Those aren't Kumhos that separated it is a Maxxis tire. The owner is replacing all 5 of them with Kumho Tires.

I agree it can happen to any of them. I just hadn't heard of a problem with Maxxis until that one. I am currently trying the Kumho tires myself. We shall see. I'm on season 2 with thte set of Kumho's.

I think I have to retract my recommendation for the Kumho 857's I made in post #2. This is my third summer with the tires and now had my second major tire failure. I always check tire pressure and keep them at max pressure. I never thought the Greenball tires that came on the trailer were any good but never had any issues in 6 years before replacing them with the Kumho's.

This happened on our return trip from Eastern Washington on Tuesday. Thankfully I have aluminum fenders or it would have made a mess of the trailer. Only black marks on the frame and fender bracing. I couldn't see the tire since I was pulling the boat with the motorhome so other cars flagged me down on the long straight section of freeway.

+1 for Kumho. I put new Kumho tires on when my boat arrived here in NZ. We don't have the large range of manufacturers represented here but Kumho is available and a well respected brand. I agree with Peter that one issue is not enough to judge the brand objectively. I haven't read on here or anywhere else bad reports? (other than the link posted above)

I am getting new tires next week to replace my original 2006 ones. I already forgot the name.
