Holy Toledo Batman!  Glad nobody was hurt and the mill was basically unscathed!

I got to looking at the other tire. They put them on there with a tube in them as they couldn't seat the bead. I bet some of the rust inside wore a hole in the tube and it all went down hill from there.

I decided to replace my single axle RV trailer tires as one had issues. The other side when I pulled the wheel had a large sidewall bubble not easily seen w/o crawling underneath the trailer. I bought trailer specific tires on Walmart.com on shipped to stored deal which allowed me far more choices than at a store plus I got them mtd & balanced as part of the deal. Hard to buy a made in USA tire these days.
Goodyear Endurance tires are trailer rated and made in the USA. About $50 each more than mid grade Chinese. Worth it to me so that's what I put on our camper.

About a decade ago I put on my first set of G rated trailer tires, and I will NEVER go back to anything else.  Yup they are spendy, yup they are heavy, yup the guy mounting them complains - (make them balance them - the logic of not balancing trailer tires makes no sense). I had some that gave me an honest 100,000 miles of loaded use and never showed a sign of getting ready to fail.  Been there, done that with trailer tires blowing out, thus the move.

Wow, that's certainly a dicey experience no one likes to experience. Glad you could patch her up and get home safe.

     That was a really dicey situation.  I'm glad it all worked out with no more damage than you have.  It could have been a lot worse.

I agree completely but there are no 15" tires capable of handling the weight of my camper according to my tire store manager. I really tried to find them.

Dang, that looks familiar! I had the same thing happen on my lt30 a few years ago doing about 70 down I5, but it destroyed the rim too. Glad you kept it all shiny side up.

I saw where someone asked how I got it home. Well I had a storage building with a bunch of stuff in it where the mill used to sit. I had hired a rollback to go and bring it home. He called and said he was on his way about 10 minutes before the tire blew. So I called him and told him to abort the shed mission as I had a more important use for him and the shed could wait. When he got there we were trying to winch it on the rollback and everything we did made it want to tip over. A friend happened to drive by with his work truck, he's a mobile mechanic. We got him in the ditch beside the mill and used his crane on the work truck to lift on the top of the mast and keep everything upright. The tire blew a little after 3 P.M. and the mill was in my yard by 5.






5 minutes after the rollback leaves another truck I had hired pulled in the yard with  my loaders. He would have come up the same road so I had backup all the way around and just didn't know it.

Glad you made it out ok. Kinda strange how the newest thing on the mill failed first. It is amazing nothing else broke loose after so many hours. 
Have a great day milling!
