Just curios to see if someone can answer a question about my new tires on my 2015 Cedar Creek. I ordered the 7000 lb axles with the 8 lug wheels and assumed (yeah I know what assumed means) I would get the G Goodyear LT tires. I looked at the tires about the time we were pulling off the dealer lot and saw they were West Lake tires made in China. I know their is a lot of discussion about the China Tires but I am not really sure what to think. The tires are 14 ply G rated as the Goodyear 614 tires were so just going by ratings I guess they should be the same.
We were in the general area of the Cedar Creek factory after picking up the Coach so stooped by for the tour. We ran into one of the factory reps and I asked what was up with the China tires on my 7000 lb axles. Her response was the Goodyear G tires have been d rated from 3750 per tire to 3480 per tire and for liability reasons they would not put them on a 7000 lb Axle any more. 3480 + 3480 = 6960. The West Lake tires were rated at around 4200 each so no problem on 7000 lb Axle.
I still see the Goodyear 614 LT tires being offered on the Cedar Creek web site and also other sites. My question is can anyone confirm what the Rep told me was correct or was I just lucky to get the China Tires??
