We know STs are only rated for 65 mph so any faster you are taking your chances

Mine blew at about 45-50mph.

My trail express didn't blow but I had a hunch they were bad. When replaced with GY the beads were rotten and the rubber crumbled. Glad I replaced when I did.

OK last call. Has anyone experienced a significant tire failure of any brand that was NOT an OEM tire? Another way to state this is has anyone had a tire failure of any brand that was installed by your local tire shop?

THere are a bunch of threads about different brand not OEM that had problems, no matter if they were the popular GY, or Maxxis. The last one I read was a GY Marathon that a belt broke. It was like a 1/3 bigger then the other 3 tires. GY did warrenty it. OEM tires are not that easy to replace even during the warranty period. Lionhead is a big supplier. They want you to send the blown tire back to them so they can determine if it was your fault or the tire. Now who is going to do that. Try and find a Trail Express dealer any where in the USA. Any tire can have a problem. Just easier to replace if it is done by a big box tire dealer. You can find GY dealers all over. So the short answer to your question is YES, but less frequent....I know a guy that blows a GY every year going to Goshen, but he hits curbs....

If that is all you want to hear, then YES. My aunt and uncle have an older Forest River Cardinal. It has had a few sets of tires through the years, so I know they are NOT OEM. The last set he bought from LesSchwab. This is a west coast tire dealer, if you haven't heard of them. I am not sure what brand LesSchwab installed, but two years later he blew two tires on one trip.

I know this is only part of the info you want, but it's all I have. And, in conclusion, I believe aftermarket tires blowout too.

He qualified it by saying he hits curbs! No tire will stand up to hitting curbs like this fellow does. If he had solid tires, he'd just bend wheels. I don't see how he keeps from tearing the axles out from under his trailer.
