I was hesitant in starting another thread on tires but I just purchased a new Palomino Sabre 5th. wheel that has Akuret tires. I have never heard of Akuret tires. Looks like they are distributed by Del Nat Tire Corp., or Delta Tire Corp. Their web site indicated they are manufactured by various tire manufacturers. I have the HF188 ST Load Range E 16".
Anyone have any experience with these tires?

My policy, if I don't recognize the tire name then they will come off. I've done this on 3-4 trailers and have kept from having a tire blow.

I have these tires on my trailer and have no issues whatsoever. This is very good advice, except about the metal valve stems. There are rubber valve stems specifically manufactured for the high tire pressures that will give excellent service.

Check the DOT code to see hhow old they are, and where they were made. If you don't have your decoder ring, post the code so we can answer you on those things.

I'd be willing to bet they're another China bomb. Last week they were probably called something else. Like someone else said, you paid a lot of money for your new trailer why not install some tires you have heard of, that you can get service for while on the road if you need it. I've never seen an "Akuret Tires Sold Here" sign anywhere in my travels have you?

When was the last time you traveled through China? Perhaps that is why you didn't see the signs (that and you probably can't read Chinese).

You might ask them direct

Del nat

but I think I would have to agree with the others - if they can't come right out and tell you where they are made then you don't want to know.

I actually have them on my 5th wheel too. After a year, they are still fine. So not much time yet. We were forced to buy new tires on our first trip with our new to us trailer two summers ago. Old ones were delaminating 50 miles from home on our first trip. It was all the tire store had. So far so good.
