Were these E rated Maxxis and if so do you have the model #.
Maxxis web page doesn't show an E rated trailer tire.

CloudDancing, see info on the Web site below (click on SPECIFICATIONS tab). The 8 ply-rated tires are Load Range "D", and the 10 ply-rated are "E".

M8008 ST Radial

Also, as mentioned before, we purchased our Maxxis Load Range "E" tires through Discount Tire. I keep them inflated to 80 psi to reduce overheating (and blowouts) here in desert southwest where it is around 110 degrees right now.

Well we did have another tire blowout. This time 1/2 hour from home, that's 2 in one week. So we unloaded trailer and went on home. We left it at a tire shop. The tire had lost all of its outer tread and was rolling on about 4" of rubber which was keeping the rim off the ground. Some small damage to wheel well but that was all. Now the decision is between Carlisle E or Maxxiis E. About $200 difference. We don't mind spending the $200 if it will be worth it. There isn't much written on the web about Maxxiis. While that appears to be good news, it could be that they are not used nearly as often as the other brands. Thanks for all the info. MJ

Thanks for all the Maxxis feedback. I'm still concerned that they are not rated above 65 MPH as That doesnt seem much margin at 65-70 MPH expressway speeds. I also think that Goodyear and Airstream should bear some responsibilty for this situation. I plan to contact both.
