Most of the posts related to tire problems are about powerking tow max tires.
There is much debate about the quality of tires and why, if at all, some tires seem to have a higher failure rate than others.
IMHO, and from some research, found that most tires appear to be engineerined and designed in one country, but produced from several large tire plants in China. Some big name brands are also made in China as well.
These same plants appear to private label and sell tires around the world, so it's hard to pin down what's what.
A few key rules to follow:
Understand the weight ratings of the tires and weight of your trailer. Don't push your luck by overloading weight limits ( stay well under ) ( trailer GVWR, minus tongue weight, divided by the number of tires. Compared to the weight ratings found on the side of your tires)
Set air pressure to the right level found on the side of your trailer. Keep a close eye on the air pressure. Check every day on your trip. ( cold )
Observe the speed ratings for ST tires (60 mph )
Inspect tires for signs of damage or sidewall bulging when you stop along the way.
These are all true no matter what type of tire you have.
I have the dreaded tow max tires and I am not rushing out to replace them
