Do have torsion/rubber ride suspension?? Is the trailer perfectly level when hooked up, loaded, and ready to travel?? Most likely you are nose high. You are overloading the rear axle running nose high. Even an inch out of level will cause one or the other axle to be overloaded.

What tires......brand/size?
What pressure are you running in tires?
What are the axle weights.......would be best to weigh each axle to see what they are carrying..not just the total load.

I too would suspect overloading on rear axle/tires.......coupled with under inflated for load, scrubbing tires (rear set gets a lot of twisting/scrubbing when doing tight turns).

the rear axle usually gets more abuse, when turning its in a serious bind. Are you nose high? will

If the tires are made in China, that is more likely also. Why not weigh each axle? As said, likely you are running nose high putting excess load on rear tires.

Go buy some 16" LT tires. Michelin XPS Rib specifically. You won't have any more issues even if you do tow nose high.

I would suspect the trailer is nose-high.

happened to me too, I just went down to the tire store and told my friend I was tired of having blow outs, so he put some real heavy duty over sized tires on the TT and haven't had any blow outs since. those tires in the rear of your TT are taking all the beating or abuse and need to be upgraded.

Suspect you're nose high, too. Purchase an inexpensive infrared thermometer, make sure the tires are at the right psi in the am, and check tire temps after a long haul. I'll bet your rears will be running hotter than the front two sets.
