I wouldn't limit myself strictly to USA made tires. My Maxxis tires were manufactured in Thailand, and I think most, if not all are.

But the big question is was it a tire issue due to manufacturing, or was the tire not inflated properly and/or ran above the speed rating of the tire. Or possible an undersized tire/ overloaded tire?

Some of the off brand models, I totally agree!!! But the Carlisles have been great as I mentioned.

Hopefully someone will post up where the Maxxis are made. I don't remember at the moment.

I bought a set of Goodyear Marathons back in 2009 and they were USA made. I will do some checking to see if that's still the case. Thanks.

Guys you make me laugh with your chinese versus USA quality....are you not buying junk made in usa ? Or made in canada ? Our trailer are made in USA can we say its great quality ? Lazyboy make sofa in the usa and their leather looks like s...t and stitches let go after 3 years! so there is a lots of junk made on our continent, made in usa is far from being a guaranty of quality ! Just think about home appliances China can produce excellent quality, maybe our cdn usa manager force them to make sh...y product ?

SmokerBill, you are right, I won't rule out tires due only to country of manufacture. I just am very skeptical of tires made in China. Thank you for your input.

You bet. Main thing is to read reviews and do some research. Like Homer said, it's not so much the country of manufacture, it's the quality of the product going out the door.

Maxxis tires are rated very good by virtually every person I know and everything I read. They are made in Thailand

Carslisle radial trails, I don't know but they are rated highly. This tire gets good ratings but has not been out very long.

Marathons ST - I have owned 5 sets of them and would never buy another one. They used to be made in USA but are now made in China.

G614!
Sorry, but that's what I think.
We can debate the overall quality of many products but, to me, when it comes to a tire for the 5er, it's the 614. Failing that I'd get a Maxxis, and I do realize that it's an LT (not an ST).
