Sorry they are 16 inch tires. They are Goodyear commercial grade and are in-fact made in the USA. The Goodyear Marathon tires are now made in China but not the G-614 tire. The G-614 is a 14 ply tire.

Tire issue

Very sorry about your incident. I am a 30 + year retiree from the tire business. Most likely the tire company will blame the tire failure on air pressure or puncture problems. It is very important that the destroyed tire and all pieces of it be safely stored in case analysis needs to be done for litigation purposes. Don't let the towing/ storage company lose it. Try to put this behind you and keep on camping.

We bought a 2012 Windjammer in July and took a trip in September and had 2 blowouts. We had the tires checked before the trip and just thought they were bad tires. Someone finally asked why the heck 6 ply tires were on the trailer. Now I am thinking FR just put cheap tires on. After fixing $3000 damage from the blowout and $500 in new 10 ply tires, we are back on the road again. Now trying to determine reasons for a soft, sagging area in the floor.

Disaster with Windjammer 2715 vs

After sitting in hibernation for the past six months, I went to wake up our 2013 Jammer and discovered one of the door side tires was sitting on its rim. All of the tires were down, as to be expected...but the totally flat tire had me concerned. I put them all at 50psi and brought it home. It sat in the warmer temperatures for 2 weeks. Every tire was up to 56 psi except for the one that was flat. That one was down to 42. I brought it to a friend who owns a trailer service center and he checked it over for me. No noticeable leaks. I replaced the junk "Trail Express" class C tire with a Goodyear Marathon class D tire for $110. Wish I could do all of the tires to feel safer, but just can't swing it right now.
