Default Well this was interesting

Have 2016 Vintage Cruiser 19RBS and seeing as how it had some miles put on it since new decided time to replace tires. Go and have new Goodyear Endurance tires installed. Make trip to the Southeast United States and low and behold after stopping in North Carolina for two days get up and notice one tire is low, so decide I have run over something or picked up nail. Remove tire and notice that first off, the rims installed on trailer are rated at 1,870 pounds wheel with spare on it is rated at 2,040 pounds? Really seems odd that they would do it that way. Anyway the problem was not with the tire it was the wheel had a leak on a weld so guess needed to pony up for a new wheel. Plain steel wheels are not readily available so asked to just get me a spoke one and will worry about it later. Well they order wheel say it won't be there until 10 the next day no problem just arrive later in the day in South Carolina so get there they ordered wrong wheel bit the bullet and have it installed and must say it doe not look that bad. Now have replaced both and seems that the wheel leaking is not that big of a surprise just have never had one happen.

We had exactly the same thing happen on our 2015 Vintage RBS; a weld broke on the wheel. Since we had to buy a new wheel we just replaced both with 15".

Happened to me last summer with my 15" rims (replaced both the axle and wheels with a higher capacity one three years ago). Pulled off the highway to get gas 150 miles into the start of the trip. Checked out the trailer like I always do, and thought a tire might be a little low. By the time I was done filling up, that tire was almost completely flat. Changed it out, finished the trip (no other issues), took the flat tire to the shop and they told me the tire looked great but the rim had cracked. Just dumb luck it went while I was getting gas.
