Bad Blow out!!!

I was driving home tuesday night in the slow lane. I had pulled over to give my wife insurance info because she was on the way to the hospital. As I was getting back up to speed 45-70 there were cars merging from a on ramp when I noticed a bag of cement near the white lines. I started to slow but too late, the truck missed it, the driverside front tire on the trailer nailed it. the trailer wiggled a little then through the lights of cars behind me I saw all the smoke. the tire was destroyed. It looks like a bomb went off in the tire. I will post pics tomorrow since my wife is back from the hospital.

Ouch... After my wreck where I rear ended my buddy's boat, I said to my buddy's wife that I noticed my boat trailer was riding a little funny (He was going to drop his boat off at his house, his wife and kids got in my truck after the accident). We agreed that it was because I had bent my trailer. Well, a few miles later, his daughter (in my back seat) says "why are there black chunks flying out from behind the trailer?"

Just because I kiss the prettiest girls and I drive my truck too fast, why does everybody want to kick my @ss?

Most trailer tires suck, don't they?

I noticed on my trailer they are Freestars. Freaking China made crap. I had thought I was getting Goodyears. Hopefully they will last a year and I can get Michelins/Goodyears.

Had a blow out a couple weeks ago on the 5th wheel and no spare . I got rid of the For Trailer Use POS tires and went with regular steel belted car tires.

I was 60 miles east of Kingman AZ with my 5er and blew the left front tire on the trailer.... within 1/2 mile the other tire on the same side let go... 4:30 on a Sat. afternoon and one spare....ouch. To top it off, coming back through the SAME stretch of highway going the other way one week later, lost a tire on the passenger side!!! Now I carry two spares, and a wad of cash just in case!!

BTW, can you guess who made the tires? You got it, freestar! They were only 1 year old, and I weighed the trailer when I got home- I was under my GVW....
