Damn Tire Co!!!!

    I have an 16 ft landscape 2 axel trailer bought new about 3 years ago. The 2 rear tires had some good wear, front tires looked really good. { 2 years at least }. The rear tire had slow leak, so I told on of my workers to go to a large tire co I deal with & have an fleet account. I always get my tires for my 20ft enclosed { 10 ply, at least }, well, when my truck comes back home, I seen that the tires are a smaller profile { very noticeable }.

    I get a call from my helpers, that one of the older tires blew, comming off ramp into major hiway. I immediately think of the tires that are new, kinda like training wheels. The new tires are less than 6 ply, even though they have trailer load ratings on them. My trailer is off the hiway, & now I have to go in there in a.m. & snap!! I will tell them to take off the bicycle tires, & they can replace the one that blew off the rim too!!!

    Am I right in this situation??? Thanks
