SDK, where did you get the fender from? Is it already finished? Mind if I ask the price? I had a blowout 3 years ago that tore my fender up as well. Made me sick.

I think my dealer is getting it from Tennessee Trailer. He quoted me $110 painted, plus shipping cost.

sdk wrote:Well, well, well...the blow out disease hit me last weekend. I lost all the tread from a 7 year old Marathon two miles from the house. The tire did not go flat. Two years ago I lost a plugged Marathon 4 miles from the house. It shredded to pieces. I had the dealer come by the house today and remove all four 7 year old Marathons and will replace them with Tow Masters. I just put over $900 worth of tires on my Camaro and could not see paying $200 more dollars for a set of Marathons over the Tow Masters. Time will tell how these will work out for me. Oh, yeah. The fender is bent all to heck and may have to be replaced, if it can't be straightened enough.
I love boating!! 8) :D


Lucky you were close to home and only suffered minimal damage, I've seen some ugly problems on the highway in the past.

Just curious about the tires, what brand are they?

I just got 4 Carlisle at PepBoys for $360.00 installed (no sales tax in NH!) which seemed very reasonable, but I didn't shop a whole lot.

Tow Master steel radials. Just under $85 each. I'll have total price for everything next week. It was tough sitting on the dock today while the Interceptor is in the garage on jack stands.

New tires were installed today. Still waiting on the new fender. Old fender was put back on minus the bent piece which has been cut off. I will ride on the water this weekend!!

Finally happened to me!!!
Last weekend, my wife and I were driving back from Wyoming to Texas. We were towing a small camper trailer with a four wheeler on top (factory designed specifically for this). 95% tread, no dry rot, properly inflated. All was good until we left the cooler temps up north and as soon as we hit 100*, the inside side wall exploded.
