Why in God's name are you running retreads? This is a prime example of running with a flat on a retread. You can even see where they vulcanized The retread to the rear tire.

This was a customers trailer. I haul MANY boats, none are my personal trailers.

On this trailer, they were on a 1.5 year old trailer, Came from factory with tires, BRAND NEW... I just used that picture as a example of separation. Tire was warranted by Goodyear. To clarify, picture was taken after I was able to get to safe area off Interstate to take picture for customer, then change tire. Was about a mile after it blew apart.

Ended up with the Hankook tires. Had them .mounted and balanced and are now in the trailer. They look good and will hopefully perform well. Manufacturing date was 42ed week of 2023.
