Hercules power str tires

Here we go again about tires.Has anyone had Hercules Power STR tires?Not much info on the internet about them.
After blowingout 2 rear Tow Master tires one on the rt and one on the LT in just over 100 miles.I bought a set.The dealers think a lot of them but that may be because of profit margen.
The damage to the trailer was so bad the insurance would total the trailer so we are and have been doing the repairs.
YES pressure was good in them and I never tow over 60 MPH.

Hi Jimmy;

Sorry to read about your damage. No advice on tires as we haven't bought any. I believe we are running on Yokohama truck tires.

Keep us posted as to your repairs.

All the best

Hi Jim; I don't know if you remembers us, Dorothy and I were at Quartzsite for Thanksgiving 2009. Richard & Jan deep fried a bird. Anyway, we are taking our AS to the Tucson dealer for some work. When finished we plan on heading your way up on the rim. I put the coordinates in my GPS, we shouldn't have a problem finding you. See you in about a week to ten days.

On the move

Well it has been a nice cool 5+ months hosting at the Rim CG.We will close it the night of 12 Oct and be off to a new spot on the 13th.
Right now it looks like we will go to Roosevelt Lake AZ till about the 20th then head for the 4 CU rally at Pancho Villa State Park NM that start 23rd Oct via nights at Apache Gold Casino RV park and Roper State Park.

I have to tell you that I don't plan on retiring to a rocking chair. A man wasn't meant to do nothing,even if he can afford to. Lay about long enough,your mind decides your life is over,and you die.I don't intend for that to happen to me.

Home now, and one year older.Just came from the 4CU rally at Pancho Villa State Park in Columbus NM. Time now to clean trailer for storage while I get a new hip.
Then with a lot of luck on the road again. If not it may be time to sell the trailer and hit the old rocking chair.My mind still wants to stay on the road BUT the old body has trouble keeping up with my wants.

Now let's not forget what you wrote above. I like those words and plan to live by them. Ok to go home and rest for a while... so you can get ready for the next road trip.
