Cut your losses and buy some Maxxis 8008's, highly recommended here. Why have the dealer reinstall the same china bombs?

Sorry, that was Bob Caldwell asking about where the Hercules were made.

Well forest river came trough and offered me 50% back on 5 new tires. I choose Carlisle and are already installed including spare. Just waiting my reimbursement cheque from forest river. Awesome service from both my dealer and forest river.

Glad FR took action. If you recorded the tire DOT serial it also would be good to file complaint with NHTSA on the "tread delamination" tire failure. Many times this type of failure simply does not make it into the NHTSA database and with out sufficient numbers there will never be any action from NHTSA.

If you do not have the DOT then it may not be of value as that is a key bit of information DOT needs. Everyone should have a record of the DOT of all their tires written down. This will help you know if you are involved if there is ever a tire recall in the future.
