They must have been defective then? Biggest cause of blow out is under inflation but you've already said they where on bar.

Yeah, but he also said he knew about 2 leaks that were present.

FWIW, I've heard from some sources that trailer tires should be replaced every 2 years. Since they're essentially idler wheels, you can't use tread depth as a wear indication, as the sidewalls are what are breaking down the most. Kind of makes sense I suppose; certainly flies with most of the tire failures I've seen.

I wish someone would build a trailer with tandem wheels, but where the one set could be raised up when you're doing tight manoeuvres. I do a lot of high-speed/long distance trailing, and have had two tires go over the years... and it isn't fun.

Unfortunately, I also need to wiggle my boat into a tight corner to park it, and tandem wheels would make it tough to turn...

20' boat? And a tandem trailer?

Why not simply lose the second axle? You'll lose a bit of redundancy, but since that only matters when you have a tire problem (i.e. twice over the period you've owned it) that should make the tradeoff a little more palatable (plus the advantage of half the number of bearings, tires, etc.)

Just a thought...

tyres where new with trailer from purchaser 2 years ago, nothing really, as there was plenty of tread, not remoulds no wall damage i beleive the right pressure and no way near over loaded at time of said incident,

drove home more slower today must admit

pics of tyre should of took one of trailer before sorting the guard and bits out, but on the hard shoulder i just ripped it all of, thank god for a 24v Rattle gun in the boot made short work of it all,


just looking at pics tyres where 6 ply not 8, now thats naughty indespension!!! sure std is ment to be 8 ?

i have fitted 3 new 8 ply's now
That tyre looks cooked...Perhaps it overheated from being flat or under inflated.. I suggest that you stop when you can and check the temp of tyres and hubs. Doing 80MPH towing a trailer is worth 6 penalty points but only 3 are on offer.
