If you look at the DOT code stamped in the sidewall of the tire, it will tell you who and where they were manufactured, you just need the magic decoder ring, link below.

I have Tow Max on my 2010 Surveyor 186 Sport. Best I can tell, it's a cheap Chinese brand. Anyone have any experience with these, or information? Thanks.

I'm not sure who made mine, or what ethnic food they ate the night before they made them, but for me, I am going to visually inspect my tires for unusual wear and tear, try to keep them from hitting bad holes and curbs, I will make sure the pressure gage reads 50 psi before my trip, and as long as they stay round on the bottom while I am driving, I will be happy, and then when the tread lies to me (doesn't pass the Honest Abe test with a penny) I will buy new tires of my choice from my local Les Schwab dealer, of whom only sales what he will warranty, then continue to inspect, check and drive the new ones again and again, Happy camping!

My Trailer came with Tow Master.
As you can see I have replaced them.

Another thing to check on those tires is the valve. They should have a high pressure valves on them (metal valves) not the black plastic. Our tire blew out after 2 years with less than 14,000 miles on them. The tire guy told us because of our Wildcat 28rkbs, we should of had the metal valves. That has been done.

The only time you need the metal valve is when the normal cold inflation is 80 psi or over. The rubber valves are rated for 60 psi. Now there is a 120 percent safety margin in these ratings, so most people get by. If you have load range "C" or "D" tires, you do not need metal valves. If you are running 80 psi or over, check the stamping on the wheel as it has a pressure rating also.

My 28RKSB does indeed have 16" E rated tires. I'll have to double check the valve stem!

When we had a Casita travel trailer, we were active on a forum where there was a tremendous amount of catastrophic failures of the 14-inch C-rated Goodyear Marathons that came standard on the Casita. Seriously, they had more complaints about those tires than this forum has about Concertones. Finally, Casita began offering the 15-inch Marathons as an option, and that seemed to be much better. Before that option was available, lots of us went to the 14-inch D-rated Kumho (from Korea) tires and had better success, possibly because of the D rating. Some believed the C tires were just barely enough to accommodate the Casita's weight. I just thought that might be interesting.

I'm a service technician for an RV dealer and we've had lots of tire failures from the Trail Express trailer tires most have been the 15 inch ST225 75R15s load range D and the ST205 75R15s. My personal travel trailer came with these tires and I had one blow with less than 2000 miles on them and I know they were at the correct inflation because I had just packed the wheel bearings and checked tire pressure a week before it let go.
I wouldn't recomend these foriegn made tires to anyone.
