I don't recall what the brand was. Just know when we returned home I put the trailer away for the season and when spring rolled around I pulled the trailer out and was on the way to get four new tires when I lost another tread. Fortunately I was less than a half mile from home and had not gotten on the freeway. I could not find Maxxis locally and put on Carlisle's which are made in China. We drove 8500 miles on one trip last year and just completed 4600 miles this year and have not had any problems, but I would feel better if we had U. S. made tires.

Dee, I've been out of internet access for about a week, but I echo the recommendation for Maxxis tires. I just replaced mine on the trailer after maybe 4 years? and never had a problem with them.

Also, because heat is a source of tire failure, I highly recommend the TireMinder tire and temperature monitoring system from Minder Research. I've got the sensors installed on my tow vehicle and on my trailer and they allow me to constantly monitor the temperature and pressure in all my tires. I've had NO false alarms or signal dropouts with this system either. The one problem I had (my own stupidity) was quickly resolved through a phone call to Minder Research.

RichR, we are heading to Charley's tomorrow,Tues. They indicated on the phone that getting a Maxxii tire would be easy once we showed up at their place of business on Orange Blossom Trail. Thanks so much for your assistance. Keep your fingers crossed that they can deliver what they promise, ours are crossed.

I hope they can help you. I found them by doing a google search for "Maxxis tires in Orlando".

Dee, Hope you got the spare! Best of luck. We're heading out within the hour to Blue Spring SP north of Orlando. Should be there by 3pm. I'm hoping you get the spare and all is well.

I personally have no distrust of a product based on where it is made. Look at all the Apple products, considered best in the world and yet every one made in China. It isn't the Chinese with the problem, it is the executives asking them to cut every possible corner to make the product as cheap as possible. Some companies basically design, engineer, and then order a peice of junk. China just makes what was ordered.

RichR, we stopped by Charley's for the Maxxi tire, but he pushed the time to getting one to the end of the day if we would pay him for the tire in advance. If you saw the condition of his business, you certainly would not hand him any advance money; it looked like a used tire grave yard, not a thriving new tire business. Therefore, there is a business in the Orlando area named Discount Tire which has branches all over the area and seems to have a heavy monopoly in the area in selling D-load 15" camper tires, and guess what, they are pushing Carlisles and, of course, have them in stock and would have had to order a Maxxi with a five-day wait time. Yes, you got it, we purchased the Carlisle for a not so discounted price. When we get home, we will deal with replacing all of these tires.
Thanks again for your help.

I was hoping you could have found the Maxxis tire. Evidently the website is much neater than the business location. Good luck with the Carlisle, it will probably be okay.

As stated, I put Carlisle's on our trailer last yer before we did our 8500 mile trip and we have put an additional 4700 miles on them since then. So far I have not had any problems and when I bought them at America's Tire, which is Discount Tires in other parts of the U. S., I paid extra for a warranty contract which would cover tire replacement if the tire fails or is damaged by normal road hazards. I'm sure I would be challenged on any claim.
