Florida to Wyoming

I figured I would start a thread chronicling our trip this summer. We are planing to do a large circle around the U.S. Going from Fl. to Tenn, SD, WY, UT, NV, AZ and back to Florida.

Day 1: 7 hours into the trip and almost out of Florida we get a blowout. I change the tire and now I lay hear venting and looking for where I'm going to buy tires tomorrow morning.

Any suggestions on a tire brand would be appreciated. ST225/75r15

Hopefully I.....Nope I'm not going that route. I WILL be posting some great stuff soon.

I thought LT tires were no good for trailers?

Woke up this morning to the sounds of birds chirping. From what I can see this is a nice campground, Suwannee Music Festival Campground $24.65 water and electric. We don't want to drive far to get new tires. From what I can get locally, It looks like I'm going with Carlisle Radial Trail RH tire. My existing tires are D rated and I'm going with 10 ply E rated. It seems like they are the best I can get in the area. $465 installed and balanced seems a fair price. All I can ask for an so the adventure continues.

That's an old wives tale.

I posted on tires on your other thread. Even if they don't last that long that's not a bad price. As many times as I have driven past that campground I never visited. Hope the rest of your trip is uneventful. Look forward to hearing about it.
