I know you don't want to hear it, but if the tires are not Goodyear, Maxxis, Kumho, I would replace them now.

Not telling me anything i haven't told myself . I'm sure they use the cheapest tires they can get away with . have found a couple E 3000lbs rated 15" tires , will be worth the extra 800

Just a gut feeling, but my factory tires (2540# rating) don't look cheap like some I've seen. The rubber has a nicer look to it, I know you can't tell much by looking.

Maxxis is the old Cheng Shen Rubber Co., the used to make very good MC tires. Them and Goodyear are made in SE Asia. I think quality control is better for Maxxis and Goodyear, but that may be a pipe dream.

DOT code: JULT 1CT 4913.

Manufacturer JU HANGZHOU ZHONGCE RUBBER CO., LTD., HANGZHOU, ZHEJIANG, CHINA. I'm not sure what the LT or the 1CT means, unless that is the plant code. They were all made in the 49th week of 2013. I need to clean them up... grass clippings all over them. They are 10 ply rated radial tires, rated 2540# at 65psi. Link below for E rated Westlakes, FYI.

I thought LT were light truck tires, but certainly not a tire expert.

No they are ST (special trailer), the code is JULT, where JU is the manufacturer, I would bet LT identifies the actual plant.
