    Hello! I'd like to know how often do you see/hear a tyre explosion while running, or from trucks in parking lots.
    Thank you!

    Probably see 3 or 4 tires a month " blown out". This is typically cheap tires...being drove overweight on hot roads.Ive only had maybe 3 tires "blowout" in 15 years or so. You combat this by "keeping an eye on your tires". Have them changed before they "come apart". Using quality tires, running light loads etc. This is not really an issue.If you wanna run a cheap tire, overloaded in100° heat at 75 mph for hours, it becomes an issue.

    I’ve had one tire blow in the 4+ years I’ve been driving and it was a recap that came on a trailer I bought. I replaced the rest of the recaps with virgin rubber and never had another issue besides occasional leaks of course. I’ve ran many cheap tires and average 80,000 all day long and never had an issue with them besides wearing uneven and wearing out quicker than a better quality tire.

    I have been blessed. None for a couple of years. Those were old trailer tires.when l was using other company's trailers.

    One reason l have been so lucky is my TST Truck tire pressure monitor system. Great folks located in Georgia. Mine have external sensors that screw on the valve stem. Also if a battery goes out in one they swap them out free.

    They even have ones that are internal so nothing goes on your valve stems if you prefer. I had a steer leaking and it warned me. Picked up.a nail in a SS tractor tire it saved me. No affiliation but www.tsttruck.com

    Also whenever you stop take one minute and kick or thump your tires before you leave. Can help keep you off the shoulder.

    I've had two in 3 years. Both were crappy used tires. That's about all I put on my trailer.
