Had to replace my tires a month ago. Had a flat on my last trip, so I bit the bullet replaced the China bombs. The tire that went flat might have suffered from a blow from a pot hole or a curb check sometime in the past. Hey, it's a long trailer and being able to make a wide turn is not always possible.

X2 on the other's advice.
Replace ASAP, even if you have to pay yourself.

Would NOT go with anything but a set of BALANCED GY Marathons or Maxii LR D regardless of what the dealer or FR does. You are flirting with problems.

Whatever you get, make sure you have tire covers.

I have a question.. I just purchased a 2014 flagstaff and after reading this went out to check. And sure enough they have the westlake tire on them... that had the recall back in 2007. The tires arent that old. But is there anything to be concerned with here. I mean I have less then 150 miles on them.. I keep them covered and keep uv block on them and up on blocks when parked. But I just wondering why FR would still have these brands and putting them on new units.. Do I have any recourse here.. Would hate to have to go out and purchase new tires on a brand new unit..But I a little concerned with safety also..

FR will probably refer you to the manufacture of the tire. I had three tires replaced last fall due to cracks in the sidewall. My trailer is also a 2013. The manufacture shipped me new tires, I had to cut the codes out of the old tires and mail them back. The new tires are a different brand and seem to be holding up better than the one tire that was not replaced.
