Tire exchange

Has anybody switched out their "china bombs" for American made? What brand and type?

Unless you are going with LT tires their are no ST tires made in North America that I know of.( except the Goodyear 614) What size of tire are you looking for?

If you're talking 5er then anything with 6k lb axles can use LT tires but 7k axles you want to get the G614's. TT can use ST tires with no problem. Picking up my new Silverback tomorrow and told dealer won't take it off lot with ST tires on it so he was able to get my 1 year old LT tires transferred. We looked at 6 used 5ers off another lot and out of the 6, five of them had tore up sides from blow outs...not good odds...

I talked to the salesman at Jeff Couch, and he said that all Goodyear are now being made in China. We are buying a 36ckts in Feb. What about Cooper Tires?

Just a discussion yesterday regarding tires. Commercial delivery driver left Goshen with new 5er. Turned off exit to dealer, in sight, 2 tires on left side blew!
No ez answer!! Maybe the issue on damage is all of the cheap stuff on the rv around the tire and housing.
Perhaps metal surrounding under belly and ez replace fender skirts is a better choice. 😁.
As bloggers know, my previous 2011 Keystone blowout was $3200. My cost was: $1000 deductible; $300 tire,( new explosive type from a land far away where people speak a different language).

Watch the outer diameter and carrying capacity on any tire you put under a 36QBOK. I recently wanted to upgrade and found that due to my extreme closeness between the tires, I couldn't increase the outer diameter at all. I went in an entirely different direction (215/75R17.5 LRJ Continental HTL2 Eco-Plus radial tire rated at 4,805 pounds with a 75 mph speed rating).

Are those American Made, and are they available anywhere in the U.S.?

They are American made. I'm not sure where they are available- I ordered the whole setup from Trailer Tires and Wheels - Steel & Aluminum Trailer Wheels, Bias & Radial Trailer Tires. They were shipped the next day from Indiana.
