No, Maxxis is not a China owned company.

Notice the DOT code at the bottom of the tire. You may have to blow it up and turn your computer upside down but you will see "20ZD". Just put 4 of these on my Aviator.

So you say this" I spend my money to be safe and to keep you safe. I can look at DW and say I worked on it" Yet you won't pass on this magic purchase so we can say the same.
Puzzling?

I am not trying to pick a product and sing about or against. Just trying to be a responsible person in my life. I miss the magic purchase point. Not being a trouble to your point. Please explain..

Your statement clearly states you are quite happy with your purchase regarding the safety of your family and other travelers. I was asking if you would pass on the info of your purchase. If you feel you would rather not. It's OK.

mike.t,
Sometimes folks can sound ruff when they are trying to "type" talk. Typing to each other vs sitting and talking across a table is not as good, miss the beer drinking point.

You nailed it. I am happy after reading opinions for a year and reaching out to a member that made me think that this member had a good perspective.

I am satisfied that I have, a good, and possibly better, chance of having a good experience with tires. When I can speak to the good or bad about it, I will, I just do not have the stripes yet.

That being said, Everyone can share good and bad stories about a brand of tire. The bottom line is, we all want to be safe.

PS. Goodyear
That should get it going...

Why aren't folks putting heavy duty truck tires on these trailers?

Some members say they've switched to LT truck tires and are happy with them. LT tires are available in many 16" and larger sizes but only available in limited 15" sizes and nothing in 14" or smaller.

Others have gone with Goodyear's G614 heavy trailer tire but they're only available in one size.

So, in many cases the option just isn't available to go with anything other than a ST tire made somewhere in Asia. Depending on the size you need you may not be able to get anything better than a LR D which is my situation for size ST205/75R15 tires.
