I have had two tires blow apart and one turn lopsided in the last two trips with my 5ver. All five tires on my 5ver were Carlyle load range D. I run them at 60lbs. I had less than 5000mi on any of them. Aprox 3yrs old. I take 4 or 5 trips a year of about 400-500mi round trip. During the summer to keep my cost down I may leave it on my friends property in Ut. Any advice?
Guess I’ve been lucky, towed around 40,000 miles I figure in the last two years and no problems. Sounds like you are doing everything right. Only thing I can think of is to get the rig weighed and make sure it’s not overloaded. But more likely a bad batch of tires I would think.
If you’re looking for replacements the brand Maxxis have a good reputation.
I’m using TowMaxx, some folks report problems, I’ve had none. I wore out my first set of load “D” and went to load “E”s that have an extra 2 plys and can hold max 80 lbs air. It did seem to improve the ride a bit and they don’t bulge as much.
I usually travel at 60 or a little below the tire on mine I put 80 psi in them that’s whats recommended I have not had a flat or blowout in the three years I’ve had them they are the original tire which are towmax . I’m hopeing to get at least one more season out of them. I plan to upgrade to Maxxis tires when I replace them. I’ve heard good reviews on them.
I usually keep my speed below 65 mph, normally about 60. I have heard that sitting will cause more harm than running down the highway. Mine probably sit more than roll. Anyway I’m going to the E rated tires.
