geez...............................


I couldn't agree more.

And a title of China bomb assuming the tires were junk? Did the OP read the sidewalls at 45mph???

Did one ever consider that with the extremely low temps, he probably blew that tire due to VERY low PSI. What was 50psi in September was probably half that months later after a below zero night.

But hey, would you look at that, I to am now speculating and assuming. Damn you internet forums...LOL!!!

this story confirms that the best way to change a flat is to upgrade the trailer tires ( and wheels , if necessary ) , long beforehand .
Load Range E tires in the largest size you can fit .
so many times on this forum there are posters who claim that Brand is most important.
That is simply not true.
The most important thing in trailer tires is the highest possible load capacity in pounds and inflation to the maximum psi , which is also stated on the sidewall .
just because the trailer manufacturer does not install the higher load rated tires does not mean that the stock tires are adequate for extreme heat or hazardous roads.
Load Range E , baby ........
as big as will fit .

All the judgement of the poster here, what the heck was someone going down the road doing 45 to 50 on the RIM! That is dangerous and risking the lives of others around. Change it or not, get it off the road safely!

Where or when did the OP state that someone was going down the road 45 to 50 on the RIM?
