My 20 foot Travel Trailer has had the same Chinese tires on it for 10 years.

I decided it was time to get new ones.

My local mechanic / tire guy got me some new ones and when I got it home I checked the sidewall and found out that they were not made in China !!!

They were made in Thailand. [emoticon]

Actually, he says that these are suppose to be a better tire. I know that they take 65 PSI air pressure. The last Chinese ones were only 50 PSI.

10 years, has it ever been on the road?
Kinda like the 2 old cowboys sitting in a bar, 1st one says "it takes me 3 days to drive across my ranch" the second cowboy looks at him and says "I had a truck like that once".

Ten year old trailer tires? Sounds like a pretty good tire no matter where they were made.

I camp close to home and I am just a weekend camper. The old tires probably only have about 10000 miles on them.

Are they Maxxis? I've had great service out of them and they are made in Thailand.

A blowout 10 miles from home can ruin a trip, damage a trailer and even cause a collision as bad as a blowout 1000 miles from home. You are not more safe close to home. Trailer tires age out and seldom wear out.

Great to hear the positive story on the Sailun S637's; they still look like new after 5 years on my fiver. If I still have the trailer when it's time for new tires they will definitely be going back on it.

Based on past experience with Goodyear and their products over 40 yrs or so, on my own things and work related fleet, I would not put them on so much as a wheelbarrow. If you are madly in love with them have at it.

It's a completely different thread without all the garbage from the Cummins sisters. My word.

You delete info that is pertinent to all - regardless of what Mr. Cummins posts.

Totally wrong when you delete good info - for no apparent reason (except your own prejudices).

AMF !
