Time for a set of Sailun S637 commercial grade all steel ply carcass in a ST235/80-16 G @4080 lbs/110 psi if those wheels are pressure rated that high. These tire are reasonably priced.

Or a Goodyear G 614 in a LT235/85-16 G at 3750 lbs/110 psi. This is another commercial grade all steel ply tire....but their pricey.

Those Duro's don't have a good rep on rv and non rv trailering websites.

Look at the Hankook line. Been running their Maxi-Vantage commercial G rated trailer tire for 2 years and 12,000 mile and not a problem.

We changed ours to the BF Goodrich commercial t/a and after around 7000 miles and no problems. This is on a 34' Sandpiper fifth wheel

I've decided on the Sailun S637 G Load (14 ply).
No bad reviews anywhere.
They are one of the few Asian tire companies to meet the ISO16969 quality and management guidelines.

X2 Ran Sailuns on our TS which CAT'd about <15k, never had a problem.

Like Big Earl, I've run the BFG tires.... 235/80/16... I just took off the first set... 8 years old and about 35% of the tread is left... and installed the same tires again... I don't have a clue how many miles... but its lots...

Impressive. Nice to see the remaining tire holding the rim off of the road.

Did you have a TPMS to warn you of the blow out?

Glad the tire was the only casualty.

The BFG Commercial have 3042 lbs capacity and not a good fit for a 40' trailer.
The OPs trailer has 8 lug wheel which indicates a 7k or 8k axle or 3500-4000 lb rated tire at a minimum.

The Sailun S637 with 4080 lbs capacity meets his trailers tire load requirements.
