Have your trailer weighed and see how much weight is being put on those tires. Then buy tires rated for the weight that you carry. Be sure to look at the wheels as well.

Also, if you're having blowouts, there could be an issue with the suspension/alinement. The suspension on the Redwoods seem to be the weakest link in too many cases.

Good Luck

What tires do you have? The Goodyear Marathons are marginal for the Redwood. I think they only put G614's on them now but earlier models had the Marathons.

You did not mention what model trailer you have. The minimum size tire on these trailers should be G rated. The 38 and 39 models should have H rated tires on them

When I replaced my tires I got Gladiator QT235/80r/16, These tires have 14ply and 10ply side walls. They cost around $160.00ea. They been on over 3 years and 5000 miles with out a problem.
