Tires

Does anyone know if you can buy American made trailer tires? Was told by a local tire co. That all the trailer tires are made in China.

Goodyear recently introduced a line of ST type tires "Endurance" and I understand they are made in USA.

Look at Maxxis M8008. They have 13" tires, are made in Taiwan, and have excellent reviews. Several of my friends run nothing but these and have had no problems.

Carlisle makes D load range ST tires for 13 inch wheels.You can order them at Discount Tire (I've done this), other stores, or over the internet.

The only other one I know of is the Chinese Karrier Loadstar that comes on the camper.

When I got my one Carlisle load D at Discount Tire, they charged $103 total.
Recently I ordered two from Walmart, exact same tire, and they charged $68 total for each. Same exact tire.
