Triangle Trailer Tires

Picked up a new 5th wheel, 2012 Forest River V-Cross on 2-17-2012 and noticed that they have Triangle tires, 225 R15 ST. Does any one have any experience with them? Fron their website I know that they are made in China?

No experience with them but plenty of experience with trailer tires. Be sure to check the date of manufacture on the tire. Always keep the proper air pressure in them and check the pressures religiously. After you've had them for two years replace them with something better.

I am in need of 5 new tires on my 2012 Salem 27RKSS with 2000 miles on them. The dealer shipped with 40 lbs max in all 5 Bias Plys. treads are ripped to shreds.

Good Year Marathons are now made in China. Looking for some guidance on what to stay away from - and what to look at.
Some say MAxxis are a good tire better than the Goodyears.

I had Triangle tires for 3 years without any problems. Actually, they have been the best tires ever on our travel trailer. Always rotated and balanced so maybe thats why they wore well.
