Just as an aside, Lion's Head web site looks like it was built by a 12 year old. That alone would be enough make me run the other direction.

Yes and I searched around for something about warranty and the only thing I found was a multi-page doc with instructions on how to submit a claim....but NOTHING on exactly what warranty comes with them.

Castle Rock Tires

If you can get the DOT number from one of the tires you can search manufacturer via a DOT search. Try this link.

That's not fair. Many 12 year olds are pretty tech savvy these days and would likely run circles around most of us as regards website design.

OK, change that to "non-tech savvy 12 year old". It adds even more emphasis to the point. Thanks for the clarification.

Re quality trailer tires...... Just upgraded to Goodyear marathons up one load range from Westlake brand so called China bombs that came with unit. Goodyear marathons are made in China as are most every ST tire I can find. Just hoping these are better China bombs than I swapped off. If nothing else they have a little extra load capacity than my trailer needs.... Unlike the originals that were totally maxed out on load. Stressing the tires less may provide peace of mind. Or maybe I just wasted $600

I doubt you wasted your money. I would expect that Goodyear is having the tires manufactured to their specifications regardless of where they're made as they have an interest in quality because their name is on the tire. However, the other "no name" brands are probably built to minimum spec.
