Also, to complain, the mobile tire guy charged me $139 mounting fee on top of the tire cost, with Good Sam roadside insurance paying the "rest".


139 dollar mounting fee is robbery around here.

I have a question . Did the tire actually "Blow" like boom ! Or did it just go flat ?

This thread is going to win the “misinformation” of the month thread!
Jimlin is the only guy who’s posted common sense and at that, what he’s purporting will happen “may” only happen in a panic stop IF the brake gain can even lock them up and not likely at only 15 psi different. If anything the higher pressure tire will be exerting more ground pressure if torsion axles and if leafs it will make zero difference.
Agree, If tire popped due to unknown cause and not a road hazard then it’s time to replace all of them.
But same size D and E will have no problem co existing on the same trailer and presuming 65 psi is enough air, running to 80 while other tires are at 65 is also a useless move.
Generally it’s good to run trailer tires with higher pressure les heat less rolling resistance , but the plethora of BS in this thread is laughable.

Good Sam guy installed an E.


Which tire shop was the tech from? (he only has a referral from Good Sam)

Like others have said, it's probably time to replace all tires.
