    My dads company has a Gooseneck trailer. I believe its an eco line or something like that. Its pulled by a F350. And for some reason its burning up the tires. Its a dual axel (4 tires) and in just this past year they went throught 10 tires. Since they had the trailer they had 5 blowouts. Its ran about 2-3 times a week the most they have ever hauled was 8,000 pounds while its rated for 12,000. Any ideas of what could be causing this.

    Axle miss alignment.
    Improperly inflated tires.
    Improperly balanced tires.
    Cheap under rated tires.
    Brake controller not adjusted properly.
    Driver running off the edge of the road.

    please clarify ( And for some reason its burning up the tires.) ???? actually peeling rubber off tires by skidding, or blowing the tire out ,no mileage ,or actually catching the tire on fire ?

    What do the tires look like right before they blow? Cupped,worn in the center, worn on the edges, how much tread, tire pressure? A good tire shop should be able to answer your questions if you show them the trailer.
