A day late and a dollar short as they say, but good news for sure.

HOPEFULLY, they will be better built and last longer then the China tires do/did.

I would like to be able to purchase American-made products, but it's just not happening in most Fields. However, when manufacturers order products to be made in China, they send specs. If they request crap, they get crap. Of course, some may just ask for bids and accept whatever they get. But with lawsuits as common as they are I would imagine most tire manufacturers set up the specifications to be bid on.

Sounds like Jayco and other manufacturers have been monitoring online forums. My guess is that the new Goodyear Endurance tires will be a cheaper economy grade tire, even if American made. Otherwise Jayco wouldn't have made the deal with them. Just my humble opinion.

I am expecting my new set of Maxxis tires to arrive early next week - Only had my trailer since late June but don't want to push my luck. I might have waited if I had known about this...

Do you really beleive that Made in USA or Made in Canada products are a whole lot better then what comes from overseas ? Ok economically its better, but the products itself ? I dont think so if I take for example , my TT, and my Lazboy furniture .... But Im all in to keep our job on this side of the ocean for sure :-)

Or maybe Jayco and Goodyear have some inside information that the feds are going to ban the Chinese junk from reaching our shores for use on our roads?

That would be a good thing in my book.

You will not find a better tire than Maxxis anywhere on this planet.

The problem with tires stems from making purchase decisions on price alone at the expense of specification and reputation.
