tire trouble

Hey, me again--had a breakdown 2 days ago--tire seperated--tore up some stuff underneath--driving home today same thing happened on the other side--no damage--no flat--drove it home slowly-wondering if bad shocks are causing it to hit on these tires--or if just an incredible coincident that 2 would go out within 30 miles---Vince--I think ther"re all too old

How old are the tires? There is a date code on the sidewall...a 4 digit number that indicates the week and year of manufature? What brand?

Also if you drove with a single tire inflated on a rear corner that normally has duals, you exceeded the capacity of that tire and it will then be the next one to blow out.

Yeah, you need to find the date code and post it. We can tell you how old they are. RV tires almost never wear out but rather have to be replaced because they "timed out".

Views vary, but most replace their tires between five and ten years.
