My factory tires went at the same time. One blewcout causing damage to my RV. Put on the spare and made it to a tire dealer. Out of the remaining three, two were seperating at the tread about to blow. They has 2000 miles on them.

Changed the Superior Power Tow Max stock tires for Good Year Marathons. When I took them off after 1 season 2 had bead failure and one had a bubble inside, No visible failure till you remove them. Forest River, if you treat them fairly, work through your local dealer will pay for part of them if you have a failure.

I never had an issue with my Carlisle tires on my old TT (2005 vintage). Pulled it for 5 years on the same tires. But with my 5er, it was about 2 years. I always kept my tires inflated properly, and I was never overloaded. I even checked the other tires when the first one blew, and they were all good. Same after the second one blew. I crawled home after the third one blew. My 5 hour trip took over 14 hours due to this triple blowout. And probably close to 5K in damage and 4 months or so in the shop. So, you can listen to experience, or trust theory.

So far no problems with the Maxxis I have on there now.

I understand why the other tires blew after the first one did, the increased load on those tires could cause that. Once you have one blow, you would at least need to replace the other tire(s) on that same side.
And to be clear, I'm not arguing with anyone, I'm just wondering why there aren't tire demonstration marches in Elkart and Goshen, IN. If this is such a widespread problem. I guess I will plan on adding tires to my list of things to buy.

Unless the blown tires rim was actually suspended in air, the load on the other tandem remains unchanged. The load is still carried by the blown tire and rim. The only thing I will add is I had roughly 3000 miles on my new 5ers tires and they were fine. However, after setting in the driveway for 2 months this winter 2 of the 3 were bubbled through the beads. My guess is no one is demonstrating because most have figured the cost into the cost of a new camper.

I have a sandpiper 365 saq. I run goodyear G614 tires. They are great tires and can handle the weight of the trailer. The crap tires that came on it were weight wise pushed to the max.
