There are DEFINITELY a TON of posts all over the place about tires and the proverbial "China Bombs" everyone likes to post about. On our first ROO I kept the stock tires and right at the 3.75 going into 4th year mark our fist issue appeared. Was fortunate enough to catch it at a Rest Stop where one tire had a huge bubble on the tread surface (not the sidewall) and I spare tired myself the last 20 minutes of driving to our campground and replaced all 4. At that time the local deal (shout out for Smith Family Tire in Arden, NC) was SUPER helpful and got "Towstar" tires which were wonderful the three years we drove them until we traded our old trailer for our current one.
The new trailer at less than a year with Castle Rock brand I was lucky enough once again to catch this in the driveway at home!
EEK! That scared the crap out of me for sure! THEN I started calling around town and checking on-line for Goodyear Endurance tires… almost EVERYONE said the same thing… “National backorder, nobody has them…” but lo and behold, the wonderful Wally World came through AGAIN!... Through their website and a partner “Powerseller” named ecustomhitch I found a two pack of just what I needed for $224….. bought 2 of them on a late Saturday and waited for shop to open on Monday to call and make sure they had them, had the tires on my front door step by Thursday… HOLY COW!!
These are GREAT looking tires with a super date code and Load Range D just like I needed, call me ONE HAPPY CAMPER! ;-)
