It’s possible they are overinflated.
You need to do some weighing
Truck empty
Truck loaded for a trip with hitch in bed
Truck and trailer
Then you will know your true weights.

Try Toyo tires.

Weigh the rig up. You may find it is overloading the tires.

Slow down. The tires won't heat as much.

You still need to verify the weight on the rear axle !

Seems odd, but you may have to shift to 16" rims and LT 285/75R16 tires which have a higher payload.

What does the door sticker say for tire pressure ? If you are filling them to 80 psi cold, they will be running more than that hot !

You’re suggesting something impossible since 16s won’t fit on the OPs truck. Besides that would be going backwards in handling ability compared to other sizes.

You need to provide more info in order for an Internet guesstimate solution.

How fast do your drive empty..towing heavy…

What is the condition of the roads you travel

Is your gauge correct? And if so, is ‘that’ wheel’s tire valve stem changed with each tire change & is rated for LT 10 ply’s 80 PSI? Passenger tire valve stems have some NOT rated for 80 PSI.

Since several and different OEM’s with the same way failed…thinking more to do with what has been common to them all.

The valve rating above to is that wheel true ? Does it have a pinhole leak ? (On that, does it always read low and needs topping off, while the others don’t?)

Has all the tires from all OEMs been repaired and if so, were they only repaired in the RMA’s recommended area? It is smaller an area than most think, and is only in the radial BELT area and NOT over towards the tread edge. Worst is on the sidewall.

That is the best I can think of with the info the OP has posted.

Uh I think that’s how you are supposed to fill them.

Do you rotate side to side or front to back?

You are running good tires so you need to look at other causes.

Overinflation.


The dodge fan boys hate the dodge/ram dealerships. Now that I have owned a Mexican Fiat Oui-Oui (La fiat wee-wee), I understand why.
The only thing more incompetent than Ram is Bye-don and his supporters.

Have all the blowout been on the same rim? I don't think over inflation would be the problem as e rated tires are generally good for 80#
Before you mount your new ones have the rim checked for trueness.
Long shot but make sure your axle is also running true. Three flats in the same position is just not normal. I think you are looking at some mechanical fault.
