2010 Wildcat tires

Hullo all. Just got my new 2010 Wildcat 28RKBS parked in my driveway. Really looking forward to it. One question I have right off the bat is the tires. These are called "Trail Express" and also "Power Touring". They are 16" E-rated tires (a good thing), but I cannot find anything about them on the web or anywhere else. Does anyone know anything about them? Good, bad, or indifferent. They look pretty good, but then again, Carlisle's look pretty good!!

Well, wow...nothing!?? Okay, so here's what I found from poking around on a couple of other forums I belong to. These are either manufactured by Bridgestone/Firestone in Poland, or they are from a Chinese manufacturer called Doublestar. Hmmm, something tells me China's gonna win on this one. Does anyone else have these tires??

Well, I personally don't have a lot of use for Carlisles since they have a history of failures. My only flat occurred with a properly inflated Carlisle on my Flagstaff. I checked the tires the morning before pulling out and 80 miles down the road the front left blew. There are some pictures I posted of it here on this forum somewhere. If I can find them, I will post a link to them. I replaced all of them with Goodyear Marathons.

My old TT had Carlisles, and had 'em on there the 5 years I had it. I only had one problem, and that was a screw in the tire. The dealer has it now. But the ones on this one are certainly something I've never heard of before. This "Trail Express".

Here are a couple of pictures of my blown tire. The tire had less than 5000 miles. They were called Radial Trail and were Chinese made.

Mine has them too. This is what I found, they are distribited by Voma Tire I believe.

Looks like they are made by Hong kong Tri-Ace Tire Co.

I know there is a web site listed on the the pamphlet i got with my RV however I am about 3500 miles away from it right now.

Ah, interesting. I did not get a pamphlet with mine for the tires. Another thing to hit up with the dealer.

That would be great! I appreciate it. I'm going to the dealer tonight anyway, but we'll see if he can produce the info on the tyres!

There's 100% proof that cheaper is just cheaper. It's ridiculous for any tire to self-destruct with so little mileage on them. Did it do much damage?
Thankfully nobody got hurt or worse.
