    Never has a tire blowout while mounted in the spare position....
    Packed up this AM and on the way home stopped by a store, came out a looked over and and saw the belts sticking through the tire cover.

    Wow, that is first for me too! Glad it was not one of your tires on the road.

    That's why I am very leery of starting a long trip with brand new tires. Had my share of defective tires.

    Last year I had 2 blow outs while sitting next to my shop, 1 one each of 2 utility trailers neither had been moved, just sitting there minding their own business. Only thing I could figure is that the heat did it as both were on the side where the sun shines on them.
    I know that one was maybe 6 feet from me when it went and very loud, I had to make a trip into the bathroom to check myself :)I have covers on the tires of the TT including the spare.
