Angry Kenda Tires

Has anyone else had any trouble with Kenda tires? I have replaced 3 already with the last one being a violent blow out, taking out the side of my RV.

Our factories in Asia (Taiwan, China, Vietnam) provide quality products to suit a wide variety of applications.

THAT Explains it!

Most of the trailer tire issues in the US now are chinese tires. Cooper makes one here in the good ole USA

They merged with Cooper a while ago. They make a line of tires for RV's with the Klever lable. I have seen on some other forums that other have had similar problems.

Kendra tires

My neighbor had a TT with Kendra tires. Third time out he had a blow out. The tread flew off the tire. He ended up replacing them with Maxxis. My suggestion is get rid of the Kendra tires ASAP. Check out Michelin, Maxxis or Cooper.

Goodyear Marathon trailer tires seem to also be one to AVOID!

Call Kenda tire 1800-225-4714 and talk with Roger Ansel in the Warranty department. I had seperate and the blow out did almost 7K in damage. They gave me 100.00 toward purchase of another tire. I would replace them as soon as you can.

Cooper tires have had a good reputation, however there are some Cooper tires that are made in China, suggestion look at where the tires are made before you by, It is printed along the inter edge of the tire where the rim is mounted. This past Spring I was checking in to tire sizes and a Cooper ST205/75R 15 was made in U.S.A then I checked another Cooper tire that was larger an ST225/R75 15 and it was made in China, so beware! Both tires had the brand name COOPER on the tire.

Yes, we had a serious blow-out this fall back right tire that took out our 5th Wheel slide-out fender. How can I contact the company that makes Kendra tires?

If you have tires made in China, replace them. We had two tires that did damage to our Montana when we were towing a 5th wheel. I replaced them with BF Goodrich and had no more problems.
