the walmart tires were made in korea and i never had a problem there... wonder if it is just the rubber quality or the craftsman quality..

Bill: Duro tires are being made since many years. To give you a small exemple. I have duro tires on my mountain bike and they are over 10 years old. I dont have a single crack in them. It is an exemple like apples and oranges but I think you have a good company there even if it is from China!

Duro tires might be ok, but I wasn't taking any chances, and replaced my brand new Duros with Maxxis tires. I also wanted to upgrade from C-rated to D tires, just to be extra safe. a blowout can cause a lot of damage, is it really worth taking the chance? I don't think so.

I just did the same thing. I am not going to take a chance on thousands of dollars damage for hundreds of dollars for tires. In fact my tires and wheels are in the city now having the new tires put on. I told the dealer I wanted Goodyears made in North America. He recommended the Titan, load range D. I have all the DOT tire manufacture codes of countries of origin. I will be checking the code before I pay for them for sure.

I just won't buy Chinese. Melamine in baby formula, lead paint on baby cribs, poisonous chemicals in plastics, banned pesticides in honey, just to name a few things they have been caught doing. They just have no regard for human life if it gets in the way of the dollar. What makes anyone think tires are any different?

year before last, i went to Sams club looking for a trailer tire. this particular one didn't have any so i told them i wanted the Goodyear and at least a load range E (E is what my trailer calls for). when it arrived, it was load range G...i live a sheltered life, didn't know they had a letter above E in a 16".
unfortunately, i don't know where it was made.
i use to not worry abt the cracks; after my blowout, i replace the tires with almost no wear showing that show cracks. it hurts but not as much as the damage they can cause.
