Are you sure it isn't Taiwan? They are owned by Cheng Shin Rubber, HQ'd in Ducan, Taiwan.

I'm not sure, actually but I was pretty sure it was Thailand. I could be wrong, but it's definitely not USA.

Maxxis has operations in Taiwan, China, Thailand, Vietnam.
For what it's worth, no ST tires are made in the US. They are all made in the Far East.

I've already had a Tow Max tread separate. I replaced it with a Maxxis, and will replace the other 3 with Maxxis in a couple of months. I've had one set of GY Marabombs... no more.

After having three tire problems (sidewall leaks in the spare, bulging sidewall, and another slow leak) in first year and 5,000 miles, we replaced all with load range D Marathons. I prefer Michelin but they did not have a correct size available.

X'S 2 I got 6000 miles on mine before a blowout. IMO you got a good tire now, I have had GY on all my trailers and never had a problem, always changed them between 4 and 5 years, never even got a flat. As you know that this always causes an argument on tires, but I swear by them myself. You made a great choice....Smart Move, I got the 15" "D" rated and run them at 65 PSI what they say. After over 4000 miles on them they still look like new....

I have the Marathon's also, but starting to have problems with them after about 17,000 miles on them. My trips are about 4,000 miles everytime we go. I know I am going to start something but my friends are telling me to go to LT. I ahave ST 23580R16 now. My trailer is just over 16,000 lbs. 37' Brookstone 5r
