tires: makes and models?

I am going to replace my old Goodyear Marathon tires. I am concerned about the horrible reviews of the new made in China tires. Any ideas?

I think if you go to the search drop down in the blue bar above, use the GOOGLE search field and type in tires, you will get more ideas than you really want! Maybe search for LT tires as well, commercial tires.....pretty much anything you can think of has been covered in great detail

You can read lots of good and bad about any brand of trailer tire. I will be purchasing my 4th set of Marathons in about two weeks. I only put about 45k to 50k on a set of tires and have had only one tire go bad (out of round). We put about 20k to 25k miles a year on our Airstream, so age is not a factor. Check your air pressure at least once a week while traveling and keep them balanced and rotated.

You pay your money and take your chances.

Maybe I missed something - but it was my understanding that the GYMs were once again being manufactured in the U.S.???

Until it say's Germany on rubber I am not buying them

I need to pull my GY time bomb spare before it's to late. Yeah it's on there because other GY failed on previous owner and I get to fix damage. I hope the GYs are better than stock generic rubber on Jeeps, paper thin sidewalls. Here are stocker tires called ST's omg 10k mile tires.
