picker, I hope you realize that none of my replies are directed at you or your query, but at the companies that would allow questionable equipment and material to be used on something like an rv, where people's safety is of concern.
Seems like almost all of you trailer owners are in the same boat when it comes to decent, quality, safe tires. Thankfully, we motor home owners are in a little better shape as the tires that are supplied with the rigs are of known brands and quality.
None of my replies or humor was directed at you.

So it is a house brand of lions head. Seems like they sell a tire with one brand name till it gets a bad reputation then they change the mold so it has a different name on the side.

There is another thread in this same site about someone having trouble with a tire brand called Constancy Tires. Also China made, and also having problems.
Again, it's a shame you trailer owners are put in the position of having to constantly monitor a brand new trailer/tires.
Personally, if I were in the op's shoes, I would demand that some quality rubber was on that trailer before it left the lot.
Go back and read older posts and you'll find that the majority of tire problems, of which there seem to be a lot, are related to sub-standard imports.
Thankfully we mh owners have many more choices when it comes to quality tires, and manufacturers that stand behind their product. Case in point, the Michelin recall involving class c tires. A hundred or so had failures, so Michelin recalled over a million tires, 7 of which were mine.
Like to see Castle Rock or Constancy Tires do that.

Someone on the other thread posted that if you want to buy a quantity of 3000 tires from this one China manufacturer, they'll put any name you want on it, like
HAPPY VIBE'S ST RV and ATV MUDDER TIRES

This is the Same issue we went thru when I Posted about the Corvette Tires on TT. They had a very different tread pattern and the NAME on the sidewall was LIONSHEAD! I ask the Lionshead Vender at the Goshen Rally about the Corvette Tires and they knew EXactly what I was talking about,and said they have Dropped those from the RV ST line! Like said on here Order 3000 Tires and we can have TURBs TIRES made and sold on FRF! Youroo!!

I'm, also, skeptical and have never heard of them. On my Trailer Express tires, in small print near the rim, it says, "Made in China"...I can't zoom in close enough on the pics to see on your pics. (But my TE's are holding up pretty good...no issues after one year of use. Well, I did have issues on 3 of them as they came with el cheapo rubber valve stems and I just brought them to Discount Tires and had nice metal ones installed.)

Good luck!

And there are many people that have not had issues. There just seems to be an inconsistency to the build quality.
