Akuret Tires

Just purchased new Columbus 320rs. Has anyone had any issues with the Akuret tires? Thanks

I also never heard of this brand but many tires made in china of different brands are made by the the same maker. There are so many different brands that it is confusing. My tires are made under the triangle brands.

I have a 2012 Sabre 31 RETS-6 manufactured November 2011 that has Akuret HF 188 tires. They are Chinese imports and I don't feel comfortable
with them but will try to get at least the first season out of them before replacing.
At least the date code on them show that they were made the last week of August 2011 so they were not old inventory.
Many new trailers have tires that are already over a year old when they are put on a new trailer. Talked to a guy this weekend with a Cedar Creek Silverback that said he found out his new purchase had year old tires (don't know the brand) when he bought the new trailer. He already had one blow out. Chinese junk, I just don't understand why American companies are allowed to import and sell such junk to the RV industry.

You have to realize that the Chinese junk is made by American companies that decided that it would be more profitable to manufacture to make product in a country with less rules about nearly everything, they can pollute the air the rivers the workers and there is no accountability,I know we are not supposed to broach these subjects on here but it is hard to discuss this subject without doing so, so sorry.

My 2011 Blue Ridge came with Good Year tires from the factory. Cool, right? When I was washing it the other day, I noticed that stamped on the sidewall is the now common phrase "Made in China". Even the name brands aren't safe anymore.

have a loaner at this moment while I am waiting for my minilite from the factory. It is a 2009 R Pod and I was looking at the tires. They are Good Year marathon and the tire says it is made in U.S.A. Some marathon are also made in China if I understand!
