That's what I was thinking. I had a very good looking set of 10 year old tires a number of years ago on my boat trailer. Right up until one hot day that two of them blew on the way home from the lake.

one hot day

In the title is, I believe, the operative phrase. In my sordid past, as a heavy equipment operator, I had the opportunity to observe a situation where four Cat 637 Scrapers were driven approximately 150 miles. This was in mid summer during the heat of the day at full speed(approx 30 mph). The tires were all in good shape but had one blow out on the trip. Within 3 days we lost 3 more tires. We ended up changing all 12 tires because of internal blistering due to heat. We also changed the way we drove long distances on the road and had no more problems. When it is hot and I see a MH go flying by me at 70-80 mph, I just shake my head and think "there goes another set of tires"
