by the time I stopped.


And Discount Tire gave me the new one pumped up to 65 psi. So they believe it too.

The Discount Tire guy laughed when I took it in and asked if they could patch this thing up.

Nope, they check online to order for me. Question is did you get them there? I would like to know if you checked.

Without being able to do a physical examination I can't be 100% certain but because the failure does not appear to have the tell-tale sign of 360 degree mid to upper sidewall circumferential failure, I am inclined to go with Tread or belt separation. I would go with that in your complaint notice to NHTSA.
Many times this type failure can be discovered with a thorough inspection that owners can do themselves.

Tire Order

Just a quick update, I ordered the tires from Jegs and had them put on local place. Even the tire installer, who specializes in trailer / tow vehicle tires, thought they were a good fit for the trailer),So we are ready to go. Thanks again for the suggestion.

Mine came in also. Tires installed at local dealer and they refunded me the cost of the wrong tire they put on, including balance and stem....which was the cost of the two new tires I bought from Jegs. Works for me! They also put metal stems on (no charge) as they said the 8 ply (Load D) tires require the metal stem vs rubber stem.

E trailer has a good selection of tires if you are having them shipped anyway. I've bought from them before and they are shipped quick and generally are priced right.
