I've got this much:
"Durun

Profile
Shandong Yongtai Chemical Group is a leading radial tire manufacturing facility. The company produces LTR, PCR, TBR, and UHP tires in the brands Durun, Banners, and Goldway. Yongtai carries CCC, DOT, ECE, ISO, AND INMETRO certification.
Yongtai feels they have one of the most modern quality inspection and R & D centers in China."

My self, there are lots of other tires out there to choose from that come from other places than China.

Keep in mind that OTR durability is probably based on number of miles before they are worn out whereas we may never wear a set out.

That said, I just put on 4 Roadmasters made in China but engineered by Cooper. Time will tell how they last.

Check into B F Goodrich. They are owned by Michelin and made in the USA. Cheaper than Michelin but not cheap. We bought ST230's truck tires load range H and are very happy with them after 20,000 miles. No wear showing and no cupping. Nice soft ride. We bought them at the suggestion of Pat at Pro Tires in Denton TX. He came to our RV site, changed the tires, aligned the motorhome and set the toe-in. Rides and drives like a dream!

My Michelin dealer said the all the Michelin sales hype was just that,"HYPE". He will not run Michelin tires on his ¾ million dollar coach and recommended that I not put them on our coach. He runs Hankook tires on his and sold me on the Hankook AH-12 tire, at about 60% the cheapest price I could find for Michelin.....2 years and 16K miles and I am very happy with his recommendation.

I look at it this way; your tires are the only thing keeping your coach going down the road. How much did you pay for you MH and how much would it cost to replace it or worse if a tire blows. I want the best tires on my MH and buying quality Michelin tires is a small price to pay for the safety of all on board my MH. So do you really trust a Chinese tire? Not me thank you!
