Front tires can kill

If you haven't seen this video watch it. Will You Survive the Worst RV Tire Blowout Disaster? - RV Life

I think/hope I have the front tire wheel inserts that prevent a tire failure from causing this loss of control. At least I paid for them when I bought the rig. Here is the link to what they are. http://www.tyron-usa.com/

No affiliation, but a a friend-of-a-friend had a similar front tire failure, and total loss of steering. Not a roll over but nasty on the I-5 at the Grapevine (Southern California) and crossed the median into on coming traffic at 60MPH and no one got killed. The RV was destroyed,

I think they're a dealer item, but I bet a tire store that deals with trucks can get them.
