The first trip I took in my small class C was 5500 miles - I spent many of those miles wondering about tire temperatures and pressures. My first purchase upon returning was a TPMS. It brings me great comfort being able to check my tire pressures anytime during the day. A TPMS might give you notice that a tire is heating up or losing pressure.

If you choose this solution, be sure to pretest it, you might need a repeater.

YES....
then it is NOT an overloading the tire issue
1st GY Blew (road debris, underinflated, bad tire, nail/screw whatever) and damaged rim.
New GY on damaged rim and it blew in 350 miles.

Carlise with its' own rim....1700 miles ---didn't blow

Do I have that right??

YES....then you just need a New rim and GY tire

NO....then you need to find/solve WHY one tire blows on the curbside rear axle???????

Carlisle rode on stock rim after we exchanged it after first blowout. So it went about 250 miles just fine. When I put new Goodyear’s on I put the Carlisle on the spare rim to act as my new spare. We went about 350 miles with the Goodyear on the stock rim before the second blow out. Put the Carlisle on with the spare rim which rode the additional 1700+ miles and a few hundred mile trips after that big one. No problem.

So two blowouts on stock rim with maybe 500 miles of use. No blow outs on spare rim with 2000+ miles.

I can't add anything to the blowout discussion, but I do want to mention a lesson I learned when I went from D to E rated tires. The wheels have ratings too and my wheels were not rated for the pressure of the E rated tires, nor the weight they could carry so new tires became new wheels and tires.

Then I would be suspicious of that OEM Rim

Becauee they can!

Welcome to the unregulated world of RV manufacturing. Nobody holds them accountable. Flimsy and shoddy construction, undersized tires, and more.

Remember the fiasco with the Ford Explorer and Firestone tires? Ford ended up being held accountable by the media and by the courts. Firestone took years to recover.

It does happen... example: My dad purchased a 1965 Dodge van brand new. He had slow leaks in all the tires for months. The dealer showed him a TSB about rims... the welding machine that fastened the rim center to the outer rim was mis-set and the welds were micro-pinholed. He got 5 new rims for free. I remember this, even tho it was over 50 years ago as it was the first TSB I had ever heard of...

Goodyear I know has a load/inflation chart. I used it with my ST endurance and marathon tires.
