In your case, your tires should be warrantied by the distributor of the tire to Forest River till March of next year.
Who in their right mind would replace these awful tires with the same under warranty? You would have to be nuts.
I do not understand why any manufacturer would use such an inferior product or distributor on what I consider to be one of the most important safety items.
As stated, all it will take is a few nasty accidents caused by inferior tires and Berkshire will be out of the RV business.
They really should rethink the crap they are sending us home on. I am not sure how they sleep at night knowing there is a problem and doing nothing about it.
We are already considering upgrading in a year or so to a 5th wheel and based on how FR is handling this issue (or not dealing with it) they will more than likely not be getting any repeat business from us.
Yes, I know, "they all do it". But what a lame response. And what a lame way to do business.
