Default Effn sick and tired of tire issues...

Anyone else lose 5 tires in a month on three vehicles?

Blew Cooper on truck. Cooper does not make that tire anymore, opted for all new rims and tires.

Flat on daily driver Mazda which I was able to fix.

Towing to SML two weekends ago, ejected entire tread off boat trailer tire, just like a semi-truck re-tread. The tire still held air, but when the tread came off, it made a perfect round bulge into the top of my fender.

Coming home from SML trip a few days later, lost another one, but that one was my fault for not keeping a better eye on things. I'll admit that.

Coming home from SML today, snapped belts in a different trailer tire and tread came apart, albeit still held air.

Is it rubber season or something?

Does anyone else carry/have TWO boat trailer spare wheels/tires with them at all times? I am thinking of investing in a second one.

What air pressure are you runnin? Everyone thinks that they are just supposed to run 35lbs like most cars but the trailer tires want 50 (it should say on the side). If you only run 35 lbs in them they get hot and come apart. How do I know this?? Hmmmm.

The roads in Florida have been full of nails ever since the hurricanes from all the roof repair trucks. I have to fix one or two tires a month on my two vehicles.
