My 2011 Rockwood still has the factory installed Duro 205/75R15 tires. I have no idea how many miles the previous owner put on them but I may have put around 1000 miles on them in the one year I've owned it. Duro tires are made in Asia - Taiwan, Thailand and China. Mine still look fine but since they are at least 5 years old I'll be replacing them, including the spare, with Maxxis tires this Spring.

I'm curious what your Maxxis are?
The Maxxis load D have a R rating according to some places. Maxxis recommends not exceeding 65 MPH nor does it list a speed rating on their website.

We will be taking our TT to San Antonio over Valentines week. I know the first stop will be a truck stop to put the TT on the scale. Don't want to be overweight on original tires.

What will you do if you are overweight, setting out for your trip? We usually will get somethings like milk or bottled water once we get where we are going. Food for thought. If we know the area or know that there is a Wal-Mart really close we will even get food then. Shaving a little weight here and there helps I think.

The Maxxis Trailer ST tires are manufactured in Thailand and Taiwan. So technically they are not China Bombs.

Tomato tamato Is this about non USofA made tires? I think that is what the OP meant and said "China Bomb" not knowing. My take.

We will not shop for food until we get to San Antonio and we never carry more that 1- gallons of water. We will see what happens.
