Tire Warning

I went to pick up my 5th wheel from storage to prep it for a trip and found that the spare tire had self destructed. I recently replaced all the other tires with Goodyear Endurance ST225/75 R15E, but decided to keep the original Castle Rock spare that came with the trailer as my spare. It has 0 miles on it, has never touched the asphalt. The reason that I replaced the other Castle Rocks was because we are going to be travelling this summer and I didn't trust the original tires, even though they only have about 2000 miles on them. My wife thought I was just being paranoid and wasn't too happy when I spent $500 on new tires to replace new tires, but she sees my point now

Wow. Never seen a spare explode like that. That’s scary. I know I’m gambling with my original tires but if I make it through this year I plan to replace mine also.

Yeah, I've had a few trailer tires blow out but never had one just come apart like that without ever touching the ground before. Glad it was never driven on or that could have been dangerous and expensive!

Yikes, but super lucky it just took out itself and not a slide-out or worse when it decided to blow. Now I'm more anxious than ever to get the new Endurance installed Monday @ 1pm. Re booked installation Friday and today due to rain.
