Paper work is in the TT. I am homebound for now due to surgery. Will let you know as soon as I can.

Just a ballpark will do.

My DW reminded me that the paper work (purchase aggrement, etc.) is in the house...so much for memory.

We paid $1450 including wheel balancing for four. Probably too much for what they didn't do. But then I put much of the blame on the Chinese tires.

I guess it just goes to show us that nothing can be done to prevent a blowout. All we can do is keep them inflated to the correct pressure and avoid road hazards if possible and keep our fingers crossed.

Sorry you had trouble.

I think keeping at the correct speed limit also plays a big factor here.

Good point, I don't worry about that one tho' as I don't pull over 65.

I also believe in watching the speed. This blowout happened at 65 mph at 9 AM just south of Carlsbad, NM in April.

I have seen many a hauler well exceeding 65 when the trailer is on it's way to the dealer. So even if you never exceed 65 doesn't mean the tires never have.

So very true. Delivery from Goshen to Denver adds another 1100 miles plus possible excess speed.

And what if the tires were underinflated as well?
Our campers may be new when we pick them up, but the tires sure are not.

Not all Chinese tires are garbage, and some tires made in other far east countries are very good, in spite of what some claim.

Our fifth came with Duro tires, made in China, which have a reasonable reputation for holding up. But they were only C-rated tires, when the weight of the camper required D-rated tires to provide the suggested 20% extra load capacity for safety. So we changed them out for new ones.
If not for the load safety factor, I probably would have kept the Duros.
