A 2004 ??? That's 8 years old . Are they original tires ?? They should have been replaced a year or two ago. For safety sake, replace all of them NOW.

I just had to replace the tires on my car carrier trailer. It was bought new in the spring of 2011. I have a friend with a similar problem with his similar trailer of the same age.

The tires they put on trailers appear to be the cheapest thing they can find.

This has to be the top of the list in complaints all across the Internet. So far there has only been one ST tire that appears to hold up for more than delivery miles. And that is Maxxis. For people with larger trailers the wise move is to 16 inch LT tires. But that is costly. But then again so is trailer damage. Choose what you want to do. Sit along side the road with lots of damage and multiple flats or buy better tires.

I'm sorry... New Fire Fox user and I hit the wrong key combo. Didn't realize it posted that incomplete thread. Try this; it explains the "Rest of the Story".

The new Tow-Master ST tires didn't even have 2000 miles on them.
