Didn't worry about tires until I got on this forum. Checked mine and they are "Duro", made in China. After about 8000 miles or so, still look pretty good.

We have been pushing for Made in the USA tires! After all the more made in the USA products we have on these units the fewer problems we will have!

And the more high paying jobs that allow workers to buy new campers!

Win - Win - Win

I have often wondered if Sam Walton was still alive how much different our economy would be. If you remember when he was still around he had a "made in America" push. Now it seems everything you buy at Wal mart is made in China. If they were to reverse that policy it seems logical that thousands of manufacturing jobs would return to the USA! We just need to all make an effort to purchase US goods whenever possible and get those high paying jobs back in the USA.

I wonder why people always say "Walmart"? What about Target & Kmart?

Me too. I put over 25,000 on a set of Marathons. All day tows in 95 degree heat. Over rocky, rutted national forest service roads. Beat the crap out of those tires and they never missed a lick; and they were Chinese.

arjerram, the reason I say Wal-mart is there have been numerous stories of Wal-Mart actually helping and in some cases insisting that companies start producing products in China in order to purchase them cheaper and increase the profit margin. I have never heard of this with the other two. Also, being in the middle of nowhere in Ohio, we have a Wal-Mart, we do not have a Target or a K-Mart. Finally, Sam Walton started an American company that was proud to sell American made products. Now they are operating with a completely opposite strategy. Those are my personal reasons! By the way I will always try to buy American/Canadian before anything else. Thanks-

I WAS worried (because of this and other forums) about my Chinese tires, DURO 2100 radials, when I got my trailer but not anymore; they have performed flawlessly.
