Tire blowout

Had that happen to me. Your insurance should cover that. Did damage to under carriage as well including brackets and flooring. If you haven't already inspected that you may want to. I would take it to your dealer and let them handle. You're right it does take longer (mine about a month) but they found additional damage that wasn't spotted at first.
Purchased all new tires because I had 2 blowouts on the same trip. I'll never buy Goodyear Marathon tires again. Tires weren't even a year old. Original equipment and Goodyear would not stand behind the tires. 😡

Sorry this happen to you.
I just replace a section on mine (camping table contact)...ordered from factory through my dealer.
My cost was around 10$ per foot delivered to the dealer in Canada.
Shipping and customs are really a killer for us!

This is a covered peril under most insurance policies, less your comprehensive deductible. When I filed a claim with Progressive, they turned it over to their subrogation department; however, if they are off name tires, the insurance carrier has little recourse short of going after the People’s Republic of China. If they were a Goodyear or Carlisle, etc., they might go after an American company for recovery.

If you have not already considered this, if you traveled very far at all on the one remaining tire on the blow out side, that tire has likely been compromised structurally from the additional weight and should be replaced as a priority. I failed to heed that advice and had a second blow out 2 trips later…

Just last week I had a catastrophic failure of a tire resulting in damage to the side of my 5th wheel trailer too. The brand "Trail America" was the Factory Installed tire. Funny the owner’s manual listed two possible vendors for the factory equipment, Goodyear Marathon and Carlisle. For some reason they jumped the shark to save some money. This resulted in no information on the tire company at all. I tried to call the Forest River factory in OR that built my trailer. No info provided by way of no response to my phone calls.

I was able to identify the importer as JCA Corp. they are located in the NW, Bellevue area I think. BTW when I researched the Goodyear tire, they now show China as county of origin on their ST Marathon trailer tires.


I've posted this incident and my attempts to rectify my challenges in a thread "Trail America" tire blow out.

ALL ST tires with the exception of Maxxis (IMO the only ST tire worth buying) are made in China, Carlisle and Goodyear included. Your insurance carrier may go after an American brand name company like a Goodyear or Carlisle to try and subrogate/collect on your loss.

Tire blowout

Did you save the tires? If so you maybe able to make a clim to the tire manufacture. I had blow of a couple of years ago; steel belts broke on tire. I made a clima to Goodyear. They replaced the tire and covered the 1500.0 damage to my fifth wheel

Yea I've still have the bad one and the others as well. I'm going to let the insurance go after the tire company to work on refunding.
