Our 08 Flagstaff had around 2,000 miles on it when we had the blowout. Pressure was checked at gas fill up about 50 miles back and never hit anything, traveling between 50-55 mph on US 65 north about 20 miles north of Springfield, MO.

I just replaced the tires on my toy hauler. Tires had less than 2000 miles and two of the were separated. I am very lucky I didn't have a major blowout.

Just bit the bullet with Good Year. (4) LT245/70R17 Wrangler SR-A LR E for $970.98. Lifetime balance, road hazard, valve stems & tire disposal. Now tomorrow for the trailer. The Marathons are all date coded 5112, so they are just over 4 months old.

Looks like old Turbs will have to drink water or coffee at Goshen, sure won't be able to afford Bud Black Crown after tomorrow.

New trailer tires installed. Now, we have to figure out where to get the $15 for a 12 pk of Bud Black Crown for Turbs, Amy, RVChick & Kenny. Maybe sell some awning brackets or the set of pvc poles?

I know that road well. One reason I changed my brand of trailer tires on my boat. Went to Greenbal,, published 75mph rating. It is not possible on those mountains to keep speed below 65mph going down and then have enough juice to climb the other side.

See so many blow outs on the drive to Table Rock.

Mountains on US Hwy 65 in Missouri? Hills maybe, but haven't seen any mountains.
