We purchased our Grey Wolf 22RR Toy Hauler two years ago and is our first TT. This past week we had a tire blow out and the tire totally disintegrated. There was nothing left and the old tire wrapped around the axle. We were traveling about 65 with a load of about 1800 lbs. Its rated for 2500 lbs.



I assume the stock tires, Castle Rock ST205/75R14, 8PR load range, D105/101L, are fairly cheap tires? I think maybe they are only 6 ply tires as it says 2 ply tread, 2 wire ply and 2 sidewall ply.



Obviously, I need to replace the tire that disintegrated, but should I replace all 4? I would rather spend more money and avoid problems on the road. If I replace all 4 what should I get? Again, I'm willing to spend the money to avoid problems on the road.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I am sure many will say I am full of **** but the best thing you can do is what I did when I had a TT...which is remove the "China Bombs" which are on all new TT and replace them with Light Pick-up Truck tires...

IF you only replace one, how much will you worry about the other three EVERY MILE YOU HOPE TO DRIVE?
Replace all four breathe easy and relax.

Totally agree! Good Year , at least "E" rated. In addition, I would suggest replacing all the bearings sets and then repacked . I repack my bearings every 2 yrs.

There are a few for VW vans that are 14" and in the correct width and load rating for travel trailers.

Name calling over tires? Road debris isn’t selective on where a tire is manufactured. I’d replace all those tires, however, with the next heavier duty…Es.
