I wish I had that insight. I did ask the salesperson about swapping tires and was told they didn't do that. I decided to go 2 years max with the oem tires and didn't make it.

X2! I had the Firestone Wilderness AT's on my Ranger. They were great tires and also had good tread life. I only replaced them because Ford offered money, enough to partially put new wheels on too. I ended up upgrading to a larger tire and wheel. I have also owned the Firestone Destination M/T's, also a great tire. I don't believe Firestone was at fault. Under inflate any tire too far for too long with too much load and problems will arise.

Upgraded to Carlisle D load range from Trail Express C load range tires beginning of season this year. The Trail Express tires showed signs of cracking on the side walls and constantly leaking. To answer the question if Carlisle are made in China, the answer is yes. I also installed a Dill TPMS system. Very happy so far with the Carlisle's.

I had great luck with my Carlisles as well. They lasted 9 years with no problems. I should not have pushed them that far and will never do that again after learning from everyone here that tires should be replaced sooner. I plan on 5 years max now.

Forest River should offer a wheel and tire upgrade. I would have gladly paid the difference for a good tire vs the junk that came on our RV.

I had read that Wildcat was offering wheel and/or tire upgrades to non-china bombs and that CC was offering LT tires on it's 5W. These are baby steps but at least stepping in the right direction.

X2 I would have done it even if the dealer made it an option.

Has anyone tried Costco's Greenball trailer tires. I have had good luck with my other tire purchases from Costco.

Discount tire sold Greenballs at one time, but dropped the brand. Costco appears to have an exact match load rating policy. They also want wheel torque documentation from the trailer manufacturer.
