2012 27DBUD tires

All,
Have any of you had trouble with the tires on your rigs? We have a total of about 500 miles on ours and have had to replace two tires already and the others are showing significant wear! Now one tire was damaged because of a brake issue and the dealer got it warranted. I went to pick up our camper yesterday from having the brakes checked out and the tire replaced. I got about 60 miles down the road and the tire they replaced blew out! I know these tires aren't much but damn! Looking for any help I can get.....

Just off the top of my head, I'd have the break on the tire that blew out checked. It sounds like a dragging break. Even a lite drag will cause significant heat build up in a tire. Best guess.

That's Brake, not Break - doh!
