Lionshead CastleRock tire warranty

I’m still waiting for a response from them, but upon inspection of my tires I found one of them appears to have dry rot cracking already on only a 7-month old tire.

Supposed to be a “1-year no excuses” warranty. This looks like a defective tire to me.

Does anyone have any experience with their warranty?

I dealt with Lionshead over a wheel issue. They were very good to deal with. I had a wheel that was leaking and the dealer was giving me the run around. I called Lionshead and they told me they would replace the wheel. When they found out that they didn't make that exact model they allowed me to pick out another set. They shipped them to me for free and sent a check for the cost of having a shop switch out the tires. I was very impressed. This was in 2016.

They call them China bombs for a reason. Once we heard of all the damage done from blowouts we switched to Goodyear Endurance. The Castle rock tires on mine looked perfect when I took them off,just didn't trust them.

We had a blowout on our previous trailer, and GD Imagine with westlake tires, which are just as bad as Castle Rocks. It did a fair amount of damage. I refused to drive our new trailer off the lot until GY Endurance were put on.

Yes, I’ve read about mixed quality.

This does have me second guessing if I even want a warranty replacement, or if I drop $500 on a new set of new Carlise tires. That’s just hard being the factory tires are only a few months old with less than 3,000 miles.

I have experience with "mixed quality" Castle Rocks. The tires were one year old, but unused this summer. Maybe 500 miles total.. Always maintained at 80 psi.
Almost $2k later I feel better. Went Goodyear Endurance 16" and TST 507 pressure monitor for trailer and truck. The TST 507 is a cool item. TST service is the best also. I had no issues with the system. Thought I'd lost the sender marking stickers. Sent them an email and they were on the phone in 5 minutes. Too good!
Anyone need some nice 15" 'Rocks and wheels? Click image for larger version

Ditched the Castle Rocks as soon as I got the TT to the house. Put over 10k in my MAXXIS 8008s in one year.

I had less than 500 miles on these. Might see what they'll do.
Be nice to have 4. I'm out both wheel and tire. No damage to the trailer. Interesting that the front tire wasn't also destroyed.

I also have had a very good experience with Lionshead. I had a leaky wheel. They sent me a new wheel and tire at no cost. All I had to do was fill out some paper work and send them a few pictures. They also wanted some info off the wheel. It was all with the warranty.

Very pleased.

OBTW Westlake "G" rated tires are pretty good and get good reviews. The same can not be said for their lower rated tires (D&E).

I decided to go ahead and ditch the CastleRocks for Carlise Radial Trail HD. Made me too uneasy and worried about the other 3. Piece of mind replacing all 5 tires.
