i'd guess that if they are 'in stock' that they are old tires.

I just bought 4 Maxxis tires for mine. They appear to have a good reputation. I have not read any bad posts about them.

To answer the original title question: with tires, the country of origin is molded into the sidewall, as required by federal law.

I bought a set of Marathons last month. I tried three dealers and they all had made in china tires . . . but one dealer had 2010 DOM made in usa. He had to dig.

I found made in china and made in usa in the same size tires with 18-10, 19-10, and 21-10 dates of manufacturer. It appears they are being made in both countries at the same time. I found china dates made after my 2010 USA dates.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

UNfortunately, Marathons, Carlisles, Tow Master, Superpro Hercules, all have Made in China. Travelling only 140 miles to RMVAC rally and only 60 miles heading home, one of our Globe Trotter's Carlisles, Load Range D, 225X75X15 tires exploded. Slilght underbelly damage luckily, but Discount Tire said they self-destruct at 5 years in age. AFter arriving home, checked the other tire, and its belts have slipped and deformed and would have popped before too long. We have kept the trailers indoors, elevated with tires off the floor or on mats to protect them from the concrete floor and they still disintegrated.
We are going to check into BF Goodrich Commercial TA 22X75X16 when we buy tires of any on our Airstreams. We have HAD IT with ST Trailer tires. Better tire bead, ability to be dragged laterally on tandem axle trailer Blah, Blah Blah. We don't do circles in our airstreams, so come cornering on a trip can't screw up the Dexter Axles that bad????
Our recently acquired Squarestream will be the first to exhibit the BFG Commerical TA. A Local trailer repair center and Dexter dealer,. JIm 's Repair Denver, said they only use these tires on their trailers with great results.
