 We were driving to spokane washington from phelan calif. when we had a tire tread come off passenger front of dual axle thore transport 5th wheel trailer. ripping off fender skirt. i put spare on and 28 miles later passenger rear tire had a blow out. tires had maybe 1500 miles on them. this happened in redding cali. i was not going to take any more chances, so i bought four new tires. the man at the tire store said he could not visibly see the cause of the blow out or the tread coming off. tires were inflated to proper psi. trailer was not over loaded. no water in water tanks. tires are covered when not in use. average speed was 55 mph. i feel that these tires are unsafe and should be recalled. *jb
 In june 2002 i bought new from the factory a thor tahoe transport 33' fifth wheel. the vehicle was equipped with merit all country radials size, lt235/85r16 e. up until the failure i had put about 3000 miles on the tires, typically traveling about 150 miles per trip, one way. the vehicle is rated at 11400 gvw. i run about 10200 lbs total weight. on august 14, 2004 i was returning from a 131 mile trip. at about 1:30 p.m. after travelling about 100 miles, while travelling at 60 mph on i-17, the right rear tire tread separated near the town of new river, north of phoenix. the tire held air but the entire tread peeled off. i was able to pull off the highway safely and replace with a spare before continuing. there was minor damage to the underbelly protective blanket and the side skirt of the trailer. i have since replaced all the tires and have the failed tire available for inspection. *ak
