And don't forget, many Fords, both passenger and truck come with Hankook tires on them.

You may be correct, but Cooper tire says they don't build trailer tires in the US.

Try etrailer.com. I have used them and they are very dependable. I bought 4 range d tires for my previous camper. They sell Karrier and Task Master brands,

That plant is expected to produce tires starting this December. Its in Clarksville TN. Hope I can get some good prices as it's about 10 miles from my sticks and stone home!

Look for your DOT number (e.g., mine is 7BAY AT5). The first 2 digits are the manufacturing facility (e.g., for me, it's "7B").

Then go here and look for the place your tires are made.

If Iwannacamp is correct, you may very well find your Cooper tires were made in China.

Had Duros on my previous tt, put over 18.5 k on them over 4 years. Upgraded from "c" to "d". Had Gateway Tire order them for me and changed out stems to short metal one. No issues with Duro the five years I ran them for over 21k .

I put Kenda Load Range D tires on my Wildwood that came with the 14" load range c tires. I ordered them from www.simpletires.com. Kenda tires are very highly rated and we've had excellent results with them. Here is something amazing: Since buying them (a year ago) they have not lost any air pressure! To me that's astonishing. Our previous no name Chinese tires were losing air continually. Every few weeks I had to add about 5 pounds or so.
