Hello all. I am new to the forum and I need some advice. We have a 22 foot Crossroads trailer and we have had 3 blow outs in less than 3000 miles. I keep 50 lbs of pressure in all 4 tires and they appear to have almost no tread wear. Oddly enough, all my blow outs have been on the left side, no problems on the right (the door side). Two of the blow outs occurred with the original tires and one blowout with a replacement, different manufacturer. I know these tires are crap, C load range, and I have 4 new D load range tires on order. But I am still concerned that there is a problem causing blowouts on just the one side. The tires don't have any odd tire wear that would indicate misalignment. Any ideas? Thanks.



Wayne

Is the side that's blowing all the tires your heavy side? I don't think 50# is enough air. Most all the 15 in. tires state 65# on the sidewall.

The 205/15's were 50 # tires I believe. I had them on my past TT. If the tires are not worn indicating an alignment issue, then I would try the load D tires and fill them to max 65#(per manuf specs).

These are 14 inch tires, C load range. 50 lbs max. The side that is blowing out is probably the heavy side, but still not over ratings.

Just my 2 cents,



Check your gauge. I have at least 3 and they read different. Have pitched a few over the years.

Also check the age of the tire.

Thanks Marvin. I installed 4 new D range tires (65 lbs) this past weekend. I will let you know how they do when we go camping in November.
