I have Duro ST tires on my Salem and so far haven't had any issues.I check them for cracks (so far none) and also for any distortion(also so far none).I hope it stays that way for awhile.

Any idea's ?
Got the same tires on my Sabre. No issues so far after 2 years (except for getting a nail in one of them, but I cannot fault the tire for that.) Check them over before every trip and they don't show any visible signs of problems.

I had three blowouts on my old Jayco and they were Goodyear Marathons. Marathon is a decent tire but you still need to treat 'em right and check them regularly. I did neither and suffered the consequences.
I'll likely swap out the chinese factory tires on my new Wildcat with Marathons again and I'm promising myself that I will maintain them like I maintain my truck tires.

My trailer to me is 16 months old and has a manufacture date of April 2011. I have not checked the date on the tires themselves. Air pressure is checked every trip and visual inspected at gas stops. Always kept them within 2-3 psi as stated on the tires. Keep them covered when not in use. Since I have $300 now invested in two new Load D tires and another $150 in a Load E; Saturday I am replacing the last of the Load C tires with D and will run them. The E will now be my spare.

Another question to kick around.
Are there any issues with running a combonation of radial tires and bias ply tires on the trailer?
After some feedback I will lay out the reason why I ask.
Thanks in advance for any in put.

Yes, they flex and handle different. In very simple terms, the radial will squat, and the bias won't. You bias tire, will carry more of the load, even if it is on a separate axle.

You ideally want all tires to carry the load as equal as possible between them.

On a trailer, it not nearly as big a deal as on a vehicle that needs traction. You combine them on a vehicle and you run the risk of your rear-end passing your front-end.

To answer the OP, if you plan on sticking with ST tires, check out Maxxis. They are probably the best rated tires on the various RV forums. Go to their website for size & load information. If your local tire dealer does not stock them, he can order them from his distributor.
Whatever you decide on, be sure ro have the new ones balanced and install steel valve stems.
Good luck.

Did the people who had blowouts replace both tires on that side? When one tire blows out it leaves double the load on the other one on that side.
