Untreaded Not Blown

It's true, I fell asleep on my keyboard which explained that garbled goo goo ga ga at the end of my last message.

It seems I need a lot more rest these days while my body heals.

Turns out my tired did not blow, but rather lost it's tread! It was still fully inflated when it was changed out.

Well, all is well now.








The outer tire is only a few months old. The inner one lost it's tread. How strange!

  1. I had the same tire issue on my last coach when it had only 5000 miles on it. It turned out that the inside rear tire was the wrong size and simply beat the thread off. The RV manufacturer paid for the costs including a new outside tire, since it was carrying extra load for the 5K since the inside tire was barely touching the ground.

  4. Glad you are feeling better after that event and the long wait along the side of the highway.

    Take photos of the tread that has the serial number and try contacting the manufacturer. There may be a recall on that tire. It is extremely unusual for a tire to lose its tread unless it was a retreaded tire. After my second blowout on my Michelins, I discovered all the tired on my vehicle were covered by a recall, and I got 7 new ones from them.

  5. You should also make sure that the tires have enough space between them, and NEVER EVER RUB on each other. This can happen due to low inflation, improper installation, or even because of tire design.
